White Clarke Group has announced a restructure of executive roles within its board of management to support new delivery capabilities.
The change will facilitate a new phase in its transformation into a software product company and the ongoing development of a “high speed, high quality, low cost” delivery capability, as well as aid recent necessary changes to the way employees work.
Brendan Gleeson, global chief executive officer at White Clarke Group, said: “With immediate effect, we are establishing regional CEOs for each of our offices to take responsibility for ensuring close integration between project, software delivery and service delivery teams.”
Alongside White Clarke Group’s recent hire of Wayne Ross as chief technical officer (CTO), the company is announcing the new title of chief product officer within the organisation. This will be held by former chief operating officer (CPO) Peter Dyson, who will directly oversee White Clarke Group’s functional governance and the alignment of sales and marketing efforts. He will also manage White Clarke Group’s rollout of new product offerings and services.
Other senior roles affected by the restructure include Nick Ockwell’s promotion to chief information officer (CIO), Matt Smith’s appointment as CEO UK and Europe, John Grant taking on the role of CEO Asia Pacific (APAC) and Jonathan Dodds new role as CEO Americas.
Gleeson said: “Our product reached a new level of maturity at the start of 2020, with the latest version of our CALMS asset finance software now live with nine customers. With continued investment in our product and delivery automation tooling, we are well-positioned to support our clients during this difficult period and to nurture new opportunities as they arise.”
