White Clarke Group has announced a restructure of executive roles within its board of management. 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, White Clarke Group’s Global CEO, commented: “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 CTO, the company is announcing the new title of Chief Product Officer within the organisation. This will be held by former Group COO Peter Dyson, who will now directly oversee White Clarke Group’s functional governance and the alignment of sales and marketing efforts. As CPO, he will also manage White Clarke Group’s rollout of new product offerings and services.
Other senior roles affected by the restructuring include Nick Ockwell’s promotion to CIO, Matt Smith’s appointment as CEO UK & Europe, John Grant taking on the role of CEO APAC and Jonathan Dodds new role as CEO Americas.
Gleeson expanded on the reasons for the restructure: “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.”
