Calvium is pleased to announce the appointment of Jo Reid as our new Managing Director, moving from her current role as Sales & Marketing Director to take up the position. This change will come into effect on September 1st 2015, as our Managing Director of the past 5 years, Richard Hull, moves into a more strategic role in the company, as Executive Chairman.
Here at Calvium we pride ourselves on being an innovative and forward thinking company, both in the apps that we make and in our approach to staff and business development. We have grown from 5 founding directors in 2009 to a team of 9, which will continue to grow in 2015 as we recruit 3 new members of staff from our new offices in Mariner House. Now, we are fine-tuning our management structure to fuel our next exciting phase of growth.
As Jo Reid becomes Managing Director, bringing her consultancy expertise and vast mobile design experience to the heart of the executive team, Richard Hull will step back from operational responsibilities as MD to take on a new strategic role as Executive Chairman, with particular responsibility for the overall development of the company. Tom Melamed will bring together all Sales, Marketing and Account Management activities in his newly expanded role as Client Services Director, whilst Ben Clayton maintains his role as Technical Director to ensure that we continue to deliver the high standard of work we have become known for. Our fifth founder, Phil Stenton, will continue to bring his wise advice and great experience to the board, as a non-executive director.
Jo Reid is excited by Calvium’s future. “I’m confident that these changes will enable us to become more strategic, setting us up to take Calvium on to even greater heights as we build existing relationships and grow new ones, sharing this great adventure together.”
