Award-winning software development consultancy Box UK has appointed Matt Brooks as its Business Development Director. With a career in the software industry spanning more than 19 years, Matt brings a wealth of experience with him to Box UK, where he will be responsible for helping build on the organisation’s 18-year track record of delivering high-quality software solutions for progressive and visionary clients across the globe.
Prior to joining Box UK, Matt occupied the position of Vice President Marketing & Demand Generation EMEA at OpenText. Among his major achievements while in role are a restructuring of the Demand Generation team, a shift of focus for EMEA Marketing towards digital, and the delivery of half the global sales pipeline.
Matt’s previous roles also include serving as Senior Director within Engineering for OpenText, where he was responsible for the commercial activities surrounding new technology in their $1bn revenue product unit.
Speaking about joining the business development team at Box UK, Matt says: “The time is now for companies to secure competitive advantage in the not-so-new digital economy by modernising and investing in digital solutions to enable effective business transformation. Those that don’t take action will very likely be left behind.
“With Box UK’s huge depth and breadth of experience, and track record in delivering digital transformations for its clients, I couldn’t be more excited about our opportunity in 2016/17.”
Box UK is building on a period of sustained success, having delivered a number of high-profile projects for organisations across a range of industries and sectors in the past 12 months. This includes award-winning work for clients including TBC Bank, the Royal College of Nursing and BMJ, and the software development consultancy has also been nominated for Agile Consultancy of the Year in the 2016 Agile Awards as a result of its success in helping clients transform their approach to project delivery.
Box UK’s Managing Director, Benno Wasserstein, said of the appointment: “I’m very pleased to announce the addition of a heavyweight such as Matt to the team. His combination of industry experience and business acumen makes him ideally placed to support us in our efforts to deliver the greatest possible value for our clients, and we’re extremely excited about what comes next.”
Matt also commented: “I wanted to join a company that strives for excellence in everything from culture through to people, process and the technology they support, and Box UK is exactly that – a best-of-breed organisation delivering best-of-breed solutions. I am thrilled to be joining such a dynamic and proven group of people.”
