Concentra continues to invest for growth following a £41 million equity investment in May 2018.
Dominic Ely has taken up the post of CFO, with over 25 years’ experience in private equity and finance, including a 5-year post at the international SaaS company, Zinc Ahead. Meanwhile, Pavey Purewal has joined the team as CMO, following a 20-year career in Silicon Valley, including senior positions in Dynamic Signal and VMware. Tim Ross also joins as General Counsel, following a 15-year career, including senior positions at VEON, Vodafone and Kelway (now CDW UK).
Rupert Morrison, CEO and Founder of Concentra, says: “We’re delighted to welcome Dominic, Pavey and Tim to the team, and look forward to working together to continue to build on Concentra’s success. It’s been an exciting six months for the company as we continue to invest and grow, and OrgVue – our flagship workforce analysis and modelling product – goes from strength to strength in supporting our global clients to create more effective operating models.”
New President of Concentra Asia Pacific and new office in Hong Kong
To spearhead Concentra’s expansion into APAC, Robert Rooks has been appointed President of Concentra Asia Pacific. In his previous role at Deloitte as Financial Services Industry Clients and Markets Leader, China, Robert was responsible for leading the development of the firm’s Financial Services Market & Clients initiatives as well as the Banking and Securities segment in China. His 25 years of experience living and working in Japan, Korea, Hong Kong and Australia means he is ideally placed to develop OrgVue’s presence across the region.
Working from Concentra’s recently opened Hong Kong office, Robert has hired a number of senior delivery staff in Hong Kong and, with an office opening in Australia early in 2019, hired a senior country head and support team locally to service existing as well as new clients in-country and across the Asia Pacific region.
Robert is pleased with the rate of growth, “We’ve already been able to make a number of important hires in the APAC region, which is a key, high-growth market for us. So far, we’ve seen an excellent reaction from our existing clients and, with new name client signings across the region, I look forward to leading the Concentra’s growth and expansion and feel confident our product, OrgVue, will continue to support ongoing business change initiatives across the region.”
