CloudCall appoints new CTO from Tandem Bank
Leicester’s AIM-listed telecommunications firm CloudCall has announced the appointment of Paul Clark as its Chief Technology Officer (CTO).
Clark brings two decades of experience to the role, and joined CloudCall on Monday from Tandem Bank where he was the CTO, responsible for technology strategy, architecture, engineering and delivery operations.
The company was founded in 2012 and employs around 170 people across four countries and boasts 40,000 users of its business VoIP platform.
CloudCall said that Clark had significantly improved the use of automation and self-service capability at Tandem, both of which are key to its own product roadmap.
Prior to Tandem, Clark held senior technical leadership roles at leading brands including HSBC, ITV, BBC and Channel 4.
He will report directly into CEO Simon Cleaver as a member of the Executive Committee rather than being a full member of the PLC Board.
“At a time when businesses and employees are looking for the very best digital tools available in the workplace, I am excited to help drive CloudCall’s Integrated Communications strategy further ahead,” said Clark.
Cleaver added: “Paul’s appointment as CTO is another important milestone in our plans to deliver significant scale and growth for CloudCall, demonstrating our continued investment into the business.
“His appointment ensures we have industry-leading technical management for our product and development teams, and his impressive background and track record of success leading technical projects at well-known global brands showcases Paul’s unique skill set.
“The board and I look forward to working with him to drive our product and service capabilities through to the next level.”
