Commenting on his new position, Mike said:
"CAfIT has a well-defined position in the marketplace, focusing on dedicated
top-end decision support solutions, with the requisite interfaces to the order management process. This approach is quite different from other offerings and sets CAfIT apart in a fundamental way. Joining CAfIT is an exciting opportunity for me personally on several levels. I believe that I can add a complementary dimension to the existing CAfIT mix, bringing specific experience of delivery and implementation across a wide range of systems. In addition, I can bring an additional business perspective, gained from working in an asset management company.
"CAfIT is a highly focused company that knows where it is going and has embarked on proactive growth. With my organisational background, I believe I can play a significant role in aiding this process at an important time in the company's development. I am greatly looking forward to helping CAfIT realise its expansion plans, and to developing new, leading edge solutions that will continue to add competitive advantage to our clients and differentiate us in the market."
Commenting for CAfIT, Commercial Managing Director Raquel Elias said:
"CAfIT is at a key point in its expansion. Mike's organisational and industry experience makes him a perfect fit for CAfIT as we continue to extend our product and support structure. Additionally, Mike's previous experience of implementing asset management systems will be of great value - particularly with respect to managing new implementations of CAfIT's systems in line with ongoing contract successes. This is a very exciting time for us, and we are delighted to welcome Mike on board."
