Mastek Appoints New European Managing Director

21 January 2009

Mastek, the international software solutions company, has appointed Kees Ten Nijenhuis as Managing Director, Mastek Europe. This is a UK executive board appointment and Ten Nijenhuis’ primary role at Mastek will be to grow Mastek’s European operations through the UK Leadership Team.

Ten Nijenhuis’ appointment is in conjunction with a reshuffle of the Mastek UK executive board, which has resulted in Joe Venkataraman taking on new challenges in the role of Director, Strategic Initiatives for Mastek Group. During his long service as Managing Director with Mastek UK, Joe has delivered significant growth, turning the UK business into the largest of all the Mastek Group regions.

Commenting on his appointment, Ten Nijenhuis said, “Mastek has considerable experience of delivering large-scale, groundbreaking IT projects. The quality of the team and the scope of market opportunity were key factors in my decision to join the company. It is exciting for me to be joining Mastek at this stage of its development and I look forward to using my skills and experience to enhance our market share and continue our numerous client successes into the future.”

Ten Nijenhuis has over 25 years of industry experience. Prior to joining Mastek, he spent six years leading the growth of Wipro’s European IT services business from a small Indian-based IT service outsourcer to a thriving multi-billion dollar operation. The first 20 years of Ten Nijenhuis’ career was spent within a variety of global technology, manufacturing and service companies including Siebel Systems, Texas Instruments, LCI Technology Group and Fokker Aircraft to name a few, predominantly in sales and marketing executive roles.

Joe Venkataraman, Director, Strategic Initiatives, Mastek Group comments, “Kees will be integral to the next stage of Mastek’s growth. His significant specialist expertise, drive and ambition will be a key element in Mastek’s commitment to establish itself as a leader in transforming businesses through IT.”
