Infradata Group, one of the fastest-growing cyber security and cloud networking companies, announced today the expansion of its leadership team with the appointment of a COO, CFO and CTO. By serving leading global brands with the most complex security and networking environments, Infradata accelerates its worldwide growth while strategically strengthening its workforce.
Infradata Group, a global leader in cyber security, cloud networking solutions and services, announced today the appointment of Fiona Squire as Chief Operating Officer. Pieter-Jan Sterk was named as Chief Financial Officer and Mohamed El Haddouchi as Chief Technology Officer. Having named Nino Tomovski as the new CEO recently following IK Investment Partners acquiring a majority stake in the Infradata Group last year, these appointments complete a balanced management team with the strategic experience needed to support Infradata’s next stage of growth and development.
“We’re assembling a highly capable and well-rounded executive team ready to take Infradata to the next level and I’m pleased to welcome Fiona, Pieter-Jan and Mohamed as the newest members of the global leadership team,” said Nino Tomovski, CEO of Infradata.
Fiona Squire, Chief Operating Officer
Fiona has fully grasped the challenge of taking the lead as Chief Operating Officer for Infradata Group. With an intimate knowledge of the company and deeply rooted relationships with both customers and strategic partners, she combines a proven business track record with unrivalled, first-class delivery skills. Before being appointed as Managing Director at Infradata Limited, Fiona has successfully held several leadership roles at IMTECH.
“Our mission is to empower organisations by delivering next-generation cyber security and cloud networking solutions and services,” said Nino Tomovski, CEO of Infradata. “Our rate of growth makes it critical to bring in leaders like Pieter-Jan and to elevate outstanding performers like Fiona and Mohamed. I am excited to see where they help take us in 2019.”
“In Fiona, we have an accomplished business executive who understands the critical link between developing great people and a company’s ability to grow and transform,” Nino continued. “She brings both passion and expertise across the board with both people and organizational capabilities, operating within start-ups, fast-growing business and established businesses – key to our growth journey.”
Pieter-Jan Sterk, Chief Financial Officer
Pieter-Jan Sterk will lead the financial organization, automate processes and systems supporting all of Infradata's entities allowing Infradata to acquire seamlessly. Pieter-Jan Sterk will report to Chairman and CEO Nino Tomovski. The appointment is effective from March 2019.
“As CFO, Pieter-Jan brings tremendous experience building strong finance teams and leading strategic initiatives”, Nino Tomovski said. “Pieter-Jan is in equal parts a financial disciplinarian and growth-minded leader with a strong background in mergers and acquisitions, making him ideally suited for Infradata as we expand and optimize the business. Pieter-Jan is an equally critical hire for us at this juncture. He will focus on providing more relevant data to sales and operations, as well as a smooth integration of target companies after acquisition. That's why I am proud to have him join Infradata Group. Pieter-Jan has a keen eye for the financial as well as operational aspects of the business overall and is an important part of the future of Infradata Group.”
Mohamed El Haddouchi, Chief Technology Officer
With over seven years of experience at Infradata Group and having held multiple key management positions at Nokia and Siemens, Mohamed El Haddouchi was a logical choice to appoint as the Chief Technology Officer at Infradata. He played a leading role in developing our services portfolio and strategic roadmap. Mohamed is tasked with managing and developing the best of breed cyber and networking technology portfolio of Infradata, cultivating the tech infrastructure and engineering teams, in anticipation of rapid growth in the coming years.
Infradata has also revealed it is set to increase the size of its workforce by almost 25 percent this year, with many of the hires expected to be made up of security and networking engineers as well as project managers.
