“I am excited to be leading the business into a new phase of the organisation’s maturity as Credas transitions from being a successful start-up to being an acknowledged leader within our field. The business has enormous talent within our ranks, an enviable customer base, a genuinely leading product offering and a very clear strategic plan. The new Credas Connect platform, due to launch in October 2021, will also be a game-changer within our field. It is these factors that lead me to believe that the next 24 months will be enormously significant for the business and I’m delighted to be able to play a part in the next chapter of the Credas story.”
