Formerly chief operating officer (COO), commercial solutions at BAE Systems Applied Intelligence, Chris will be taking over from UK managing director Graham Lund who is taking up a new advisory role.

Effective immediately Chris will be accountable for the Group’s go-to-market functions which include sales and market strategy. He will ultimately be responsible for customer retention, growth and client satisfaction, as well as the overall revenue and contribution plan for the UK and international businesses. Chris will be supporting CEO, Mike Gordon, in creation and delivery of the strategic plan to deliver revenue growth, service and margin contribution across all Callcredit’s lines of business.

Chris said: “Callcredit has an impressive growth record, an enviable reputation with its customers, and an exceptional senior team. I'm delighted with the opportunity to join and contribute to its success in this next chapter.”
