Alterian appoints chairman and chief executiveAlterian appoints chairman and chief executive

Bristol-based customer engagement technology and solutions agency, Alterian, has appointed Heath Davies as chief executive and Phil Cartmell as non-executive chairman.

Davies has substantial experience in the management and development of technology businesses, having been a former director at Sword Group in France.

Davies replaces David Eldridge who stepped down as chief executive in April.
 
Phil Cartmell is currently executive chairman of Corac Group plc, a technology business which develops compressors and electronics for the oil and gas industry. He is also a non-executive director of CSF Group plc, which provides data centre infrastructure in South East Asia. He was Chief Executive of VEGA Group PLC from 2001 to 2008.

Phil Cartmell replaces Keith Hamill, who will retire from the Board on 5 September 2011.

“The Board has undertaken a thorough search process and is very pleased to have been able to make two such strong appointments with the necessary experience and qualities to take the business forward,” said Hamill.

“Alterian suffered a major reverse when it failed by a substantial margin to make its forecasts for the year to 31 March 2011. The Company has some good and competitive products addressing growing markets and some very able people. If well managed, it will get back on track."
