Cleardata Appoints New Chairman
Mark was a founder shareholder of EDM in 2004, where he was Group CFO and Group Deputy CEO. Formerly he was Commercial and Finance Director for Hays Consulting and Solutions Group and prior to that worked for Murray Johnstone Private Equity.
Mark is joining the board during a period of rapid growth, with Cleardata experiencing its best performance in the company’s history. Achieving over £4 million in new contract wins, as well as recruiting an additional 50 employees in the last 7 months. Cleardata won the Let’s Grow Award in the North East Business Awards in March, to recognise its accelerated growth during the last year.
David Bryce, Managing Director, Cleardata commented “Mark brings a wealth of commercial and strategic experience from within the Document Management Industry and will help us take our business to the next level as we continue to grow. His financial and acquisition experience will be invaluable over the coming years and will complement the skills of our excellent management team.
Mark Jones added “I’m delighted to be joining Cleardata’s Board. I look forward to working with the team and developing further strategic opportunities for the business. Their financial growth over the last few years has been extremely impressive, led by an innovative approach from the dedicated management team. This has been strengthened by the company’s data consultancy services, which are in high demand. Cleardata reviews and understands the way businesses currently manage data and documentation and present industry leading solutions to cut costs and improve processes.
This is a really exciting time for the business, with their new state of the art £1.5m scanning and archiving centre in North Wales, near Chester. Built with the support of a £304,000 Grant from the Welsh Government, the new facility will help create 18 jobs over the next three years.”
