Business Expansion and Director Promotions

The company is proud to announce the internal promotions of Lee Pirouet and Julian Slater from senior management positions to Directors. The promotions coincide with three new senior hires; Paul le Herissier joins as Business Solutions Consultant, Daniel Mardell has been appointed Senior Technical Consultant and Peter Stoten is Senior Consultant for Business Change.

The internal promotions reflect the business philosophy to reward exemplary performance, personal development and leadership. Lee Pirouet, who has been appointed to Director of Technical Solutions, is highly competent with a varied skill set. He will continue to focus on the delivery of robust technical solutions to multi-jurisdictional Enterprise clients as well as focusing upon Prosperity 24.7’s managed services offerings.

Julian Slater, Director of Analytics and Reporting, is a business and operationally focused Software Architect with extensive experience both locally and in Europe.

Both Directors will continue to lead teams at Prosperity 24.7, provide high-level consultancy to clients, and work on innovative product creation and delivery.

Business expansion echoes the success of the business and sector; 2015 saw exponential increase in client acquisition for Prosperity 24.7 and according to Grant Thornton’s Business Confidence Monitor on the UK economy, it is predicted that the technology sector will see the greatest growth of all sectors in 2016 to help the drive for productivity of all industries.

His client portfolio is diverse, having worked across multiple sectors including Finance, Retail, Technology & Communication, Public Sector, and Supply Chain. Peter is a certified Lean Six Sigma Black Belt, Prince2 and MSP Practitioner.

Prosperity 24.7’s vision to constantly improve and challenge ways of working has seen the appointment of Daniel Mardell. He previously held an executive position within a major UK technology business where he led innovation and change across the financial services market in London. He has over 17 years’ experience providing technical pre-sales, consultancy, management and implementation of both Cloud based as well as physical Windows / VMware / server installations and network infrastructure.

Chris Clark, CEO of Prosperity 24.7, says: ‘This is a hugely dynamic and exciting time for Prosperity 24.7. The business environment both locally and internationally has afforded us the opportunity to expand, re-invent and innovate. I am very proud to announce the directorship promotions of Lee and Julian on our fifth anniversary as a business; they have demonstrated exceptional successes across their practice areas since joining the team.

We had our greatest year in 2015 achieving our highest utilisation and customer satisfaction rates since starting the company. This year we have branched into product delivery for a niche FinTech demand, which is seeing incredibly fast client adoption and broad interest in the financial services sector locally and in the UK. Our appointments are a reflection of our desire to continue to expand and diversify. To provide exceptional services to our clients we require exceptional people and Paul, Daniel and Peter are a reflection of that. We will continue to grow in a controlled fashion so long as we can recruit the best individuals across the Channel Islands and the UK.’
