Award winning cybersecurity specialist, Core to Cloud, has recently appointed a new Finance Director, Matt White, to help drive the firm’s UK and global growth plans.
Headquartered in Gloucestershire, the company has seen exciting growth over the last two years and is forecast to increase turnover by over 170% by the end of the year. This growth has been supported by a workforce that has doubled in size since the pandemic.
Newly appointed Finance Director, Matt White, who has ten years’ experience in services businesses, particularly those with a high growth trajectory, will support the board of Directors in streamlining the company’s current product and service portfolio and driving Core to Cloud’s ambitious expansion plans, that include the refurbishment and expansion of its workspaces at The Castle, in Cirencester.
Previously employed as Head of Finance at UCAS, part of his role will be to ensure that Core to Cloud’s systems and processes are set up to allow the business to grow and to ensure that products and services remain correctly priced and competitive.
Matt White, Finance Director at Core to Cloud said, “I am thrilled to be joining the team at Core to Cloud to help support the business with its exciting growth plans. It’s an exciting time for the company, we have an industry leading reputation for providing bespoke security solutions for a diverse customer base. A part of my role will be to support our sales team with competitively priced products and services that offer real value for money for our customers.”
Having established itself in the market as a disruptive innovator in cutting edge cybersecurity solutions, Core to Cloud provides industry leading network visibility, validation, governance and control, and incident response. Founded in 2015 by James Cunningham and Mark Liddle, Core to Cloud supports an expanding portfolio of private and public sector clients, including the high street retailer Fat Face, GFK and over 50 UK NHS Trusts, to operate safely and securely in a world of increasing online threats.
Alongside the day-to-day financial operations, White will also be involved in the firm’s globalisation plans, ensuring that the firm’s growth remains sustainable. The vision for the future involves Core to Cloud expanding into new markets in the UK and worldwide, and widening its product offering further.
Matt said, “My role will ensure that the business is funded to take advantage of new opportunities, ensure growth is profitable and that internal systems and processes keep pace with the business’ growth ambitions. My priority will be to ensure we secure the right resources with the correct technical capabilities. Through supporting the board and ensuring we have the right employee proposition to be able to recruit the talent we require to push the business forward – there’s no reason why the sky can’t be the limit.”
