Orbus Software, a cloud solutions provider for digital transformation, today announced Gareth Burton as the company’s Chief Executive Officer.
Burton has extensive experience at international technology companies and SaaS businesses, previously holding the position of CEO at ThinkProject, alongside senior roles at Motorola and BT. He also held board level IT positions within the oil and gas, construction and FinTech software sectors, as CIO of Laing O’Rourke, Baker Hughes and Finastra.
Across his career, Burton has led large digital transformation programs and will use his expertise to lead Orbus Software into the next stage of its growth.
“I’m joining at such a pivotal stage in Orbus Software’s journey,” said Burton. “At a time when only 30% of organisations can successfully navigate through a meaningful digital transformation, it’s crucial we continue providing our customers with the visibility and collaborative tools they need to blend digital and human capabilities and apply them to all dimensions of their business as they transform. Orbus has an incredibly talented and diverse team who are on a mission to improve the potential of every organization through harnessing the power of Enterprise Architecture. I look forward to working with our customers, partners, and the entire Orbus ecosystem as we continue to scale globally.”
His new position at Orbus reflects the significant changes underway within the business, which includes its continued rapid expansion into the US and the launch of its new global partner program. Burton’s appointment will assist in growing the company’s partner network, while supporting the company’s expansion into new markets.
The company’s growth is also reflected in its portfolio of leading brands, this year adding Deloitte Australia and the U.S Department of Commerce. The appointment of Burton matches the strength of this unprecedented growth, particularly as cloud solutions become more crucial than ever in remaining competitive in the current landscape.
“I am absolutely delighted to welcome Gareth as CEO. When we started the search, we didn’t know that his profile existed: a successful PE-backed SaaS CEO who had previously been a CIO. We are glad that it does, he really understands our purpose and our customers. Full time leadership is critically important for companies, now Gareth is in place I will step back and re-add non to my role of Exec Chairman. I want to thank the whole team at Orbus, particularly the leadership team, for really stepping up and keeping the business powering toward its 2022 goals.” Adam Hale, Executive Chairman at Orbus Software
