Solidatus adds two major senior roles to support significant global expansion

London, UK 17 June, 2021 – Today, Solidatus, the leading data management technology firm, announces two new significant senior appointments, supporting its recent accelerated growth and fuelling further global expansion. 

David Northmore joins in the new role of Vice President of Sales, following eight years as Area VP at MarkLogic. David’s extensive experience spans 25 years in the data industry, having held senior management roles at HP Software, Computer Associates and EMC Documentum. His role at Solidatus will focus on developing new processes and scaling the team as the business expands both domestically and overseas, while maintaining its established reputation for fuelling positive client outcomes. 

Chris Crang joins in a similarly newly created role as Vice President of Marketing. He will be focusing on developing and driving the Solidatus brand as the go-to provider of data management solutions. Chris previously held roles as the Head of Corporate Marketing at Worldpay UK, where he established their marketing function for enterprise business and saw the company through to IPO. Chris has also served as Director of Customer Marketing and Strategy at American Express and held management and leadership roles for over 15 years in both UK and multinational organisations.

Both roles will work in partnership, and report into Solidatus’ co-founder, Philip Dutton. This expansion of the leadership structure marks a pivotal time in the company’s history as it quickly expands internationally. The new senior hires follow a landmark year for Solidatus, following its successful Series A funding round and a 400% growth in employees. Its continued investment into senior recruitment and rapid business expansion reinforces its leading position delivering innovative data management strategies for businesses around the world.

Philip Dutton, co-founder of Solidatus, said, “These hires mark an inflection point in our evolution, as we continue to rapidly scale and expand into new territories following our most successful year to date. Attracting the talents of David and Chris reinforces our ambition and commitment to meet the on-going complex needs of clients, as the chosen data management tool for regulated and data-rich organisations. David and Chris both have a firm belief in the transformative difference we can make for our clients, and their combined exceptional expertise make them the perfect fit to drive Solidatus into the next phases of our journey.”

David Northmore, VP of Sales at Solidatus comments, “I have a long-term affinity for Solidatus, having worked with several of its clients and partners throughout my career. We have built an enviable reputation for delivering value to our clients time and time again. Our rapid growth is a testament to this and our singular focus on positive customer outcomes will remain at the heart of everything we do.”

Chris Crang, VP of Marketing at Solidatus, said, “Solidatus’ ability to fundamentally reimagine how data can be used attracted me to the role, as fresh approaches like theirs are so vital to businesses facing complex data burdens. The team has done an exceptional job in getting the brand to where it is today, and Solidatus now stands at an exciting point in its development. As we enter this next phase of growth, I look forward to developing the Solidatus story as market needs evolve, underlining our unique ability to solve complex data problems.”
