Salmat CIO to drive IT transformation

 

Three divisions become one.

Incoming Salmat chief information officer David Hackshall has been tasked with developing a unified approach to IT across the company's three divisions.

Hackshall was appointed group CIO today, replacing Aaron Panozza who left back in May.

Salmat chief Grant Harrond said Hackshall's appointment was "part of a wider transformation already occurring within the organisation, in which Salmat's various parts are being brought together to operate as one.

"We are currently undergoing major transformation in the organisation and David will play a leading role in shaping the strategic direction of the Salmat Group's technology function," Grant said.

"As the company has continued to grow, so too have the complexities of our technology footprint, and the dynamic of our organisation.

"Salmat is a business with a lot of different parts which we have worked over the past twelve months to bring together under one brand, making the company more customer-interfacing and better understood."

Prior to Salmat, Hackshall was the global CIO with Babcock and Brown. He held a similar role with Staging Connections and has also worked on logistics giant Patrick Corporation's IT transformation.

Salmat's three divisions are customer contact solutions, targeted media solutions and business process outsourcing.
