Software development experts ClearPoint have announced plans to strengthen their governance structures by putting dedicated executive leadership in place. Effective from 1 April John Quirk and Helen Anderson will be appointed to the ClearPoint Board of Directors, alongside ClearPoint Founders Phil Pietersen and Bain Hollister who will provide best practice governance and continue to drive the business forward.
As part of the changes, the newly appointed Board will recruit a new CEO to take over the reins from current CEO Phil Pietersen, who has opted to focus on his role as CEO of ClearPoint’s sister company AlphaCert Labs. Phil will remain in his capacity as CEO of ClearPoint until an official appointment has been made. Bain will continue in his role as Chief Technology Officer for ClearPoint.
The move to enhance ClearPoint’s governance structure follows a strong company performance in FY16, in which ClearPoint achieved 35% growth.
It is also driven by the growing success of ClearPoint’s sister company AlphaCert Labs, which is capitalising on a niche in the Investment Management market with large recognised brands actively testing their AlphaCert platform and many others forming a queue. This has opened a window of opportunity for AlphaCert Labs to accelerate growth in Australia and globally.
Founded in 2007 by Phil Pietersen and Bain Hollister, ClearPoint has grown rapidly over 170 people, with offices in Auckland, Wellington, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
Phil Pietersen is excited by the changes and says the move will allow for continued rapid expansion of both companies.
