As part of its growth strategy Blackbay, provider of real-time enterprise mobility solutions, has appointed Nigel Doust as its new CEO. Avi Azulai, Blackbays Chairman, said of the appointment: Despite the prevailing economic climate, Blackbay is experiencing an increase in year-on-year revenue growth. Our strong financial position and excellent pipeline of potential customers, means that now is absolutely the right time to drive the company to the next level of its development, establishing Blackbay as one of the leading enterprise mobility solution experts within the field service, postal and transport and logistics sectors. Nigel is the right person to propel Blackbay forward into a market leading position.
Doust will take up his position as Blackbays CEO in early September and joins the company fresh from his position as Vice President at Sybase where he managed and led the Sybase enterprise mobility business in Europe. Previously, Doust was VP Europe for mobile specialist Pointsec where he drove significant market growth. Doust also served as Vice President World Wide Mobility for Extended Systems, another mobility specialist software company. Again he grew the global business and was instrumental in the sale of Extended Systems to Sybase.
Nigel brings with him extensive experience of enterprise mobility solutions and strong relationships within the market, continued Azulai. Importantly for us, Nigel has already displayed outstanding leadership qualities, combined with the ability to continually strengthen and enhance relationships with existing customers and drive revenue from new customers, and new markets.
My position at Blackbay provides me with a fantastic opportunity to take a fast growing company to the top of its market, said Doust. Initially, my focus will be on continuing Blackbays commitment to deliver market leading levels of service and support to our existing customers, driving sales, and expanding the companys operations within the North American enterprise mobility solutions space.
Doust also plans to work closely with Blackbays R&D team to drive investment to further increase the features and functionality of the companys field service, postal and transport and logistics solutions. It is increasingly important that Blackbay is able to deliver innovative, highly scalable and integrated solutions which support the needs of our current customers and those of new customers, across multiple platforms, added Doust.
With Nigel at the helm, Blackbay will be in the best possible position to grow our enterprise mobility solutions market share and to exceed our revenue expectations, concluded Azulai.
