Joining TDPG (The Digital Property Group) as Group CTO

TDPG (The Digital Property Group) have just released a press release announcing that I will be joining them as Group CTO.

It has not been an easy decision but after 3 years at eCommera I have decided to move on.

As I look back I am particularly proud of what my team have achieved

  • Setup, Support, QA, Development, Ops, Professional Services and Product Development departments from scratch.
  • Setup a low cost near-shore operation (55 people) in Sofia, Bulgaria.
  • Grew department from 0 to 40 people in less than 11 months. 85 people as of August 2010.
  • Setup profitable Professional Services Organisation with native, French, Italian, German, Spanish, etc. speakers.
  • Rolled out 10 retailers, including ASDA Direct, in just over 2 years.
  • Secured £5m in second round funding during 2009 recession.
  • Created probably the largest competence of Demandware skills in the world in less than two years.

I wish everybody at eCommera well and hope their business continues to thrive.
