Distributed is delighted to announce that following its £5m Series A funding in May and its accelerating explosive growth it has appointed Roger Taylor as its first Chair of the Board to sit alongside its institutional investors Guinness Asset Management, Fuel Ventures and Capita Scaling Partners.
Board level operator, Roger Taylor, joins Distributed with 15 years’ experience of helping technology and service orientated business scale-up within rapid-change UK and international markets from the differing perspectives of CEO and separately Chair. Taylor has a proven track record of helping scale-ups succeed by delivering sales performance and operational scale in excess £100m+ revenue and becoming 300 FTE international organisations while ensuring market-leading product / service and customer excellence to Tier-1 enterprise clients.
Taylor says: “Distributed has already experienced record growth of 500% this year and the robust pipeline shows there is so much more to come in 2022. As the business world undergoes one of the biggest transformations it has ever experienced, Distributed is at the forefront of supporting its customers with an innovative and unique business model, and the best developer talent the world has to offer. As the company seeks to optimally utilse its recent investment, it’s time to scale up with confidence, maintain service excellence and broaden its Elastic Team community, and I am excited to help the management team succeed in doing so.”
Callum Adamson, CEO and Co-founder of Distributed, says: “The evidence speaks for itself, Distributed’s model works. That’s why we are growing exponentially and consistently adding some of the UK’s biggest and most well-known brands to our books. Having Roger on board will be critical to our continued success and we can’t wait to see what he has in store for us.”
