George Elliott joins Cooper Software
Cooper Software, the Dunfermline-based systems integration specialist, has announced that George Elliott has been appointed as a Board advisor.
The appointment comes at a strategically important time for Cooper Software who, during the last financial year, saw a growth of 30% in revenue and an 85% growth in profit that was attributed to major business wins with global companies such as Kaefer C&D and Synergy Health.
Frank Cooper, Cooper Software’s founder and Managing Director, commented,
“George’s experience in the software sector is second to none and we believe he will bring much added value to our strategic thinking. Our plans going forward are ambitious in terms of both growth and delivery of our accelerated growth options within our business model.”
Mr Elliott is non-executive chairman of Craneware plc and Cupid plc, both of which are listed on AIM. During the last six years he has been non-executive chairman/director of 11 companies including Kewill plc, the logistics software company, which was listed on the main market of the LSE, Corsair Components Inc based in Fremont, California and Simple Audio Ltd. From 2000 to 2007, Mr Elliott served as CFO at Wolfson Microelectronics plc.
“Cooper Software has built a strong business model and is seeing growth by providing expert software knowledge and product solutions to a broad range of service industries across Europe. Looking ahead, there are a multitude of opportunities for this award-winning Scottish-based company. Having worked with Frank previously, while he was helping install our ERP system at Wolfson, I quickly understood the value that Cooper Software can bring to organisations that are going through large systems change,”
Mr Elliott said.
Now in its ninth year of operation, Cooper Software has quadrupled its client base and tripled its employee level in the last three years, and with a newly-opened office in Manchester it is well positioned to capitalise on growth potential in UK, before expanding further into the European marketplace.
“Our expertise and growing workforce has expanded our product and service range, thus increasing our customer base and resulting in more repeat business,”
added Mr Cooper.
