We're pleased to announce that Calligo, the world’s first managed data services provider, has appointed Mark Hickman as Chief Operations Officer.

 

Mark will be responsible for overseeing and implementing Calligo’s strategic plan and delivering exceptional world-class customer service. In particular, Hickman will be helping drive Calligo’s unique portfolio of managed data services – including data privacy, outsourced IT and data insights services – into data-reliant verticals such as financial services, legal, software as a service (SaaS), medical and ecommerce, while ensuring exemplary ongoing delivery of every service line.

 

Mark has over 20 years of executive management experience with roles in sales, marketing, customer service and operations within multi-national technology organizations. Prior to joining Calligo, Mark was Vice President of the Data and Insights division at Tyler Technologies, a global information management services provider for local governments, and COO at WinMagic, a multi-national provider of enterprise-grade data security and encryption solutions.

 

“Mark’s experience in driving sales and service for global businesses solving productivity, security and data privacy issues for organizations of all sizes meant that he was the perfect fit for Calligo.

 

Not only is he a good technical and commercial fit, but he has also been part of driving rapid and multi-territory organic growth, which is a key component of our immediate and long-term strategy. We are convinced that he will have an immediate positive impact on our business.” 

commented Julian Box, Founder & CEO of Calligo.

 

“As a managed data services provider, with a multi-faceted service portfolio plus an unusual mix of valuable skills in both data and its privacy, Calligo is right at the forefront of IT service provision. 

 

While the rest of the MSP industry still takes a ‘technology down’ approach, Calligo aims to build from customers’ data needs upwards, including data privacy, productivity and cost efficiency, and deliver more impactful benefits to its customers as a result. It is a compelling proposition, and with the support of the team’s proven track record and skills, I am looking forward to helping take it to market and deliver excellent service to our customers.”
