Wednesday, April 1, 2015 - 12:45

Ferranti Computer Systems accelerates the investments in research and development of the MECOMS™ solution to further develop the innovations and the value we bring to our customers and partners. To lead this strategic focus, Tom Van Haute has been appointed as Chief Technology Officer. Tom Van Haute has been working for Ferranti for 20 years in various positions, the previous one being Chief Operations Officer of Ferranti Computer Systems.
The management of the Operations organization will be taken up by Frank Croket in the interim.

A stronger product proposition goes hand in hand with a stronger customer focus. Therefore Ferranti also has strengthened the commercial organization with the appointment of Mark Hurcomb as Chief Commercial Officer and the appointment of Tony Walton as Sales Manager for the United Kingdom.

Mark Hurcomb will be leading Ferranti’s commercial operations across EMEA in combination with the responsibility of Country Manager Ferranti United Kingdom. Mark Hurcomb brings to Ferranti extensive energy- and utilities expertise from past management responsibilities at Logica (now CGI), Regional Management at Wipro, Head of Energy and Utilities Europe at HCL and Vice President EMEA at eMeter Corporation. Before joining Ferranti, Mark was the Sales Director Northern Europe for Oracle Utilities.

Tony Walton held business development responsibilities at Ebiquita Ltd, Equifax Ltd and Gentrack Limited where he worked extensively with energy and water utilities in the UK.
