We’ve appointed Charlotte Light as Chief Technology Officer and Tom Bennett as Head of Innovation. The appointments reflect an increase in focus on technology and innovation.
Aztec’s business is first and foremost about our people providing a high touch service to our clients. However, the Group’s introduction of these key strategic appointments recognises that technology and innovation will continue to play an increasingly important role in how that service is delivered over the next few years.
Over the last five years, we’ve strengthened our technology with industry-leading solutions. We recognise that to be a digital and data leader in our field, this is just the foundation. We’re turning our attention towards innovation and using technology to further differentiate our service proposition in anticipation of our clients’ future needs.
Charlotte is a technology transformation leader with a breadth and depth of experience from many different industries, including media, medical, and retail. As CTO for the Aztec Group, she brings a wealth of expertise in technology and change and will drive this crucial agenda as a member of the Executive Board. She joins the Group from Channel 4, where she was Chief Information Officer.
Previously COO at JLL’s UK Investment and Agency businesses, Tom Bennett will identify new ideas and opportunities for existing business and create pure new revenue streams for the Aztec Group in his role as Head of Innovation. His passion lies in developing next generation businesses using technology adoption and value creation.
Edward Moore, CEO, Aztec Group, said:
“We have big plans to provide additional value to our clients through making technology and data work harder. Working with our clients, we are confident we can innovate to drive greater collaboration, insights and intelligent automation. We made the decision to look outside our industry for these two key strategic hires and I am delighted that Charlotte and Tom have joined us, bringing new thinking to what we do.
We have already had some great conversations around the opportunities technology and innovation can play in evolving our industry and l am looking forward to working closely with them both.”
