Coventry, England: i-nexus Global plc (AIM: INX), a provider of cloud-based Strategy Execution software solutions for the Global 5000, is pleased to announce the appointment of James Davies as Executive Vice President of Product. As a consequence, James has resigned from his role as Non-executive Director of the Company with immediate effect, stepping into this newly created position. This brings the total number of staff within the Group to 90, representing an increase of 50 per cent. since IPO and remaining in line with the Group’s stated internal investment and expansion strategy.
James is a seasoned software executive with 20 years’ experience working in Silicon Valley, USA. James has held senior leadership roles in three venture capital backed software start-ups, including CEO, CPO and Chairman, and has delivered management consulting services to some of the world’s largest technology companies. In his role as Chief Product Officer he will be tasked with building upon i-nexus’ early product leadership position in cloud strategy execution software.
The search for James’ Board replacement has commenced and the Company intends to strengthen the Board with the appointment of an additional non-executive director in due course.
Simon Crowther, Chief Executive, commented: “We are absolutely delighted that someone of James’ calibre has agreed to join i-nexus in an executive capacity. His advice during the build-up and successful execution of our IPO was invaluable and I am confident that in his hands the vision for our enterprise-grade strategy execution software platform will be successfully implemented.”

I have witnessed the passion of the team first-hand and the value they bring to their customers and am looking forward to helping take i-nexus into its next stage of growth.”
