Innovative Chartered Accountancy firm, Mitten Clarke, welcome accomplished technology leader, Dave Roberts, to the Board as a Non-Executive Director.

With over 20 years IT experience leading large technology teams, and previously a Group CIO at a £3billion turnover payment and fleet services company, Dave is widely acknowledged as a top technology talent. In 2019 alone, he was listed as number 3 in the CIO 100, awarded Top Technology Executive to Watch by HMG Strategy and included in the Hall of Fame by Cybersecurity Observatory, recognising him as one of the most transformative CIOs in the UK and a senior global Cybersecurity leader. The appointment demonstrates Mitten Clarke’s commitment to boosting future growth and further strengthens the dynamic of the Board.

“Never before has technology proven so fundamental to business. Effectively and securely communicating with our business partners and clients is at the very core of what we do,” remarked Operations Director, James Beardmore.

“Dave’s high-level strategic innovations will be a fantastic asset as we make fast-paced technology advances, delivering an exceptionally slick and efficient customer experience. This will put us at the forefront of our industry.”

James adds, “Mitten Clarke is so much more than an accountancy firm. The backgrounds of our senior team extend widely beyond finance, to law, operations, marketing, culture and now high level, strategic information technology. We work in partnership with clients, immerse ourselves in their business and advise from a commercial viewpoint. We are ambitious for them, and together, we can achieve great things.”

Joining in November, Dave already has plans to transform the technological approach at Mitten Clarke, positively impacting the client experience from the off.

“It’s an exciting time to be joining the Mitten Clarke Board, as we accelerate the business’ growth trajectory. I’m looking forward to steering initiatives as we invest in robust and dependable technology, with a sharp focus on the requirements of our clients. It’s fantastic to be part of such a dynamic team,” added Dave.
