BigChange, the mobile workforce management platform, has appointed Richard Warley as its chairman. His appointment follows a £100 million investment in BigChange by private equity firm Great Hill Partners to drive innovation, product development and expansion into new sectors and territories.
BigChange handles job scheduling, customer invoicing and payments automation, mobile workforce management and client engagement for clients including Sunbelt Rentals, Silentnight, Recycling Lives, HSS and EDF.
Warley has 30 years of experience in investment banking, private equity and operational leadership roles at leading technology companies in Europe, Japan and North America. He will support BigChange's leadership team as the company accelerates its expansion plans in the UK and globally.
Warley said: “BigChange is an amazing company with a clear mission and purpose to drive growth and sustainability for its customers and community. It has already transformed the way that over 1,500 organisations manage their mobile workforces with its revolutionary technology platform that streamlines processes, eliminates unnecessary work and reduces the carbon footprint of mobile workforces.”
Martin Port, BigChange founder and CEO, said: “Richard has a wealth of experience and expertise gained leading successful businesses internationally, and his advice and guidance will be invaluable to us as we look to take our transformative workforce management platform to more sectors, across a wider geography.”
