NEXTDC (ASX:NXT) CEO, Craig Scroggie, announced the appointment of Paul Jobbins as Chief Financial Officer, and Tanya Mangold as Chief Legal Officer and Company Secretary. Both appointments are effective immediately.
Scroggie said Jobbins would be responsible for the company’s financial strategy and investor relations, and brought to NEXTDC “valuable experience, having previously worked in senior executive roles with several ASX listed companies in Australia and the United Kingdom.”
Prior to joining NEXTDC, Jobbins was most recently Chief Executive Officer at Reverse Corp, where he also held the roles of CFO and Company Secretary and oversaw the IPO of the company on the ASX.
Prior to joining NEXTDC, Tanya Mangold previously worked at a top tier law firm – Clayton Utz - in Australia, and in a previous corporate legal advisory role at the Capricorn Society. She also worked as corporate counsel for large insurance companies in South Africa.
Scroggie said Mangold brought a wealth of commercial experience to NEXTDC, working across areas including corporate advisory matters, shareholder agreements, IPOs, ASIC and ASX matters, tax advice, IT contracts, government procurement and tenders.
“Both Paul and Tanya will play important leadership roles in establishing NEXTDC as the most recognised, connected and trusted data centre brand in the region.”
Scroggie said that, as previously advised in February this year, Robin Khuda had accepted the position of Deputy Chief Executive Officer, and had now also assumed the role of Chief Commercial Officer, responsible for the company's sales and marketing, government & regulatory policy, corporate strategy and mergers and acquisitions functions.
As part of the new executive arrangements, the Board of NEXTDC also announced that that company founder, Bevan Slattery, would move from his position as Executive Director and Deputy Chairman to Non-Executive Director and Deputy Chairman.
NEXTDC Chairman, Roger Clarke, said that the important leadership appointments had allowed the Board to “enhance the company’s corporate governance with Mr Slattery’s moving to a non-executive role,” and had positioned the company well for its next phase of development.
