Elona Mortimer-Zhika, CEO of IRIS Software Group, says, “Chris’s great track record of developing and managing highly successful sales organisations, which  turn successful business relationships into long-term partnerships, will play a key role in helping our customers benefit from the IRIS portfolio of products and services in the years ahead.

“The world is now changing faster than ever before and businesses both at home and abroad are looking for a responsive and trusted partner to help them meet the changing market landscape. I look forward to bringing my years of experience to the role and playing my part in supporting IRIS Software Group’s continued success.”
