Endava plc, a leading next-generation technology service provider, has announced the appointment of Patrick Butcher to its Board of Directors.
Mr. Butcher most recently served as Group Chief Financial Officer of the Headlam Group plc from April 2022 until March 2023. From January 2019 to November 2020, he served as Group Chief Financial Officer at Capita plc. Prior to that, Mr. Butcher served as Chief Financial Officer at various companies, including The Go-Ahead Group plc, Network Rail Limited, the English and Scottish Railway, and Mapeley Limited. Mr. Butcher received his B. Compt. (Hons.) in Accounting and Finance from the University of South Africa and is a qualified Chartered Accountant (South Africa).
“I am pleased to announce Mr. Butcher’s nomination to Endava’s Board of Directors. He is a seasoned CFO, and we believe his deep experience in financial and operational leadership will be critical as Endava continues to expand globally,” said Trevor Smith, Chairman of the Board of Endava.
“I am thrilled to be joining the board of Endava. Endava is a leader in providing next-generation technology services to customers in multiple industries globally. The leadership team at Endava has built a strong business, and I look forward to helping shape the strategy as the company continues with its ambitious expansion goals,” said Mr. Butcher.
Endava also announced today a number of changes to the executive team, effective July 1, 2023, designed to help position the company to achieve its projected growth out to 2030.
Rob Machin, the company’s Chief Operating Officer, is transitioning off the executive team to focus on the internal business transformation program, designed to enable Endava to scale through 2030. Over the past few years, Endava has been shifting to an industry-vertical go-to-market strategy, which is a significant point of differentiation in client engagements. To further accelerate this shift, Julian Bull will be taking over as Chief Operating Officer, responsible for both sales and client delivery across Endava’s industry verticals.
In addition, Matt Cloke has been promoted to the position of Chief Technology Officer, and both he and David Churchill, Endava’s Chief People Officer, who previously reported to Rob Machin, will be joining Endava’s executive team, reporting directly to the Chief Executive Officer.
