Peter and I are pleased to announce that Julia Gronnow is joining Bytemark as our new Finance Director.
Julia was Finance Director at Yorktest Laboratories for 5 years, building both strategy and a strong finance team while managing the spin-off of two subsidiaries. Previously Julia was the in-house Management Accountant at Gamestation, the national video gaming retail chain founded in York. She helped Gamestation grow from 30 to 350 stores nationwide, built the finance team up from 3 to 25 staff, and oversaw its sale to Game Ltd. in 2007.
Julia’s technical focus and executive experience is a great fit for Bytemark’s expansion, as we’ve always been driven by what we can achieve from a technical standpoint. We’ll need her more than ever as we continue to fill out our YO26 data centre, and onboard more and more users (revenue from our cloud services grew 57% last year, and we added 25% to our user base).
Speaking for the whole board, we’re very much looking forward to working with her.
