Putting the band back together
1st Software’s original founders are working together again at Sammedia.
Sammedia are delighted to announce that Rory Curran, the joint founder, of 1st Software with Mik Cons has joined the board of Sammedia as a non-executive director. Jon Buxton, 1st's third founding partner has taken on a full-time role with the company. This follows the successful management buy-out last year of Sammedia by Mik Cons and the existing management team which includes Tessa Lee, Chris Coombes and Sim Sangha.
Rory Curran comments, “I am really looking forward to working with the 1st team again. I have been very impressed with Sammedia’s vision and products which enable advisers to fully utilise the web as a channel to enhance service to clients. The company has recently won a number of significant new enterprise accounts and I hope my experience will help the Board and management team to build and exploit the great potential of the company and the new technology it is bringing to the market”.
Mik Cons, CEO of Sammedia, comments “We’re putting the band back together. Most of Sammedia have worked together before and we know from our past experience that we are capable of making a great impact on our marketplace. It’s a lot of fun to be working with great people to bring managed change to our industry which has gone through such upheaval over the last few decades. Given the recent pension changes I’m not sure there’s been a more exciting time to be in the industry. The opportunity to bring advice to more people is what drives us. Clients are ready for their advisers to use the web as an integral part of their relationship and expect them to do so. We enable this.”
