TMD Reorganises Senior Management

News Image
TMD has announced that it is undertaking a positive refocusing of its senior management team, with the company's founder and existing directors taking on new roles.

Founder Tony Taylor now becomes Executive Chairman of the company, and in this role he will focus on strategic growth and relationships with customers to ensure they are served by the best technology and implementation services.

Carlton Smith, current Chief Product Officer, takes over as CEO. He will be responsible for the day-to-day running of the company.

Tony Taylor said: "Technologically, I believe we are the best in the world. Our workflow engine is the best on the market by far; our latest software platform Mediaflex-UMS is winning major clients; and our cloud offering is recognised as providing real operational and economic benefits for practical implementations.

"With all this happening, and customers all over the world, it was time to refocus our top team. Carlton has been with TMD almost from the start, and through his work on some of our biggest projects, he has an unrivalled understanding of what real-world users need when managing and processing their digital and physical assets. As CEO, he is going to be driving the company forward, freeing me to take the strategic overview, ensuring we remain the strongest solutions in the market."

As CEO, Carlton will strengthen the executive and operational management teams, working closely with Justin Elkerton as COO and Jon Maynard as CTO. Paul Wilkins joins the operational team, taking on product management in his role as Director of Solutions and Marketing, and Alex Sibilev continues as Chief Architect.

"We are already successful in Europe, North America and the Asia-Pacific region," added Smith. "We have offices in the USA and Australia as well as the UK. These centres allow us to get closer to the market, and ensure we are ideally placed to drive the business forward not only geographically, but into related markets too. This reorganisation means our top team – who really understand what we are doing – stay close to the business, the technology, and most important, our customers."
