C5 appoints a new generation of IT leaders

C5 Alliance Jersey has announced four senior management promotions.

They are part of a restructuring at the tech firm which began in the summer of 2016.

Rob Leader, Group Managing Director of C5 Alliance, said: “It has been fantastic to watch the development of our new generation IT leaders first hand. These passionate individuals have been key to the growth of our business and worked extremely hard to get to where they are today.”

"I see a bright future in our new management team and with their development, I also look forward to seeing the next generation of C5 leaders develop through the company.”

The team members being promoted include Gary Stewart, who is being promoted from Director to Managing Director of the Professional Services Division.

As a qualified accountant with IT expertise, Mr Stewart bridged the gap between the technology and business side of the organisation. In his new role as Managing Director, he will continue to lead the Professional Services division while focusing on the development of C5 Alliance’s succession plans and strategy for the future.

Cindy Jacobs, a Director of Managed Services will be expanding her role to work alongside Mr Stewart as an adviser to the Professional Services Board.

In her role as Director, Ms Jacobs drives strategy for the division and builds close relationships with some of the C5 Alliance Group’s larger clients. Her responsibilities as a new generation leader will include establishing a mentorship programme to nurture the individual skills of team members and developing plans aiming to enhance overall team performance.

Antony Allen, is progressing from Director to Managing Director of the Managed Services Division.  

Since joining the company in 2011, Mr Allen has worked to implement a continual service improvement culture, restructured his team to allow growth, and has been involved in more than 50 promotions. In his new role, Mr Allen will focus on strategic, operational excellence across the Managed Services division, and delivering against financial goals. 

Former Head of HR, Ceri Riddett has been promoted to Director of HR and is currently undertaking the final year of a Masters in Human Resource Management.

She joined C5 Alliance in 2013. As Director of HR, Ms Riddett will work closely with other C5 Directors in both Jersey and Guernsey to ensure HR, talent management and recruitment strategy is delivered across all divisions of the C5 Alliance Group.

These management promotions have followed several other fundamental changes to C5 Alliance over the past year, including the establishment of the new Project Delivery Team and the acquisition of Altius (CI), which expanded the company’s business change offering.
