Finance and Executive Leadership Team changes

We’ve made some changes to the global Leadership and Finance teams at Gentrack.  Some changes are interim, and some are new roles, but all have been made to ensure we have the skills and experience essential to our continued transformation and the delivery of our agreed strategy.  We’ve introduced an interim Executive Leadership structure and made new Finance appointments; learn more about the members of the team below or visit our Investors pages for more information.
