Network services disruptor Xalient hires new Chief Financial Officer to fuel global growth

Xalient Group today announced that Andrew Goldwater has joined as Chief Financial Officer, strengthening its global leadership team as the Company moves into the next phase of rapid growth.

A Chartered Accountant by background, Andrew brings a wealth of experience in the sector, having previously served as CFO of a number of companies in the technology and managed services sector, including most recently, M247 and Onyx Group. In the new role Andrew will leverage his commercial and financial acumen and experience in business planning, investment strategies, international development and M&A to help drive Xalient’s long-term profitable growth.

Andrew commented: “Xalient’s value proposition, with long-term, strategic customer partnerships at its core, is something that aligns very much with my background and strengths. It’s clear that a lot of amazing work has gone into strategic focus, continuous innovation and customer experience over the last few years, as evidenced by an excellent client portfolio of global brands and industry awards.”

“I am excited to be joining the Company because I see huge future potential for Xalient in this fast-growing market. The enthusiasm, professionalism and friendliness of the Xalient team made the decision to join their growth journey an easy one for me," he added.

Sherry Vaswani, Founder & CEO at Xalient, commented: “I am delighted to welcome Andrew to the Xalient Group board and team. His skills and experience will be of great benefit to the organisation as we set out to deliver the next phase of our strategy and growth. It’s fantastic to add his expertise to our leadership team and I am very much looking forward to working with him.”

Xalient, based in London, Leeds, and Chicago, counts Kellogg’s, Hamleys, WPP, DWF and Keurig Dr Pepper among its clients. It was established just six years ago to disrupt the traditional markets for secure networking, taking advantage of the huge shift to cloud technology that has created high demand for flexible, cost-effective global connectivity and protection against increasingly complex cyber threats. The pandemic has served to accelerate demand for the Company’s services as enterprises seek new ways to secure remote access to their systems, increase collaboration on a global scale and, above all, protect their businesses.
