London, UK, Feb, 2014. Fast-growing HR and payroll technology and outsourcing specialist, Symatrix, today announced it has appointed Ben Crick as chief operations officer (COO).
Ben will be responsible for all aspects of Symatrix' operational delivery including projects, service, IT and business process outsourcing (BPO).
Ben was previously group IT director at the outsourcing company Equiniti, where he held responsibility for the IT applications and infrastructure services across Equiniti Group's major business units.
Announcing the appointment, Paul Gillott, chief executive officer at Symatrix said, "Ben will support our role in enabling our world-class customer base to generate significant value from their Human Capital Management systems. He has a proven track record in managing large teams and delivering numerous significant IT projects. Ben brings with him a wealth of experience achieved through a number of senior management positions, including the German Bank WestLB AG and the software group Misys."
Ben commented: "I am very excited to be joining Symatrix at a time when the economy is recovering and businesses are looking for ways to capitalise on the upturn. During this time, attracting and retaining quality people is vital so companies must have high value business processes in HR, specifically in areas such as recruitment, talent management, payroll, compensation and learning.
"Organisations are looking to not only outsource functions like HR and payroll, but also move the supporting technology platform into the Cloud to drive down costs and also simplify operations through self-service. Based on the Oracle eBusiness and Oracle Fusion HCM platforms, Symatrix helps customers ensure that their data is safe and secure as they capitalise on the business benefits of this new technology."
