Nick Smee – CEO
I have always been interested in, and worked for, technology businesses that provide disruptive technology to aid customers in their drive for improvement. When I joined Yotta in 2010, I saw a great deal of potential in the company, its staff and the future challenges that lay ahead in the market.
The potential is being realised and I remain extremely excited about the influential role Yotta can play in the global market. Much of that potential will be realised by our ability to be positively differentiated and ambitious; these factors are a clear focus in my role within the business.
Jessica Dye – Director of Marketing
With a career spanning over 20 years, I have witnessed a huge shift in customer and buyer behaviour and this is one of the reasons why marketing is such an exciting place to be right now, especially in an organisation like Yotta.
I have worked in various senior roles across a number of technology markets including telecoms, consultancy, big data and SaaS and it is this experience which has had a big impact on my passion for all things marketing.
My role at Yotta is to illustrate the true value our solutions can bring to our customers and deliver relevant, yet creative marketing to a global market. Outside of work my focus is my family – going for dog walks, refining my Italian culinary skills and running the odd 5k now and then.
Manish Jethwa – CTO & Head of Product
I started my working life at Yotta’s sister company, Vicon, just after finishing my PhD at MIT. I’ve now spent over 10 years at Yotta working on the building of survey vehicles, data processing and most recently developing new software applications such as Horizons.
In addition to my interests in design and technology, I relish the outdoors, and have particularly enjoyed a momentous trek to the summit of Kilimanjaro.
David Deakin – Finance Director
I qualified as a Chartered Certified Accountant in 1996 and subsequently spent 9 years working for AIM listed Computer Software Group plc, before joining Yotta in 2008. My focus and that of my team is on the financial control and growth of this unique business as we enter into an exciting new chapter of expansion.
I enjoy playing as well as watching football and cricket, although the sporting and dancing activities of my two young children take up most of my time.
Phil Oldbury – Director of Customer Services
After an early career within utility engineering and IT management, I have spent the last 15 years in technology and SaaS business serving Retail, SME and Corporate customers. During this time I have had a variety of senior operational and business improvement roles which have all had a strong focus on the customer experience.
My role at Yotta is to deliver absolute focus to all aspects of our post-sales consultancy, delivery and support activity, ensuring outstanding customer journeys and unrivalled value for money for our customers.
Outside of work, my time is spent with my family and our much loved dog, with any spare moments devoted to my love of music and in particular, playing the guitar with a local blues band.
Gary Woodcock – Director of Sales
During my 27 year software sales career, I have worked for major software organisations like Oracle to small start-up companies. I have also owned and sold my own software business.
I’m super excited with the potential Yotta’s SaaS services to offer both our existing customers and the new ones about to join us.
Away from work, I enjoy rugby, being with my family, and walking our dog.
