Contino Appoints New Global CEO to Guide Expansion in 2020
Contino is pleased to announce that Seb Bulpin has been appointed to the position of Global CEO.
Seb is one of Contino’s longest-serving employees, having most recently served as Global SVP of Sales and Managing Director of the EMEA business.
Seb’s unique knowledge and experience of both cloud and Contino make him the natural choice for Global CEO. His appointment will help ensure that Contino maintains its momentum within the market and continues to grow.
Contino is in an excellent position to leverage its unique operating model and strong brand identity to grow globally both in terms of revenue and headcount. The company is also fortunate to be backed by the wider support and resources of Cognizant, who acquired the business in 2019.
Michael Chalmers, VP of Sales (EMEA), will step into the position of Managing Director for the region. During his three-year tenure, Michael has led sales in both the US and EMEA, while contributing to most areas of the wider EMEA business. Co-founders Benjamin Wootton and Matt Farmer have decided to step away from the business to spend more time with their families after six years building Contino.
Seb Bulpin commented: “I’m thrilled to take this opportunity to lead Contino into the next chapter of its journey and fulfilling our mission to provide measurable, market-leading outcomes for our clients. Our world-class team is delivering huge transformation in regulated enterprises, generating experience and IP that really sets us apart in the market. We are leveraging our core skills in DevOps and public cloud, while broadening into cloud-native software and data analytics, to enable market-defining transformational change.”
Brian Humphries, Cognizant CEO, stated: “We are excited to have Seb leading Contino. He brings deep knowledge in building markets, delivering excellence and leading high-performing teams that support enterprises on their transformation journey. Contino is well-positioned to capitalize on the market opportunity that exists as enterprise organisations seek partners to deliver rapid change on a global scale.”
