DeltaNet International, a Loughborough-based eLearning provider of compliance, health and safety and performance training solutions, has made two new appointments to its senior leadership team to help drive business growth.
Jonathan Smith joins as the Chief Commercial Officer (CCO) and Stuart Taylor as the Financial Controller; both roles are new positions within the company, amid its plans to expand.
Smith will lead the organisation’s commercial strategy to increase revenue and leverage the route to market, as well as cross-selling opportunities within Marlowe PLC. Overseeing sales and marketing, he will focus on customer success, building the DeltaNet International brand and value proposition.
With more than 20 years’ experience in sales, Smith brings with him a wealth of knowledge in growing SaaS-based offerings, working on global and enterprise accounts, and sales leadership. He spent the last seven years in HR tech and has worked in large corporates and start-up organisations across various sectors including eLearning, IoT, FMCG, and legal technology. Prior to joining DeltaNet International, Smith was Head of UK Sales at Thomas International, a global talent assessment platform provider.
“Following the recent acquisition by Marlowe PLC, DeltaNet International is at an important milestone,” said Jonathan Smith, CCO at DeltaNet International. “I am thrilled to join the company on this exciting journey, working with the Senior Leadership team to realise the huge opportunities to drive revenue and achieve market leadership.”
Taylor will take over DeltaNet’s financial duties and act as a Financial Business Partner supporting all business functions, reporting to the Managing Director and Marlowe PLC. Controlling the organisation’s finances, he will focus on introducing new processes besides improving the quality of financial information and understanding in the business.
With over 18 years’ experience in finance and as a Chartered Management Accountant, Taylor brings significant financial knowledge to support the company transition into its next phase. He spent the last ten years leading finance teams in small-to-medium enterprises. Before joining DeltaNet International, Taylor was the Head of Finance at 2OC, a project development business that built and managed a renewable power station.
“I am looking forward to leading the financial operations at DeltaNet. Joining a small company with big aspirations means that I will be able to support and facilitate that growth,” said Stuart Taylor, Financial Controller at DeltaNet International. “It’s an exciting time, and I want to add value by providing high-quality commercial finance support and make DeltaNet’s financial operations a more streamlined and smoother process ready for growth.”
“We are delighted to bolster our leadership team with experts in their respective fields who will strengthen the core of our organisation and ensure we are better placed to service current and future eLearning customers,” said Darren Hockley, Managing Director at DeltaNet International. “Jonathan and Stuart both bring expertise to our company that can support our visions to accelerate growth and increase our market share. This is an exciting time for us.”
