BigChange appoints US technology leader to board
Leeds-based BigChange, the mobile workforce management platform, today announced the appointment of Mike Profit as a non-executive director.
Mike will provide strategic guidance to BigChange’s product and operational activities, and advise the company as it expands into new markets.
Based in Princeton, New Jersey, Mike brings more than 25 years of product and technology leadership experience gained at US-headquartered startups and blue-chip companies to BigChange’s board. He was part of the leadership team that built WorkWave, a field service management software provider, prior to its acquisition by IFS in 2017.
Mike’s appointment follows those of Richard Warley as Chairman and Nick Gregory as Chief Marketing Officer at BigChange, and a £100m investment in the company by Great Hill Partners to drive innovation and expansion into new sectors and territories.
Mike Profit comments: “BigChange has established itself as a market leader for SME customers in several key sectors and is perfectly poised to expand in the UK and internationally. I am honoured to join BigChange’s board and be part of its innovation and growth strategies.”
Martin Port, BigChange founder and CEO, comments: “It’s fantastic to appoint someone of Mike’s stature to BigChange’s management team. His experience building field service management and Software-as-a-Service businesses is hugely valuable for informing our technology strategy and achieving our global ambitions.”
1,500 organisations across a wide range of sectors use BigChange’s field service management platform for job scheduling, customer invoicing and payments automation, mobile workforce management and customer engagement. Customers include Sunbelt Rentals, Silentnight, Recycling Lives, HSS and EDF.
