HR-tech company DBLX has brought in former Amazon and bet365 head, Dan Macklin as Chief Technical Officer (CTO).
Dan Macklin was part of the senior team at Amazon Web Services and before that he was Head of Applied Innovation at Lloyds Bank and Head of R&D at bet365.
DBLX have hired him to accelerate its innovation and delivery strategy.
Dan will report directly to CEO Gareth Mobley and will sit on the organisation’s executive board where he will lead the MCG / DBLX tech strategy with a particular focus on innovation.
Dan comments: “I’m absolutely delighted to be joining MCG and DBLX, a company that really wants to do things differently and disrupt the HR-tech industry. I have a passion for building products that help people and teams grow, so am looking forward to bringing some large-tech capabilities to a smaller company that is a pioneer in this space. I have craved a move like this for some time and can’t wait to get started.”
Macklin joined DBLX at the start of April, at an exciting time for the business which has seen significant growth over the past year.
