Amphora continues to add staff including a new CTO, Jeff Carvell, based in its Dubai office who joined Amphora at the beginning of September. Jeff has more than 25 years of experience in senior technology leadership during an international career in Oil & Gas, Mining, Manufacturing and Financial Services. In his new role, he will be accountable for both technology operations and transformation as well as leading business change unrelated to technology, Jeff has a consistent theme throughout his career of applying enabling technology to achieve strategic business outcomes, according to a recent Linkedin announcement. It has also hired other staff in Dubai and elsewhere, David Glasspool told me.
Amphora remains very busy with a client going live this week, and lots of inbound leads. With six new clients to date this year, it is already having a record year, David told me, and four of those new customers are in Dubai where the market seems very active. David expects another new customer shortly. In addition, some existing customers are asking for enhancements and/or expanding their use of the solution. Meanwhile, Amphora is ramping up its marketing and is sponsoring several industry events between now and year end. It also sponsored our own risk report recently issued.
