Klim said: “We are delighted to welcome Martin to the company and the Executive team. With more than 19 years’ experience in senior finance and operations roles, predominately within the IT and professional services industry sectors, his extensive knowledge and expertise will be a valuable addition to our growing organisation.”

Deda’s most recent position was as Chief Operating Officer (COO) / CFO for leading regional law firm Minter Ellison.
