Bill Crank, current CEO and executive board member of Clearspan and former President, CEO and executive board member at Dialogic, has an extensive international business development record in cloud-based communications platforms. Clearspan is a divestiture out of Mitel Networks owned by Private Equity Groups Searchlight Capital and Abry Partners.

“We’re delighted to welcome Bill. He joins us at a critical moment in our growth plans” said Paul Sheehan, Managing Director of Codeherent. “We look forward to leaning on his vast experience as we scale our commercial strategy and evolve our cloud management capability in 2021.”

“It is an exciting time to join Codeherent,” said Crank.“ Aided by their investment in 2020, they have developed smart software that solves big problems for enterprises that are actively trying to reduce costs and save time by overhauling cloud management processes.

“I’m looking forward to working closely with Paul and the board to grow a loyal customer base very quickly.”

Commenting on the news, Col Batten, Technology Investment Executive at the Development Bank of Wales said: “This is an excellent non-executive director appointment for Codeherent, further bolstering an already strong board.

“Codeherent spotted a truly disruptive opportunity early on in the emerging ‘Infrastructure as Code’ tech sector. We’re excited to support this ambitious high-growth potential start-up as they seek to expand their reach internationally. We look forward to seeing what Paul, Bill and the Codeherent team do next.”
