Dimension Data CEO steps down
Brett Dawson has stepped down as CEO of Dimension Data after 12 years of service. The company today announced the appointment of Jason Goodall, previously group COO, as the new CEO.
Jeremy Ord, executive chairman of the Dimension Data group said, "Brett has delivered extraordinary growth for our company over the last 12 years, quadrupling our revenues to $8 billion, helped us globalise and led our transition into being part of the NTT family."
Dimension Data was acquired by Japanese-owned Nippon Telegraph Telephone (NTT) in 2010, for $3.24 billion.
"Whilst this journey is far from over, I'm extremely grateful for the leadership, passion and energy that Brett has brought to our organisation," says Ord.
Goodall steps into the new role from his current position as group COO, where he has been responsible for the regions and several global functions including sales, marketing, group information services, HR and commercial finance. Goodall has been with Dimension Data for 18 years.
Goodall says, "We see many opportunities for growth across both the Dimension Data group as well as the wider NTT group. I'm excited about the opportunities in front of us, to continue to build our winning culture, to accelerate the ambitions of our clients, our people and the communities we operate in. I'm honoured and thrilled to be stepping up to this opportunity and look forward to working with our clients, partners and employees in the near future."
Goodall is appointed with immediate effect.
