£15m target turnover for CloudM with new CPO

Manchester-based cloud software specialist CloudM has promoted Gary Bennion to Chief Product Officer as part of its ambitions to grow turnover to £15 million in the next three years. 

CloudM is the cloud migration and management arm of Cloud Technology Solutions. It is responsible for developing a proprietary suite of software products including cloud migration and management tools - CloudMigrator and CloudManager.

The newly created chief product officer role is the first on CTS’ board with an exclusive focus on CloudM’s expansion. 

Gary joined CTS in April 2017 as product director and has been responsible for the strategic direction and delivery of products across the business.

His promotion is part of ambitions to more than double CloudM’s turnover in each of the next three years and follows the launch of its CloudManager product on Microsoft’s cloud platform earlier this year, to complement its established Google based product.

Gary said: “We are aiming to grow our CloudM arm into a £15 million turnover business in the next three years and we’ve made great progress against this ambition so far in 2019. 

“CloudM’s proposition is all about making it easier for clients to transition to the cloud and, beyond this, helping them ensure they reap its benefits. This means offering a compelling cloud migration product and, crucially, providing clients with ongoing support for their data management requirements once they’ve made the switch to the cloud.

“Being able to offer this capability globally on a multi-cloud basis is a key part of our growth strategy. The recent launch of our CloudManager product on Microsoft is integral to this and, along with our strong relationship with Google, is bringing forward new opportunities with a greater number of clients.”

James Doggart, CEO of CTS, said: “Gary’s appointment comes at a time when we see huge potential for CloudM to expand its market share even further. CloudM has already helped more than ten million users in 83 different countries migrate to the cloud and having a board member dedicated to this is a natural progression of this success.”
