  • Rod Tonna-Barthet appointed as Annodata’s CEO
  • Geoff Slaughter joins company as Annodata’s new Group Sales Director

Annodata, a leading provider of document management and ICT managed services, has made a number of changes to its senior management team to help it achieve its target of becoming a £100million business in 2016. Annodata’s former Group Sales Director, Rod Tonna-Barthet, has assumed the newly-created position of CEO, while Geoff Slaughter has been appointed to the role of Group Sales Director.

Rod has over 27 years of experience in the service provider industry, and held a number of board-level positions in the technology space prior to joining Annodata in 2008. In his role of Group Sales Director, he was directly responsible for the company’s sales strategy and oversaw a significant increase in the company’s revenue. As CEO, Rod’s remit will be to manage overall operations and ensure Annodata’s recent rates of growth are maintained and that future growth is sustainable.

Annodata’s founders and shareholders Andrew Harman and Tim Harman will be focusing their efforts on overseeing the corporate strategy, identifying acquisition targets and new growth opportunities.

Commenting on the changes to the company’s senior management team, Annodata’s Chairman Martin St. Quinton said: “The past financial year has been marked by a number of big changes within the company, not least the acquisitions of Keltec and STS. These changes have presented us with a significant opportunity to grow the business, but to do that in a way that is sustainable, it’s critical that we’ve got the right leadership and management team in place. During his time with the company, Rod has demonstrated very clearly his commitment to the company and his business acumen. I therefore have no doubt that, as newly appointed CEO, he will lead Annodata’s continued success.

“In addition, Geoff Slaughter makes a very welcome addition to the Annodata team. His significant senior sales management experience with Canon puts him in good stead to spearhead Annodata’s advance into new markets as Group Sales Director and help execute our strategy to provide a wider range of services to our existing clients,” he added.

Geoff Slaughter has stepped into the position of Group Sales Director at Annodata. Geoff brings with him a wealth of sector-led sales experience at the enterprise level, and prior to joining Annodata he held a range of senior management roles at Canon. Geoff spent the last five years building the Global Service Division for Canon Europe and was successful in winning new contracts with some of the largest global corporations.
