Fri, 1st Mar 2024

In a move to bolster its senior leadership team, VeUP, an international consortium of industry experts specialised in providing high-performance solutions to start-ups in the realms of technology, Go-To-Market (GTM) approach and finance, has announced the recruitment of Damian Skendrovic as the new General Manager (GM) for the EMEA region.

Before joining VeUP, Skendrovic had an impressive track record in the tech sector. He held the position as CEO at Logicalis, renowned for its specialized services in digital transformation, specifically in the provision of cloud-managed services. Prior to that, he served as the Executive Vice President at NTT Ltd, a global provider of technology and business solutions.

The announcement of Skendrovic’s recruitment comes on the heels of the firm’s recent appointment of Cheryl Powell, who took the helm as the head of HR. Her responsibilities encompass driving and managing the firm's talent management strategy. This executive reshuffling is a clear sign of VeUP’s commitment to strengthening its top brass.

VeUP's relentless efforts have been recognized by the industry in the recent past. The company was awarded the AWS Advanced Tier Services Partner status last year. This acknowledgment is bestowed only upon organizations that have demonstrated exceptional customer experience, possess a team of skilled and certified individuals, and have showcased expertise in AWS consultancy.

In tandem with offering top-rated technology consultation, VeUP also administers a $100m growth fund. This initiative aims to provide financial backing to businesses exhibiting high growth potential.

In his new role, Skendrovic is tasked with leading the rapidly growing European operation of VeUP. His responsibilities include fostering revenue growth, customer retention, and leading the services strategy.

Skendrovic expressed his enthusiasm about joining VeUP, saying, “I’m very excited to be joining such a fast-growing company with big ambitions to unlock growth for the next generation of scale-up firms via the AWS ecosystem. VeUP has a fantastic company culture and a growing team of industry experts, and I look forward to working with my team to take the business to the next level.”

Alexander Dick, Executive Chairman of VeUP, warmly welcomed Skendrovic. He comments, “As we continue our rapid growth trajectory, Damian will bring extensive industry experience, knowledge, and energy to take our business forward. We are very pleased to welcome a seasoned industry expert to our growing management team as we continue to expand our services and geographical reach.”

With the recruitment of business veterans like Skendrovic and Powell, VeUP evidently plans to leverage their skills and experience to fast-track its growth and extend its geographic reach further.
