Multi-channel order and payment specialist QikServe has today (Tuesday, 22 August) announced the appointment of Craneware co-founder Gordon Craig as a permanent Board member to represent investors Par Equity and Equity Gap.
At Edinburgh-based Craneware, which is thought to be the healthcare market leader in automated value cycle solutions, Craig has held positions including Chief Technical Officer and President of US Operations – heading up the firm’s product engineering efforts and its rise to become a leading SaaS (software as a service) provider in its sector.
While continuing to work with Craneware in an advisory capacity, Craig is now also involved in a number of high-growth technology businesses across a range of sectors, including QikServe and snap40.
QikServe Co-founder and CEO Daniel Rodgers said: “Gordon’s experience in driving the development of a market-leading product, coupled with his success in building a U.S. business makes him a phenomenal source of valuable knowledge and insight. We are delighted to welcome him to our Board and look forward to tapping into his expertise to help accelerate our global growth.”
Craig said: “I’m thrilled to join the team at QikServe – a company that has already done an incredible job by fostering relationships with the key players in its target markets. It’s very exciting to be able to be part of the next stage of this company’s growth, which I am confident will see it reach new heights on a global scale.”
