Endava appoints former Goldman Sachs Emea CIO Trevor Smith as chairman of the board to support global expansion
Endava announced that Trevor Smith has been appointed the new Chairman of the Board of Directors. Trevor will succeed Mike Kinton who will continue to support Endava as member of its Board after 10 years in the Chairman role, a period that has seen Endava grow into an international business employing over 3,000 people located in offices in North America and Western Europe and delivery centres in Central Europe and Latin America.
Trevor joined the Endava board in 2013 after 27 years at Goldman Sachs where, among other roles, he was CIO for the EMEA region, being responsible for all aspects of technology across EMEA including FICC & equities trading, sales, securities services, research, investment banking, operations and finance, and infrastructure technology.
said 'I am honoured to take on the Chairman role at such an exciting time in Endava's journey. Mike Kinton will be a very tough act to follow but I am delighted he has agreed to stay on as an Independent Director so we will continue to have access to his deep knowledge of Endava and his undoubted wisdom. I look forward to Endava’s further expansion as we continue to partner with our clients in the transformation of their businesses around the globe, and as we replicate our values across our rapidly expanding footprint.
