GrowthOps chief executive officer, Paul Mansfield said of Thomson’s appointment: “Grant brings extensive enterprise experience to the company. He is also an entrepreneur at heart, having co-founded numerous startups, in addition to mentoring and advising many others across the technology industry.”

Thomson added: “For most of my career, I’ve operated at the intersection of business and technology. I want to enable clients of all sizes to use technology to solve problems, transform and scale.

“Now, as part of GrowthOps, I can do that at the next level, working alongside best-in-class specialists in a single company.”

GrowthOps have also lured key members of Accenture’s Salesforce Einstein Analytics team which moved to the consulting firm with its acquisition of Cloud Sherpas in 2015.

Managing director, Phillip Kingston said about the new analytics team: “John, Robert, Kylie and Robert are global leaders in their field. They’re a crack team, with a strong entrepreneurial mindset, that’s a great fit for GrowthOps and our clients.”

“The Salesforce Einstein Analytics platform, combined with AI, is transforming customer experience. By harnessing the power of AI and Einstein, the team is embedding predictions and recommendations directly into the interfaces used by sales, service and marketing teams every single day. This helps augment workflow, drive meaningful customer discussions, and most importantly, will help our clients grow.”

“The Einstein capability is also an important pillar in GrowthOps’ cloud strategy as the company capitalises on the growing demand for cloud services, in addition to further strengthening our relationship with Salesforce.”

Joining GrowthOps from Accenture are: Global lead, John Cosgrove; Discovery & Creative Lead, Kylie Long; Technical Lead, Robert Houston; and Functional & Governance Lead, Robert Rymer. This team together previously led Accenture’s global Salesforce Einstein Analytics offering.
