Keysource, the data centre design, build, maintenance and management specialist, has made two board level appointments to support its ongoing growth and ambitious business strategy. Jon Barton has been appointed as Financial Director and Paula Mitchell as HR Director.
Jon will be responsible for developing Keysource’s commercial propositions to support its approach to transparency and ensure customers are provided with the best and most appropriate solutions. He will lead all financial aspects of the business, implementing processes and procedures designed to enhance accountability, forecasting and accuracy within the company.
He joins Keysource with a wealth of board level experience in growing technology companies, having spent the last four years as Director of Financial Reporting and Control at Imtech ICT. Prior to this Jon spent five years as Group Finance Director of REAL Solutions Group.
Paula will be responsible for the design and implementation of an HR strategy that builds capability to support and deliver company change, as well leading Keysource’s training and development programme. She was previously HR Director for Moneycorp, a leading foreign exchange broker where she was successful in shaping and delivering an industry recognised HR and organisation design function.
Paula possesses the ability to bring together the required corporate structure and understanding of a medium sized culture, to recruit, retain and develop top talent. Although a generalist in HR, she specialises in training and development, change management and employee engagement and takes a metric driven approach to demonstrate value added HR.
Mike West, Managing Director of Keysource commented: “Jon and Paula bring a wealth of experience to our business and support our continued growth within the marketplace. The appointments are the latest steps to ensure we have the correct team in place to drive the company forward on our journey to becoming the leader in our industry.”
