EYE Moves: Commify appoints Richard Hanscott as CEO

Enterprise messaging firm, Commify, has appointed Richard Hanscott as Chief Executive Officer.

Hanscott’s most recent role was CEO of Yell where he joined in 2011, leading a successful transformation of the business to a provider of managed digital marketing services for local businesses. Prior to this, Hanscott spent 13 years in the mobile industry with NEC and Orange, delivering growth in both consumer and B2B markets.

Hanscott will start the role with immediate effect, taking over from Tom Boucher who, as Interim CEO, has led the organisation following the resignation, due to health reasons, of previous CEO, Geoff Love. Boucher will continue to serve Commify on the Board in a non-executive capacity.

We sought someone with a proven track record in helping businesses achieve their potential; who can develop and articulate a customer-centric strategy and motivate a global team, to support shared goals. Richard is an outstanding leader who, with his experience in telecommunications and delivering value for SMEs, is primed to accelerate Commify’s growth.

Carla Cico, Chair of the Board
