London, UK (PRWEB UK) 3 November 2011
Intela, a leader in online lead generation and email marketing, is bolstering its aggressive growth plans with the appointment of Toby Harris as Chief Financial Officer.
On joining Intela, Harris says, “I am delighted to join Jim [Mansfield] and the Intela team, given their success to date and ambitious plans for the future. I’m confident that I can help deliver a step change in the company’s financial processes and systems that will optimize Intela’s ability to scale effectively.”
Prior to joining Intela, Harris was CFO at Adapt where he played a key role helping the business double EBITDA over a two-year period despite flat revenues. Within a challenging economic climate, Harris focused on improving working capital management and commercial controls, which enabled the business to maximise operational efficiencies and cash flow. Harris also led the integration of one major acquisition and executed several M+A transactions during his three-and-a-half-year tenure, including ultimately, the successful sale of the business in September 2011.
Harris joins Intela having qualified as an ACA with PWC and subsequently gaining over 10 years of senior finance experience within the financial services, leisure and IT sectors.
Jim Mansfield, Intela Founder and CEO, said he was “excited to have recruited Toby because he’s a top-rated CFO with a track record of successful execution. I’m certain that Toby will help our business grow profitably as we continue to expand globally.”
