I am looking forward to working with more of Cobalt’s EMEA customers and being part of such a dynamic company. These are exciting times for Cobalt and the Industry.
London (PRWEB UK) 20 January 2016
Cobalt, the award-winning Business Continuity Solution Provider, continues its global expansion with the appointment of the highly experienced Implementation Manager Darrell Durrant. Darrell joined Cobalt in January to head the EMEA Implementation team.
Darrell has more than seven years’ business continuity experience, which he gained through a variety of challenging positions in the acclaimed European Business Continuity and Critical Communication Platform provider, Vocal. Darrell’s management and project development experience was instrumental during the acquisition of Vocal by Everbridge in 2014, with the migration of clients from iModus to the Everbridge suite.
Darrell’s expertise played a key role in the implementation of Vocal’s iModus platform as part of the Cross-sector Safety and Security Communications partnership’s (CSSC) objective to ensure London stayed safe and secure during the events of 2012; from the lead up to the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations, through to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Under his leadership, his team created and delivered a unique communications platform, bringing London’s public and private sectors together to share information and resources and work in complete partnership for the first time.
Darrell says “I’m genuinely excited to join Cobalt as they expand from their North American operations across EMEA. After working in the critical communication market for a long time and managing over 1000 implementations I’m looking forward to the taking this experience and delivering enterprise wide BC, DRP and IT solutions. The product suite is excellent, and my role as the Implementation Manager is made so much easier by quality products. I am looking forward to working with more of Cobalt’s EMEA customers and being part of such a dynamic company. These are exciting times for Cobalt and the Industry.”
Cobalt has proved itself more than capable of keeping ahead of its competitors and is one of only four companies to have been awarded the honour of entry into the BCI Hall of Fame. The company has extended its global presence by opening its new EMEA office in the UK.
Jean-Francois Plante, Founder and CEO commented “Recruiting Darrell is a real win for Cobalt and our customers. I would think there are very few people in the industry with his level of experience, knowledge and dedication to customer success. The market place itself is ever evolving, and the challenge for those of us providing solutions is to not only keep up with that fast-paced evolution but also to be innovative and ahead of our competitors. Having someone of Darrell’s calibre managing the technical delivery of our products ensures that the customer expectations are not only met but exceeded.”
