Friend MTS has appointed the former CEO of Alba plc as the new chair of its board of directors.
Daniel Harris takes over the role from Michael Joseph, who had held the role following the investment by private equity firm NorthEdge in Friend MTS in September 2022.
Harris has been involved in a number of sports and technology companies. In addition to a 30-year career in technology, he also sits on the board of WH Holding Ltd, the parent company of West Ham Utd as a non-executive director.
“I am thrilled to be joining as chair of Friend MTS, particularly at such a pivotal time for the company and wider industry,” says Daniel. “Friend MTS has a proven track record, an impressive customer base and a genuinely innovative portfolio, and is led by some of the brightest minds in the industry; this represents an optimal recipe for success, and I am excited to join the team and look forward to building a bright future together.”
“We’re delighted to welcome Daniel to the Friend MTS board,” added Jonathan Friend, chief product officer at Friend MTS. “His corporate knowledge and experience at the most senior level across industries critical to our core activities will enable him to provide expert advice and guidance, and we’re excited to see where this next chapter in the Friend MTS story leads.”
Joseph will remain on the board as a non-executive director.
