Fireminds appoints Coelho
Vicki Coelho, the former chief executive officer of Logic, is joining Fireminds as its non-executive chairwoman.
The IT company announced the appointment this morning, and said Mrs Coelho will help Fireminds with sales, business development and international growth.
“This is a real coup for Fireminds. Vicki is extremely well respected and has a wealth of experience in the IT sector. Her appointment is a critical one for us as we seek to further expand and develop new products and into new markets,” said Michael Branco, CEO of Fireminds.
“I truly believe that, with Vicki on board, Fireminds will go from strength to strength. This is a very exciting time for the company.
“In addition to helping with company growth, Vicki will have board level responsibilities for governance and strategy of the company. I will continue as CEO and lead executive responsible for day-to-day operations.”
Before working at Logic, Mrs Coelho was general manager of North Rock Communications for 15 years. She is a director for the Electronic Commerce Advisory Board, Technology Leadership Forum, and Dare 2 Be, and is also founder, director and treasurer of Bermuda’s International Women’s Forum.
She is a past director of the Bermuda Chamber of Commerce’s business technology division.
Mrs Coelho will start full-time at Fireminds on January 1, but has already spent some time with the Fireminds team.
She said: “Michael has been at the forefront of many technological innovations in Bermuda and Fireminds has already demonstrated that it is a market leader.
“This is a great opportunity to help a 100 per cent Bermudian-owned firm establish a foothold in international markets.
“I am absolutely delighted to have been asked to take this post and am really looking forward to working closely with Michael and the many talented staff he employs.”
Fireminds, which employs more than 30 people, is an international technology consulting company providing services in web and mobile development, enterprise software development, cloud solutions and IT support. It is the parent company of Premier Tickets.
