York tech firm appoints COO, putting growth into gear

Video interviewing software solutions provider, Shortlister, has appointed Paul Dickens as Chief Operating Officer as part of its bold plans for fast-tracked growth.

Encompassing all aspects of the business, Mr Dicken’s role will see him set the framework for strategic expansion at the York-headquartered firm as it steps up operations, including developing the commercial team and ensuring customer success through product direction.

Joining the business from Ganymede — part of the AIM listed RTC group — where he was Operations Director, he brings 18 years of experience in sales, recruitment, technology, and people management, specifically in the digital sector, and has a proven track record of leading businesses through successful rapid growth periods.

David Dewey, CEO at Shortlister, explained: “We’re thrilled to have Paul come on board to help us take the company to the next level. His wealth of experience, passion, and drive for the industry are immediately apparent and I’m sure will add real value.”

“We’re extremely people-focused, taking the view that our colleagues are our real assets, which is why we’re investing heavily in the development of our workforce.”

Mr Dickens added: “I’m very excited to be joining the team at Shortlister. I’ve had a longstanding interest in the technology and market innovation that the firm has defined, and David’s vision for the future is truly inspiring.

“The refreshing and vibrant culture is perfect for technical and commercial innovation, and with a hybrid working model, we have a mix of a fantastic base in York city centre coupled with a remote, flexible working culture.

“In just a short time, it’s become clear that everyone within the business has a voice, and David’s efforts to encourage this practice will be the blueprint of our future success and staff development opportunities.

“It’s a really great time to come on board. I can’t wait to be a part of driving the next stage of growth for both the organisation and the team.”
