Orchard Information Systems has strengthened its board to lead the company’s investment in new products and services.
Managing director Ian Shard has now been joined by Lucy Armstrong as the company’s new non-executive chair and Danny Tobin as its new commercial director. Armstrong is chief executive of The Alchemists, which helps businesses achieve successful growth and Tobin joins from Hargreaves plc. Orchard’s founding director, Peter Hunt, has now retired from the board but will maintain an interest in the business as its major shareholder.
Lucy Armstrong said, “Orchard is in an enviable position in the current uncertain environment. We have profits that we can invest in developing new products and services, we have a large portfolio of clients and partners across the UK, and we have an experienced and forward-thinking workforce.”
