We are excited to announce that Simon Lawless and James Lewis have joined Silicon Reef as key members of our senior leadership team as we prepare for a period of growth. Simon will take up the role of Chief Executive Officer, whilst James will head up the sales and marketing divisions in the role of Chief Revenue Officer. Founder and former-CEO Alex Graves will pivot to the role of Chief Visionary Officer.
The news comes following last year’s appointment of Tim Wallis, founder and former-CEO of Content and Code (now Content+Cloud), as Chairman.
Both Simon and James join us with a wealth of knowledge and experience, having worked closely with Tim at Content+Cloud. With a proven track record of successfully leading technology services and solutions teams, their expertise will be vital as we scale the business and cement our position as a leading Microsoft Modern Work Solutions partner, specialising in employee experience.
Founder and new Chief Visionary Officer Alex Graves said,
“I am thrilled to mark this next step in Silicon Reef’s journey. It’s another huge step towards our mission of empowering people to be connected, productive and live a life of balance, and demonstrates our commitment to helping this generation and the next to Work Happy. As one of the co-founders of Silicon Reef, I’m extremely proud to hand the baton of CEO over to someone who I truly believe can help make my vision a reality.”
On joining Silicon Reef, Simon Lawless, CEO, said,
“I’m delighted to be joining Silicon Reef at such an exciting time, and to be trusted to take up the mantle of CEO. We have a fantastic team of talented, driven individuals and I’m looking forward to getting stuck in and helping the business and everyone within it to reach their full potential.”
On what lies ahead for Silicon Reef, James Lewis, CRO, said,
“We have all the right ingredients to do something really special at Silicon Reef. With Work Happy as our core ethos, we can deliver innovative Microsoft solutions that have real impact on the employee experience in a way that no other Microsoft partner is. I’m very excited about the journey ahead.”
