Cloud8 appoints Dipa Mistry Kandola as Client Strategy Director

Dipa Mistry Kandola has joined the board of directors at Cloud8, the digital employee benefits software company based in the South West.

Dipa takes on the role of Client Strategy Director, responsible for supporting each client’s unique journey towards digital benefits provision using Beam at WorkTM, Cloud8’s software platform. She will also be playing a key role in developing and delivering Cloud8’s ambitious growth plans.

Dipa has had an extensive and varied career in the employee benefits industry. She has worked for many successful employee benefits firms who either have their own platform or have white labeled a third-party solution. Over the last 18 years she has been a buyer and user of employee benefits software, and has worked collaboratively within advisory firms, HR decision-makers and employees on all aspects of online employee benefits.

Ian Rummels, founder and CEO of Cloud8, said, ‘I’m delighted to welcome Dipa to the Cloud8 board. Her breadth of experience means that she fully appreciates the issues facing our wide spectrum of clients, from the largest players to the smallest independent firms. She has a uniquely informed perspective on our technology development, and on our clients’ business challenges. She has a keen focus on ROI, while also wanting to improve employee engagement. I know she will take a tailored approach to client strategy, ensuring each business has exactly what it needs to maximise their digital benefits provision.’

Dipa said, ‘I’m very excited to be joining Cloud8 at such a pivotal time. Incredible growth during the last few months demonstrates the vision and viability of what the business is seeking to achieve. I’ve worked with many employee benefits businesses at their inception, helping them to realise the opportunities inherent in moving their offering online through cloud based / SaaS platforms. I look forward drawing on this experience to help Cloud8 clients modernise their offering, simplify their onboarding and administration, and deliver a better experience for their end-users – HR, employers and employees.’
