Welcome our new CTO

We welcome our new CTO on board, Simon Wallington.


The appointment of new CTO, Simon Wallington, is great news for Cloud8’s clients and prospects, as the employee benefits disruptor steps up innovation with a number of senior hires. Simon’s 25 years of experience, particularly in scaling development processes and technology, will no doubt help Cloud8 deliver above and beyond their current offering, streamlining development and improving employee experiences.

Having played a leading role in scaling OVO’s B2B technology to support its growth from ‘challenger’ to the third-largest domestic energy supplier in the UK, Simon’s thinking will allow Cloud8 to launch new areas within their BEAM at Work™ software. With a focus on developing reporting tools and tying in a comprehensive communications arm for clients, Simon’s efforts will help transform the experience for Cloud8 clients.

Simon commented:
“I’m delighted to be joining Cloud8 at such an exciting time and am looking forward to working with Dipa and the team to drive technical excellence and product innovation across the offering.”

Cloud8 Managing Director, Dipa Mistry Kandola said:
“This step forward for us is significant: taking on a full-time CTO is a true mark that we are investing into our tech team by having a leader to help take our platform and people to a scalable model.  Simon is joined by a number of new key recruits over recent months including Quality Assurance, DevOps and Developers. It’s truly an exciting time for us all, as the wider team at C8 has been working hard to get us to where we need to be for the next phase in our growth.”
