Future Digital Footprint Ltd announces appointment of new CEO
Future Digital, one of the UK’s leading providers of Internet safeguarding and security software and solutions for the Schools sector, has announced the appointment of Dominik Wellmann as the company’s CEO with immediate effect.
Building on the developments to date and in recognition of the significant growth potential both in the overseas Schools markets as well as the Corporate and other sectors, the Board have appointed Dominik with the aim of fully capitalising these opportunities, driving new product development activities and embedding structures and processes appropriate to the security needs of our clients.
Major General Walter Courage (Chairman of the Board) said, 'Whilst the company’s software and services have a significant presence in the UK education market, Dominik’s international education experience will help drive our sales efforts in Australia and the Middle East. His background and understanding of the outsourcing sectors will be critical as we develop initiatives in the corporate sector as well as create the internal systems to support current and future security products.'
Ellie Puddle (President & Founder) remarked, ‘I am thrilled Dominik has joined Future Digital. This is an exciting time for the business and he has joined the team to lead the company to the next stage in our growth and development, both in the U.K. and Overseas. His wealth of business knowledge and experience will provide us with the skills we need to support our rapid growth and goals. His appointment to the board as CEO is a tremendous boost for the business, customers and team and I wish him every success.’
Dominik Wellmann commented, “I am delighted to have joined Future Digital at this important stage in the company’s history. Future Digital is a leader in the UK education sector by providing solutions for Safeguarding and Prevent and I am very excited about our future plans for this sector. The company has successfully developed software that maintains the right balance between enabling a positive digital experience for students whilst ensuring their safety and well-being. Our people are our greatest asset and I am very pleased to be able to lead, as well as being a member, of such a talented team. I am particularly looking forward to engaging with our existing and prospective customers and our industry partners as we develop the next generation of our highly-acclaimed monitoring software suite, introduce new products and enter new markets.”
