Knoware’s Managing Director moves on; new CEO appointed

After almost 20 years at the helm Clare Somerville has decided it is time for a change and will be moving from Knoware.
Her last day as Managing Director at Knoware will be Thursday 30 April 2020.

Clare has been the face of Knoware since it started trading in 2003 and has provided solid leadership and direction since then, turning Knoware into a leading Analytics, SAS and Information Management consultancy in New Zealand.

Her departure marks a new phase in Knoware’s future with Cam Chapman stepping up into the role of Chief Executive Officer effective 1 May 2020. Cam brings over 30 years’ experience to the role in the IT space working both with and in local, national and global IT organisations and government and private sectors. His multi-faceted background covers software, data, information, architecture, software sales and general management.

He will continue to be supported by Colin Harris, Knoware’s Technical Director and owner; Suzanne Turner, Operations Manager and the Knoware board.

Knoware looks forward to continuing to provide excellent support and assistance to our current and new clients, and we look forward to launching some exciting new initiatives in 2020.
