Email Systems Appoints Greg Miller As COO

Email management specialist Email Systems has appointed Greg Miller as COO to bolster the business’ senior management team and drive the company’s growth in order to meet aggressive expansions plans in both the UK and Europe. This news follows the announcement earlier in February that Neil Burgess, formerly CTO of Clearswift, has joined Email Systems as CTO.

The appointment of Greg Miller heralds a significant shift in the organisation, with CEO and co-founder of the business Neil Hammerton taking a wider role, focussing on developing strategic partnerships and creative business development. Working alongside Neil Hammerton, Greg Miller will be charged with overseeing the strategy, direction and day-to-day running of the organisation.

The change will also enable Hammerton to remain focussed on managing the senior level partnerships that he has developed as the head of the business across the Corporate, Education, Local Government and Healthcare sectors with organisations such as Fujitsu, Equinox Converged Solutions, The Ajilon Group and the East Midlands Broadband Consortium amongst others. Email Systems is also expanding internationally with existing offices in France and Sweden and a further roll out planned imminently.

Greg Miller joins Email Systems from BT, where he held the position of VP Product Management within the BT Conferencing business unit, responsible for the development of relationships with key partners, including Microsoft and Webex and customers, such as Intel, Merrill Lynch and Ford amongst others. Miller joined BT in 1997 as a Management Consultant before relocating from the UK to Boston, Massachusetts in 2001 to aid the launch and development of the US arm of the business which has subsequently developed organically to become a $50m business with 250+ personnel.

Said Greg Miller, COO of Email Systems:

“Given the recent rapid growth of Email Systems and the evolution of the sector as a whole, this is an extremely exciting time to be joining the organisation. In particular, the business is looking beyond the immediate market requirement for services which are addressing specific needs – such as anti-spam or anti-virus services – and considering the growing requirement for digital communication of all forms to be managed in order to be as effective as possible. Over the next three to five years I wholeheartedly believe that all digital communications will need to be clean, archivable and readily accessible wherever the user requires it, whether it has originated from an email, SMS or other digital medium.”

Neil Hammerton, CEO of Email Systems added:

“Greg’s appointment is a significant boost for our business as he brings heavyweight, first-hand experience of delivering rapid organic growth to organisations that are well placed to succeed. I’m looking forward to enjoying a fresh challenge and being able to take a creative approach to developing our business over the coming weeks and months.”
