Steve Fisher to step down from FD Technologies BoD
FD Technologies plc (LON:FDP), formerly known as First Derivatives, announces that Steve Fisher, Non-Executive Director, has submitted his resignation and will step down from the Board at the end of January 2022.
This follows his appointment in a full-time senior executive role at Salesforce.com, where Mr Fisher previously worked. Consequently he will be unable to devote the required time to his role at FD Technologies.
A search for a replacement Non-Executive Director has been initiated, the company says.
Steve Fisher commented:
“I have been hugely impressed by the FD Technologies assets and delighted to play a part in developing the strategy to drive adoption of the Group’s technology, particularly the KX Insights roadmap. I continue to see significant opportunities for KX to underpin the data management and analysis infrastructure that businesses require to extract full value from their data.
While my new role at Salesforce requires me to step down from the FD Technologies Board, I believe the Group is on the right path to commercialising its technology advantage.”
Donna Troy, Chairman, commented: “Steve has made an important contribution to our strategy and while we understand his reason for leaving, we will miss his insight. A search is under way for an additional Non-Executive Director with enterprise technology development expertise as we capitalise on the growing market opportunities for KX.”
Mr Fisher joined the Board of FD Technologies in September 2020. He was formerly Chief Technology Officer of eBay Inc. Prior to that, he spent 10 years at salesforce.com in software engineering and product management leadership roles.
Mr Fisher has also held senior technology development positions within telecoms and networking, including at Apple and AT&T Labs.
