KST appoints new CCO for DYMENSiON
Craig Copeland has been appointed Chief Commercial Officer for DYMENSiON, a Kings Secure Technologies company (KST). Craig’s role is to lead on commercial development and sales of our SaaS platform.
Over the last 20 years, Craig has worked with some of the world’s largest brands, offering the best of breed solutions in the technology industry.
Craig been involved in the SaaS Technology market since the mid-2000’s, beginning with a new cyber security start-up, leading their sale division. He specialised in the email and web filtering security vertical as Head of Sales until its successful exit and acquisition by US based J2 Global, a large Tech M&A giant, in 2014. Following the acquisition, Craig joined the J2 European leadership team as Sales Director for their cybersecurity business as head of Country for the UK and Ireland and managed additional sales teams across Northern Europe. He was also part of their European expansion team that oversaw several additional M&A integrations into the business.
Following his departure from J2 in late 2019, Craig opted for a new and fresh challenge where he was able to spend the last two years developing a Global distribution network within fire safety and protection for clean energy innovation and Lithium-ion battery technology developers for the electric automotive drive.
Though he really enjoyed his new challenge, Craig has a deep passion for Cloud technology and therefore, saw himself back there in his career path. He met Bob Forsyth and other managing members of the KST team who brought him back into the industry with their new product, DYMENSiON.
Craig has always loved technology, especially when it comes to aiding and simplifying the way people can go about their daily business. Delivering on client and customers’ expectations is a core value and something that Craig makes sure he works towards within his, and his teams, work: ‘My belief in delivering a complete 360° package of Tech and Service has held me in good stead for many years across multiple businesses and something I will always push to deliver as a principle and ethos without exception’.
DYMENSiON is a flexible true Workflow and Incident Management Platform. With its future development plans, Craig believes there could be a real need for a subscription-based product now and in the future: ‘really, DYMENSiON is such a versatile and exciting piece of technology that any business, which has a formal process or a structured workflow that needs to be digitised with the aim of improving their estates performance through real and tangible data intelligence DYMENSiON platform could absolutely provide the answer’.
‘The opportunity of joining the team as Chief Commercial Officer for the DYMENSiON business was an extremely easy decision and one that I am delighted to have been offered’.
‘Craig joins KST and DYMENSiON with a wealth of sales and SaaS technology experience in the security sector. His vast experience along with his commitment to delivering a great client and customer service through technology will help us gain a leading position in this evolving sector. We are delighted to have him lead as Chief Commercial Officer’ – Bob Forsyth.
