Big-name companies have seen plenty of movement at executive level over the past couple of weeks.
Here, Business Chief takes a look at just some of the C-suite appointments you may have missed.
Jared Carver, Converse
Converse has a new CEO and President in the form of Jared Carver, who started in his new role at the beginning of June. He replaces Scott Uzzell, who has moved into a new role as VP/GM, North America at parent company, Nike.
Carver’s connections to Converse stretch back to 2010, when he joined as Director of Strategy and Business Development. Following a stint at Fanatics, he returned to Converse as VP for Strategy and became VP for North America in 2019.
Announcing the promotion, Nike said Carver had “unlocked strong growth in the brand’s largest geography”.
Converse generated revenue of US$2.35 billion in the financial year up to May 2022, up from US$2.2bn a year prior.
Kevin Akeroyd, Sovos
Kevin Akeroyd has been named as the new CEO of the global tax software provider, Sovos. He joins from Magnit, where he served as Chief Executive from 2020, overseeing a multi-billion-dollar organisation.
Akeroyd joins as more and more countries are mandating e-Invoicing, resulting in Sovos solutions being widely adopted across multinational enterprises.
Prior to joining Magnit, Akeroyd served as CEO at Cision, taking the company public on the NYSE. Previously, Akeroyd had been a General Manager at both Oracle and Salesforce, running category-leading business units in cloud software, services and data.
