Company opens new North American headquarters in New York, expands senior leadership team with three female directors to support international growth
Amsterdam, November 13, 2018 – Software Improvement Group (SIG), a global technology consultancy firm delivering independent software quality assurance solutions, announced today the opening of its North American headquarters in New York, New York. To support its global growth strategy, SIG has also appointed three new members to its senior leadership team with international track records in finance, human resources and marketing. Independent and impartial, SIG supports its enterprise customers as well as the investor community globally with their growing need to gain control over the code quality underlying their mission-critical IT applications and ensure that their software landscapes can support their business objectives.
Growing North American demand for IT due diligence
With the opening of its New York office, SIG becomes the first organization to address the growing market demand from North American (corporate) investors to identify and quantify the IT risks and opportunities hidden within target companies. Based on source code analysis conducted in SIG’s ISO certified laboratory, SIG delivers real transparency and fact-based insight into the risks and true value (in USD/man years of development) of a technology or application, enabling investors to make better-informed investment decisions.
New female management team members
Jolanda Masen joined SIG September 1 as Chief Financial Officer: “I’m impressed by the growth potential we see in the various markets, both in Europe and the United States. SIG can leverage my international experience in taking global companies to the next level, while ensuring healthy financial growth.” Prior to SIG, Jolanda served in a variety of senior financial roles within PwC, DHL, Schiphol Group and Industry International.
To help build out its highly-experienced team in Europe and the United States, SIG has named Jo-Ann Vis as its new Vice President of Human Resources. Clarinda Dobbelaar will serve as the company’s new Vice President of Marketing to further fuel international growth and develop its propositions. Both Vis and Dobbelaar have extensive backgrounds with global technology companies, including Nasdaq, BlueCielo and several Microsoft partners.
Clarinda Dobbelaar, Vice President of Marketing: “It’s the right time to expand our footprint in the US. We have successfully implemented our software quality assurance solutions at a number of blue chip customers in North America, enabling them to build, buy and operate maintainable software to support their businesses. With our IT Due Diligence solution, we address a very concrete need facing investors today, and that continues to be confirmed by the response we get from our North American clients. They typically tell us that they can’t imagine conducting mergers or acquisitions without this clear insight into the quality and potential of the target technology.”
