LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Arundo Analytics, a software company enabling advanced analytics in heavy industry, today announced its expansion to UK with an official location in London. Paul W. Seccombe, Ph.D. is joining Arundo as Commercial Lead for UK, based in London and focusing on serving Oil & Gas, Power Generation, Renewables and Chemical companies in their digital transformation and advanced analytics efforts in the region. The location also includes local delivery personnel, supporting a strong customer presence in the region. Arundo recently announced several UK-based accounts, including Acteon and Coats Group plc.
“The Arundo Enterprise Suite offers industry-leading and market-unique potential for a wide range of customers across Europe – directly connecting teams of data scientists with operations engineers to develop visualization of KPIs, predictions and notifications of key operational aspects,” said Seccombe. “I’m truly excited about joining the Arundo team to serve companies in the region and further develop Arundo’s partner and client roster.”
Despite increasing global competition, particularly from the US and China, the UK chemical sector grew 3.6 percent in 2017, and contributed £12.1B to the UK’s gross value added (GVA) the year prior, according to a 2018 report from the House of Commons.
“Paul has a legacy of delivering significant enterprise sales in EMEA and an extensive background delivering business value to customers and prospects,” said Edoardo Jacucci, GM EMEA Arundo. “We believe his deep experience in Oil & Gas, Power, and Chemicals will expand Arundo’s reach to key growth verticals in attractive markets like the UK and throughout broader Europe.”
Arundo’s expansion to London comes on the heels of significant personnel growth; a more than 50 percent increase in global headcount since the company’s Series A $25 million initial closing in January of this year, and expansion to Calgary, Canada and Stockholm, Sweden.
