African risk solutions provider Inoxico has appointed IT entrepreneur John Laatz as Chief Operations Officer. As COO, Laatz will solidify the business’s already strong foundation while introducing and refining processes to drive even greater efficiency and creativity.
André Stürmer, CEO at Inoxico stated that: “Our products are maturing and we are gaining excellent traction in the market, especially by having strengthened our reach into Africa. In the face of this expansion we remain committed to retaining our core differentiators of innovation and flexibility. This is where Laatz will be an important asset.”
Laatz joins the team from Progressive Dynamics Consulting, an international consulting, technology services and outsourcing company that he helped found. Raised and educated in Cape Town, Laatz’s strong technical background and extensive experience in Europe and the Indian subcontinent covers a range of industries. Over the course of his career, which includes extended tenures with Old Mutual, Achievement Awards Group and MasterCard (formerly DataCash), he has developed an uncanny ability to translate desired business outcomes into smooth operational processes.
“I am excited to join the Inoxico team and tackle the challenges of such a rapidly growing company. It’s great to work with a dynamic and motivated team that understands the commercial risk market, which is illustrated by Inoxico’s industry leading products such as Inoxico Tradeshield and Inoxico Matrix,” concluded Laatz.
