Leading global supplier of software solutions to companies operating in highly regulated industries, Ideagen Plc, has announced the appointment of the company’s first Chief People Officer, Louise Tommasi.
Louise is an experienced Chief People Officer and has worked with large, complex companies, including Speedo and Incora.
CEO of Ideagen, Ben Dorks, said: “Ideagen has grown rapidly in the last few years, and we intend to keep growing the business and expanding our workforce in the years to come. It is important to us that we approach the recruitment, retention, and development of our fantastic team of people in the best way possible and so we felt the time was right to appoint a Chief People Officer to help us on our journey. Louise is a fantastic person with a wealth of knowledge in this field. I am really delighted that she has joined us and I look forward to her contribution to making Ideagen the number one employer in Nottingham and a sought after place to work worldwide.”
Louise commented: “I am very excited to be joining a company that genuinely puts people at the top of its agenda. To deliver on Ideagen’s growth plans we need to be able to attract and retain the best people possible and that is where I will be focusing my efforts initially. In the post-pandemic world of work, people are making different choices and for different reasons. We need to be as innovative in our working practices as we are in our product development to attract the best talent and I am looking forward to driving change and making a real impact on the future success of this very exciting business.”
Louise will be based primarily in the Nottingham, HQ, but will be spending time at Ideagen’s other centres around the globe. She is married with two children and a dog and spends her free time keeping fit and being a ‘spectator and taxi mum’.
