McKeever quits Tungsten; Bryant appointed as 'rainmaker'

29 April 2014  |  3288 views  |  1 Luke McKeever OB10

Luke McKeever, former CEO of e-invoicing network OB10, has quit his executive position at Tungsten, which acquired OB10 for £99 million in October last year.

McKeever's departure comes as the new company completes the first phase of its programme to integrate OB10's e-invoicing network with new spend analytics tools from @UK PLC and preps the links to third party finance providers and the (soon-to-be) freshly minted Tungsten Bank.

In a statement, the company says McKeever left his role as executive director by "mutual and amicable agreement".

His managerial responsibilities will be assumed by Tungsten founder Edi Truell and newly-appointed COO Lincoln Jopp.

Tungsten has also named Charles Bryant, co-chairman of the European E-invoicing Service Providers Association, to a new 'rainmaker' role, to work with European government bodies as they consider mandating the use of electronic invoicing in public procurement ahead of a forthcoming EU directive.

Apparently this was the worst of all timings to make the move. Does it make sense at all? You usually leave once the introduced change is thriving and stable, not at kickoff. I suspect there must be something we don’t know. I personally don’t welcome the announcement but am looking forward to understanding who- and when- Tungsten will appoint Luke's successor.

Kudos to Charles Bryant, he is truly a "rain maker" and an expert in his role. I am very happy for his appointment.
