Trade documentation software specialist Bolero International Ltd has confirmed the appointment of former CreditCall chief operating officer Ian Kerr as CEO.
In his new role, Kerr will take responsibility for building on Bolero's success as a pioneer of electronic document solutions and driving growth in new sectors and geographies.
"I am delighted to be joining Bolero's senior team at this pivotal point in the company's development," commented Kerr. "Bolero has and continues to be at the forefront of development in trade finance technology. In particular, its cutting-edge ePresentation solutions have become increasingly popular with organisations in Asia and Western Europe, with huge scope for future success."
While at CreditCall, Kerr led the sales and marketing activities in developing new markets and accounts for the company's PSP gateway and EMV technology solutions. Previously, he also worked as CEO of Level Four Software, which was successfully acquired by Clear2Pay Open Test Solutions, where Kerr held the post of General Manager to lead the integration of Level Four with two other testing solutions businesses.
"Having made the transition from pioneer to early market leader, Bolero is in a strong position to use its solid experience to capitalise on global demand for electronic document presentation and electronic bill of lading solutions," said Nicholas Barber, Bolero Chairman. "Ian's solid experience working with well-known technology brands and his deep experience in financial technology make him extremely well-suited to the role."
