Clade Solutions names technology transformation executive Akos Szakaly as COO

Clade Solutions continues its ambitious growth strategy by naming technology transformation executive Akos Szakaly as Chief Operating Officer.

Sydney headquartered Clade Solutions announced that it has appointed Akos Szakaly as Chief Operating Officer, a new position within Clade. In this new role, Szakaly will lead all operational aspects of the business. Szakaly reports to Duncan Journee, Clade’s Chief Executive Officer.

“I am incredibly excited to be joining the Clade team. As one of the most impressive stories in the Microsoft business solutions space, backed with Brennan’s scale, I see huge potential in the combined team to become the dominant transformation enabler on the Australian market.

“Building upon the current thrust and fantastic team morale, I saw my experience and background could help fuel the company’s further growth, tied with strong delivery culture and operational excellence” said Akos Szakaly.

Szakaly joins Clade after a stint with Capgemini subsidiary Empired, where he was looking after Microsoft Dynamics Finance and Operations in the organisation’s Business Applications Practice. Before this he served on DXC Technology’s Senior Leadership Team, as Managing Partner in the Microsoft business unit.

The appointment comes as Clade continues its impressive growth of top-line revenue, recently reporting its best year ever and strong revenue growth of 74% year-on-year across FY2022.

“With the momentum of our ongoing growth, as well as our recent acquisition by leading Australian Managed Services Provider Brennan, Akos will provide the necessary laser-focus on operational excellence. He will also add Microsoft Dynamics Finance and Operations into our services, to further catapult Clade to the next level” said Journee.

“Our ultimate goals are to enable our customers to achieve their business outcomes with Microsoft technology, while providing an incredible opportunity for our employees to flourish” he continued.

“As a seasoned leader whose personal approach aligns with our core values, I am confident that Akos will add great value to our customers across Australia”.
