Ligentia has announced a pivotal leadership transition effective October 1st, 2023. Dan Gill, who has been with Ligentia in leadership roles for almost 9 years, assumes the role of Chief Executive Officer (CEO) as the company’s founder and current CEO, Nick Jones, transitions to Executive Chairman. Garry Watts will move from his current role as Chairman to Non-Executive Director.

Dan Gill brings a wealth of industry expertise and experience to his new role as CEO of Ligentia. His appointment follows a successful tenure as Chief Customer Officer, where he played a vital role in enhancing customer relationships, driving innovation, and advancing Ligentia’s global presence. Dan’s leadership, customer focus and commitment to excellence align perfectly with Ligentia’s strategic goals.

Nick Jones founded Ligentia after seeing the opportunity to develop a supply chain management platform that could provide customers with better ways to manage and control their global inventories, data and connect the end-to-end supply chain. Nick has led Ligentia through sustained periods of international growth and sector diversification, fostering long-standing relationships with some of the world’s leading companies. His transition to Executive Chairman underscores his ongoing dedication to Ligentia’s continued success and growth. Nick will continue to provide valuable guidance and leadership, ensuring a seamless transition and long-term stability for the company.

“It has been a great privilege to lead this business over the past 27 years. I have worked with so many committed people from all over the world and I am enormously proud of all the things we have achieved together to improve supply chains for some of the world’s best-known companies,” said Nick. “Dan has consistently demonstrated his ability to drive innovation and deliver results during his tenure as Chief Customer Officer. I have every confidence that he will lead Ligentia into a bright future.”

Dan said:

“I am honoured to take on this new challenge as CEO of Ligentia. Nick has laid a remarkable foundation for our company, and I am committed to building upon that. Together with our talented global teams, we will continue to provide world-class data driven supply chain solutions and drive new and better ways of delivering innovation to our customers.”

In 2021, Ligentia received investment from Equistone Partners Europe to deliver its ambitious growth plans. Commenting on the new appointment, Sebastien Leusch, Investment Director at Equistone, and Director Chris Candfield said:

“We have full confidence in Dan Gill’s ability to lead Ligentia to further success. We remain hugely impressed by the clear ambition Dan, Nick and the team have to scale and build a diverse, customer-focused and responsive global supply chain management business.”
