Optimate Announcement: Senior Leadership Update

Dear Optimate customer and relations,

In the past 12 months, Optimate has strengthened its focus on being the best-of-class data integration company in the Operational Data domain, and truly Power your Operational Intelligence. We have seen that reflected in both the positive feedback we received from many of you, as in the growing engagement in great projects and initiatives. Especially in these times that shows a great deal of trust in us – thank you!

To make sure we are positioned to deliver and exceed your expectations, we strive continuously to align the vision and strategy of Optimate to the personal passion and energy of our people. In that process, we agreed to a change in our senior leadership. As of June 30, 2020 Steve Miller will resign from Optimate and the Optimate Board of Directors, and explore an independent initiative aimed at developing innovative data management solutions.

Steve is recognised in Australia and abroad as one of the primary thought leaders and visionaries in Data Management and Data Contextualisation. He has expressed to us his desire to fully concentrate on this topic and follow his passion. To this end we came to an amicable and cooperative decision that segregation from Optimate was in the best interest of both Steve and Optimate.

This decision was not taken lightly by either of us. Steve founded Optimate over 20 years ago and has been the embodiment of the organisation throughout the years. He was CEO until October last year, and after handing over to me he has continued as Lead for the Context and Quality Practice and invaluable mentor for the incoming Executive Team. To say he will be missed is an understatement.

Between now and the end of June we will execute handover of current projects and relations; this process has started in the background and will ensure a seamless transition from a customer perspective. If you have any concerns or questions, please reach out to myself, Naomi Robinson or your Optimate account manager.

On behalf of Optimate and the Optimate Board of Directors, I wish Steve Miller all success in the exciting journey he is embarking on. Take care, Steve!

Kind regards

Francois Mevis
