The restructure of Financial Software Limited (FSL)
Following a year of planning, the corporate restructuring of FSL and Investment Software Limited is complete. Both companies were at different stages of their business cycle, and as such required distinct management styles with a focus towards their respective markets. The shareholding and management are now split with David Pirrie, the original founder of FSL, taking full ownership of FSL.
Under new management, with Ken Gillingham as CEO, the company will now be free to invest its resources toward product enhancement, new product research and development and putting a renewed focus on investment in employee development. “It was the quality of the people within FSL that took the company to a dominant position within our home market”, said David Pirrie. “We believe that if we continually give our employees access to learning opportunities, client interaction and idea sharing, as well as the freedom to be creative, we can take superior products and services further into European markets and those further East.”
Changes have begun and are continuing apace. FSL has established a recruitment drive to enhance our already very talented team. We have engaged the services of Vivienne Maguire to oversee all media messaging and establish our market intelligence unit. Ditto.tv have completely refreshed our brand identity and digital channel to reflect the maturity and professionalism of our company. Even the office has had a major facelift, ensuring an atmosphere of creativity surrounds everything that we do.
There are plenty more changes to come as we invest and plan toward becoming a truly global company.
