Leading SaaS HR provider, Ciphr, has appointed Imran Akhoun as its director of M&A to support the group’s strategic growth plans.
A new role for the Marlow-based group, Akhoun will report directly to Ciphr’s CFO, Ray Berry. He will work closely with the leadership team and board of directors. Akhoun will look to identify possible merger and acquisition opportunities, through to managing due diligence processes and coordinating transactions.
An experienced corporate development director, Akhoun joins Ciphr from SaaS supplier management platform Fortius Networks where he was focused on developing their European presence. Prior to that he held similar positions in various companies across HR, education, and marketing technology.
Akhoun’s appointment follows that of David Burns last month, who joined Ciphr as chief technology officer (CTO).
