Mandata unveils new Leadership Team to drive business forward

Today, European tech investor Tenzing unveiled a significant achievement within its portfolio as Mandata Group announced the appointment of two key executives and the formation of a dynamic new Leadership Team. This strategic move brings together seasoned professionals from functional areas of the business, poised to steer Mandata into its next era of growth and innovation.

Celebrating its 50th year of operation, Mandata is a leading provider of transport management software solutions, supporting over 1,500 road transport and logistics companies throughout the UK and Ireland. With an unwavering commitment to customer success, the newly assembled Leadership Team boasts unparalleled industry expertise dedicated to elevating Mandata’s core TMS offering.

Leading the way as Mandata’s new Executive Chair is Richard Stevenson, who brings over two decades of experience driving transformational change in the Software and Financial Services sectors.

Previously, Richard was CEO of Red Box, a UK-based conversational analytics provider. He led the company for seven years prior to its acquisition by Uniphore, a global leader in B2B Artificial Intelligence (AI) in 2023. Between 1998 and 2015, he held senior leadership roles with Standard Life and was CEO of other technology-related businesses, including Focus Solutions Group PLC and AST Europe.

Expressing his enthusiasm for his new role, Richard remarked: “Mandata is a great business, and I am very pleased to be working with such an experienced and knowledgeable team. I am looking forward to building on Mandata’s success to date and focusing fully on delivering great customer outcomes.”

Joining Richard is Ali Young, appointed as Chief Operating Officer, renowned for her expertise in optimising operations, team dynamics, and customer success strategies. With a proven track record in deploying mission-critical software solutions for various organisations, including major financial institutions and emergency services, Ali is poised to lead all operational aspects of Mandata’s business.

Commenting on her appointment, Ali shared her excitement, stating: “I’m thrilled to join Mandata to play a key role in delivering positive outcomes for our customers. I set high standards for service delivery and look forward to collaborating closely with our valued partners.”

Mike Reynolds, Investment Lead at Tenzing, added: “This reinvigorated Leadership Team marks a pivotal moment for Mandata, emphasising innovation and a renewed dedication to serving its customers. With team members representing various aspects of the business, Mandata is well equipped to utilise its combined expertise in exceeding the evolving needs of its valued clients.”

Tenzing invested in Mandata in October 2021. In September 2022, it supported Mandata with the acquisition of Eureka, a prominent Irish transport and logistics software company. Mandata is one of 18 high-growth businesses within Tenzing’s portfolio.
