Our investment in Mandata in late 2021 marked the beginning of a new chapter for the leading transport management software provider, and we’re thrilled to accelerate this next stage of growth by welcoming Martin Randel to the business.
When it comes to growing ambitious, private equity-backed tech companies, Martin’s earned his stripes. Having spent the early stages of his career at leading firms Goldman Sachs and McKinsey & Company, he’s gone on to co-found and grow several successful businesses. Among these are Vitamin Well (functional food and drinks) and Nordics-based Unifaun (delivery management software).
During his time at the helm at Unifaun, he scaled the business internationally, led it through multiple private equity cycles, and delivered a best-in-class SaaS offering.
As Chair of Mandata, Martin will sit on the board. He joins to support the team in a number of critical initiatives, including scaling Mandata’s SaaS platform, international growth and M&A strategy.
What does Martin bring to Mandata? CEO Chris Rigg said: “We are incredibly pleased to have Martin on board as a valued adviser to me and my management team. We will draw on his rich record of scaling logistic tech companies globally. His practical knowledge will prove invaluable in our current period of rapid transformation aimed at delivering world-class haulier software to our customers.”
Martin shares his thoughts on the move: “Following its recent acquisition by Tenzing, Mandata is a business on the cusp of significant expansion following extensive investment in its people, products, and services. It is a particularly exciting time to join the team on their journey, and I very much look forward to supporting them.”
Welcome, Martin. We’re absolutely delighted to have you on board!
