Sapphire Systems appoints new group CEO

Sapphire Systems, the digital operating platform provider to mid-market and enterprise organisations, has announced the appointment of Vince DeLuca as its group CEO.

The company’s founder and out-going CEO, Ian Caswell, will remain on the group board as a non-executive director.

DeLuca joined Sapphire Systems as the general manager of its US business in January 2021 from Logicalis Group, where he led the global systems integrator’s US businesses and sat on the group’s executive board. He has three decades’ experience in leadership roles in the technology industry.

DeLuca will now lead Sapphire Systems’ organic and acquisition-led growth strategy. He said: “I am incredibly proud to be leading Sapphire as we unite businesses across a new generation of digital operating platforms which are so instrumental in building future enterprises.

“Whether it’s our fast growth ServiceNow practice, or the organic investments we are making in Automation and RPA transformation services for our ERP and FMS customer base, I see Sapphire’s role as being the strategic provider of our customers’ digital operating transformation needs. My focus will be to ensure we deliver organic growth opportunities and target the acquisitions that will build scale in our chosen market segments. I want to congratulate Ian for building an amazing business and for his generous support during my transition into the CEO role.”

Ian Caswell, founder and out-going CEO of Sapphire Systems added: “After 28 years of leading an amazing team of people who deliver outstanding outcomes for our customers, I am delighted to be handing the leadership of Sapphire over to Vince. His experience in global systems integrators and managed service providers, combined with his passion for enabling customers to adopt disruptive digital transformation thinking, makes him a perfect successor to lead the business forward into the future.”
