Aker Systems has completed a significant strengthening of its Sales team. Over the past few months, we have welcomed Lee Hendricks, Marc Cregor, Adrian Pikett and Joe Harris to the Aker family.

Marc joins Aker as Client Services Director with over 25 years’ experience in leading major client engagements in highly regulated industries selling services, software and cloud offerings.

Adrian has a twenty-year career in sales and sales management at some of the largest Systems Integrators in the world. He has successfully secured multiple annuity based contracts valued between £2m and £250m, predominantly within the UK public sector.

Joe joins as Aker Systems' first Bid Manager. Joe previously worked for Capita, Edenred and Instructure, Inc., a US-based EdTech company. At Instructure, Inc. he secured a number of high-profile enterprise deals.

On completing their investment, Darren Thomas, CEO of Aker Systems, said: “I am delighted to welcome Lee, Marc, Adrian and Joe to the Aker family. Their experience in enterprise sales is phenomenal and will help us continue our rapid growth journey.”
