Globality announced today that it has appointed Martin Henley as senior vice president of the companys technology services sector group. Henley will lead a newly formed team that collaborates with customers to immediately unlock cost savings by revolutionizing their service procurement process to deliver better results across their technology-related service spend.
The market is seeing exponential growth in global IT service spend. According to a January 2019 forecast by Gartner, Inc., worldwide IT and communications services spend is projected to reach $2.4 trillion in 2019. Companies are actively seeking ways to manage escalating service costs and improve their bottom line, while sourcing from the providers who will best deliver top quality outcomes.
Leveraging its AI-powered Smart Sourcing technology combined with a proprietary network of suppliers, Globality disrupts the way businesses buy and sell services by replacing the analog request for proposal (RFP) process, and connecting global enterprises to the best service providers at the right price for every project.
Henley joins Globality from XL Catlin, a US-listed $15 billion revenue (re)insurance company. Most recently, he was managing director and group chief information officer, responsible for budgets of $600 million, and driving technology integration with multiple vendors across the globe.
An accomplished change and people leader with more than 15 years experience in global financial services, Henley has a successful track record of identifying and working with startups, as well as implementing AI, blockchain, and robotics initiatives. He is also a champion for diversity and inclusion, with his past teams winning awards for leadership and innovation.
Henleys background furthers Globalitys vision of creating a level playing field that gives all service providers, regardless of size or location, an opportunity to win projects on the merits of proven performance, expertise, and passion.
Martins first-hand experience as a CIO, combined with his technology services background, will help Globality accelerate our offerings for this dynamic, high-growth market. We look forward to his leadership in helping Globality identify new opportunities to connect customers with the best service provider for every project, said Globalitys Co-Founder, Chairman, and CEO Joel Hyatt.
