Research software firm Confirmit has appointed Noel Hamill as Chief Marketing Officer, replacing Michael Wooh, who had held the role for a decade. Hamill joins following last week's announcement that Confirmit and customer insights software firm FocusVision are to merge.
Headquartered in Norway, Confirmit has additional offices in the UK, US, Russia, Canada, and Australia. The firm was sold to private equity fund Verdane last year, and provides solutions for customer experience, employee experience and market research. Confirmit's merger with FocusVision is conditioned on receipt of regulatory approvals.
Hamill (pictured) joins in London after a stint at health tech company Prevayl, where he led the marketing operation through its start-up phase. Prior to this, he was CMO at Ladbrokes Coral, and he worked in the telecoms sector: as MD, Marketing for EE; Director of Consumer Propositions at Hutchison 3G; and CMO / Consumer Business Unit Director at Vodafone Hutchison Australia; and he spent nine years at Optus, latterly as Director of Marketing and Strategy.
In his new role, Hamill will replace Wooh, who joined in 2011 and left the company last April. Commenting on Hamill's appointment, CEO Kyle Ferguson said: 'We are thrilled to welcome Noel to the team at this incredibly exciting time for our business. His proven expertise and experience will help us to define our position in the market, identify new opportunities to better serve our customers, and ensure that we are able to help researchers turn insights into stories that fuel action. Ultimately, he will help us drive global business growth.'
