Cloud services firm Doherty Associates has expanded its management team with the appointment of technology strategist Caleb Mills, as the company’s new CTO.

Having joined Doherty 13 years ago, Mills moves from Technical Director to the firm’s board.

Mills started his career as a field engineer and consultant over 20 years ago, and brings both technical and commercial knowledge which the firm said had already been important in its clients’ growth and technology progress.

Commenting on his promotion, Mills said: “I’m delighted to be appointed Doherty’s CTO. It shows our confidence as a business in continuing to invest in our people, our solutions and our client services even during these unprecedented economic times. With Doherty turning 30 next year, I look forward to this next chapter in driving our culture of creative innovation and relentless reliability.”

Doherty added: “Under Caleb’s leadership as Technical Director, the knowledge and expertise within the technical team has gone from strength to strength.

“Now as our new CTO, Doherty is in a great place to strengthen its market position further as a front runner in delivering highly secure and compliant technical innovations that digitally transform businesses, enabling them to swiftly and securely adapt as we enter this new phase of normal.”
