Listed public sector software firm announces NED


AIM-listed public sector software supplier ldox has announced that Non-Executive Director Oliver Scott has decided to step down from the firm’s Board with immediate effect as it appoints a replacement.

Alice Cummings will join as a Non-Executive Director with immediate effect.

Headquartered in West Berkshire, the company has offices in Glasgow, Cambridge, Hillsborough and Manchester.

It provides a range of software for local and central government, alongside a private sector arm. One of its solutions currently tracks more than 11.5 million Active Patient Records in NHS Trusts across the UK.

Cummings, a Vice-Chair of Cottsway Housing Association and a Non-Executive Director of Health Intelligence, was formerly Group CFO at the InHealth Group for over seven years.

During her career, she also spent over 16 years in commercial, operational and financial roles with the AEA Group, a main listed environmental, energy efficiency and data management consultancy, ultimately as Group CFO. She is qualified as an FCA, having started her career with PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Chris Stone, Non-Executive Chairman of Idox, said of the board changes: “Oliver joined the Idox board on 1 November 2018 at a time when the Company was facing significant challenges. His appointment was the first step in a major refresh of the Board. Since then, Idox has successfully addressed those challenges and, led by a newly constituted Board, senior management and finance teams, is making good progress in implementing a strategy to deliver value for clients and shareholders.

“I would like to thank Oliver for his substantial contribution to the Company’s progress over this period.

“As Oliver steps down, we are pleased to have appointed Alice to Idox’s Board. She joins us at an important stage following our turnaround in the last financial year and brings with her excellent judgement and a strong track record of success.

“Her depth of executive experience in strategy and governance, will enable her to make a significant contribution to the Board.”
