The Smart Cube appoints Gary Bullard as non-executive director

Global knowledge process outsourcing (KPO) firm The Smart Cube and London-based venture capital firm Smedvig Capital have appointed Gary Bullard as a non-executive director of The Smart Cube.

The Smart Cube is a pioneer in the KPO space, specialising in delivering customised, high value research and analysis to their clients, whilst reducing total costs.

The business was ranked the number one KPO firm globally in The Black Book of Outsourcing’s prestigious 2010 survey and has delivered over 6,000 studies to a customer base of more than 200 blue chip clients. These include leading corporations and professional service firms spanning every major industry and functional area across the world, as well as SMEs and earlier stage companies.

Headquartered in London, the firm has more than 400 staff with offices in New York, Chicago, Detroit, London, Zurich, Antwerp, Timisoara, Hong Kong, New Delhi, Montevideo and Dalian.
Bullard began his career at IBM, where he held a number of roles across the business development, sales, marketing and management functions, in London, Paris and New York. Bullard then took the position of managing director UK for BT Global Services, a GBP5bn business where he grew the business through a focus on re-engineering sales and marketing as well as selective M&A. Most recently, Bullard was appointed chief executive of Logica UK where a major focus included re-engineering the front end of the company.

Bullard is also currently a non-executive director of FTSE 250 companies Rotork plc and was previously on the board of Chloride plc, and is the founder of Catquin.
As a non-executive director of The Smart Cube, Bullard will focus on working with the senior team to accelerate growth using his sales and marketing expertise.

Bullard says: “I am delighted to be joining The Smart Cube board. I have been very impressed with the high quality of their work and the strong feedback from their clients. There is an enormous opportunity in delivering that level of quality at highly competitive equivalent FTE rates, particularly in a market where all companies have to focus on doing more with less”.
Gautam Singh, The Smart Cube CEO, says: “We are delighted to have a non-exec on board of Gary’s calibre and track record. His experience in shaping sales and marketing organisations around the world will be invaluable to us as we seek to accelerate our growth and capitalise on the significant market opportunity we see before us.”
