How is Tesserent performing in 2021?

In today’s release, Tesserent advised it has achieved significant growth for the year-to-date period ending October 2021. This has led to an increase in turnover of 67% when compared to the prior corresponding timeframe.

Divisional earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) growth jumped 150% over FY20, driven by targeted acquisitions.

Management shuffle

Furthermore, the company has reshuffled its senior management team to align with its new go-to-market strategy.

According to the release, Kurt Hansen will take the reins as CEO, focusing on maximising organic growth and steering the business in the right direction.

Geoff Lord takes on the role of executive chair, and Julian Challingsworth will step down from the board to start his new position as chair of Tesserent Innovation.

Chief financial officer James Jones will assume broader responsibilities across mergers and acquisitions and investor relations. The company said Mr Jones brings a wealth of experience from his time served at leading accounting firms, Deloitte, and Ernst & Young.
