Andrew Seerden, who was appointed chief operating officer of Revera in August, has left the company. His decision to depart was driven by Roger Cockayne deciding to stay on as chief executive officer. Seerden had been appointed to the COO role as part of a succession plan to enable Cockayne to taper off operational management responsibilities and focus on strategic initiatives. Cockayne is the co-founder of Revera. Seerden joined Revera after a period of management consulting. Previously, he was general manager of the Hewlett-Packard Imaging and Printing Group and held senior roles at Compaq. The longer-term plans were for him to take the role of CEO with Cockayne as executive director. At the time, Cockayne described Seerden’s appointment as a key milestone.
Robin Cockayne, Roger Cockayne's son, has been promoted to the newly created position of general manager – business development, responsible for national sales, marketing and business development.
