Swindon’s award-winning contact centre, Carpeo, has appointed The Honourable C. Jerome Dill as non-executive board member as it continues on its growth journey and expands into new sectors.
Jerome lives in Bermuda, is a lawyer by training and had his title bestowed by the Queen for his years of service as Deputy Prime-Minister of Bermuda. He was integral to the growth of a significant Re-insurance business Validus, which he listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Since he retired from there in 2013, he now invests in interesting high growth businesses.
Jerome said: “I’m delighted to be involved in Carpeo. I have been involved with various companies on both sides of the Atlantic, both private and public and in various stages of development. What attracted me to Carpeo is the strength of the management team and its vision for growing the company, for the advantage of all its stakeholders. Based upon my extensive research, I have no doubt that our future together will be an exciting and productive one.”
Peter Wilcock, director and co-founder of Carpeo, said: “We’re delighted to have someone of Jerome’s calibre and experience join the business. He will bring a breadth of knowledge across a wide range of topics which will benefit us hugely as we continue to expand our business scope. We now have strength in depth on our Board as well as our management team which will serve us well in the future.”
Carpeo expanded their operation earlier this year, opening a new call centre in Newport with the ambition to create 300 new jobs. In Swindon the company employs 250 people.
