New Predatar appointment is logical AND exciting

With a name like NORgate, he just had to lead the pack in the data storage business.

Following the recent release of Predatar 11, the platform for cloud data protection service providers, the team wanted someone to lead the next chapter of our story.

We are delighted to welcome Rick Norgate who joins Predatar as Managing Director. Rick brings superb team building and people management skills, which combined with his background in strategic product management and implementation, made him the natural choice.

Doug Sawers, Non-Executive Director Predatar, on hearing the appointment of Rick, commented “Predatar already has world-class technology which it is using to disrupt the traditional data protection industry. Rick Norgate will ensure the technology continues to disrupt, whilst shepherding the next phase of the company’s growth.”

Rick joins Predatar from SD Worx, a global leader in payroll and HR SaaS software and Managed Services. Rick was instrumental in their transition to a SaaS business model. Outside of work, Rick is a bit of a fitness nut, spending most of his spare time cycling and running.

Rick’s first task will be to get to know the Predatar partner community and to find out how the company can help accelerate their transition to profitable, SaaS enabled businesses.

Commenting on the appointment, CEO Alistair Mackenzie had this to say, “I’m delighted to welcome Rick to the team. Rick’s thinking is always so precise, and he will add a big dose of professionalism to everything we do.”

The appointment of Rick Norgate comes at a time when the data protection business is going through a period of rapid investment and disruption. Predatar’s patented technology for more “intelligent recovery” is at the forefront of this disruption.
