We are thrilled to announce the appointment of Bob Mann as our new chair of the board.

The appointment represents a significant milestone in our growth, as we have not previously had need for such a position.

“We are experiencing a time of great change in the business community, where generating positive social impact is accelerating up the corporate agenda. Social Value Portal is at the forefront of the movement to enable companies to deliver social value to their communities. Social Value Portal’s growth in the last two years has been huge and I am very much looking forward to contributing to the success of the SVP team.” Bob Mann

Bob Mann is a highly experienced non-executive director and chairman. He has helped management teams at Bridgepoint, Amadeus Capital and Beringea to focus on their customers success, and to execute and scale their SaaS businesses both vertically and geographically.

“Appointing a chair of the board is a truly significant moment for us. Bob will bring a wealth of experience in the software arena as well as providing strong strategic vision for the business and we are very happy to have him on board.
