The appointment of Phillips is the first step of a management restructuring which sees Ocean Intelligence bringing in experienced first-class talent and promoting key staff as it prepares to meet global growth opportunities. Phillips is heading the next phase of the restructuring with more appointments to follow before the start of the new year. With immediate effect, Vernon Jayanathan is promoted from Sales Manager for Ocean Intelligence to Sales Director.
Jayanathan has over 15 years of commercial experience working with large multinationals as well as local and central government organisations. “I would like Ocean Intelligence to be seen as the provider of choice for those who
are looking for a premium supplier of company intelligence and credit reports,” said Jayanathan.
