- Eckoh has appointed Peter Simmonds as a non-executive director with effect from 21 July. His appointment follows the announcement at the time of preliminary results in June that non-executive director Clive Ansell intends to step down from the board at the annual general meeting in September.

Simmonds was chief executive of dotDigital Group for eight years and a major contributor to its success. Following his retirement in June 2015 he stepped down into the role of non-executive director.

Chief executive Nik Philpot said: "We are delighted to have appointed Peter. His experience running a successful Software as a Service technology company will bring a wealth of knowledge to the Board and his insights across a number of key verticals in which Eckoh operates will undoubtedly further strengthen the Company. Eckoh has developed an extremely high class Board which we feel reflects the quality of the international service we offer."
