Anglia Business Solutions Ltd, a leading software and IT consultancy group, has appointed a new chief operating officer as the company moves into its next phase of growth.

Nikki Scarr brings nearly 30 years of industry knowledge and experience in enterprise resource planning (ERP),  supply chain and performance management, and will drive Anglia’s plan for international expansion, by building outstanding project delivery and support services.

Prior to joining Anglia Business Solutions, Nikki was Vice President of consulting at Infor Global Solutions.

As a key member of the Executive Board at Anglia, Nikki’s objectives for the first 12 months will include; managing the launch of the company’s LINKFresh food supply chain ERP solution on the Microsoft Dynamics AX platform, significantly increasing the footprint for LINKFresh in both the UK and US marketplace and building on the project delivery and support capability within the organisation.

Commenting on her new role, Nikki said:  “I see a wonderful growth opportunity in this company and the solutions it offers. The LINKFresh application, in particular, is a fantastic industry specific product with a unique position in the food sector. I’m ERP born and bred and my objectives are to facilitate the growth plans, develop the business proposition and, most of all, further improve the service to our customers.”

Anglia’s Group CEO, Robert Frost, said: “Nikki has a proven track record of fostering team spirit and achieving sustained growth in terms of both revenue and profit.  Following last year’s £6 million management buyout, I’m confident that Nikki will add value by nurturing our already exceptionally strong management team and helping us to achieve our goal of annual revenues of over £20 million within the next 3 years.”
