Orro has appointed Daniel (Dan) Greengarten as Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director of the company, effective immediately.
This transition comes after Orro made a number of successful acquisitions in the past 18 months, including cyber security leaders, RIOT Solutions and eSecure, and leading public cloud and managed services provider, NW Computing, and looks ahead to its new phase of growth. Under Dan’s leadership, Orro will maintain a commitment to pursuing faster, simpler and more secure managed services across Australia, delivering innovative IT solutions to its customers.
Orro says Dan has been an integral part of the company since it launched in 2021, as Chief Operating Officer, demonstrating a deep understanding of the business and a commitment to driving collaboration across all areas.
Rodd Cunico, now former CEO, will remain with Orro in a new capacity, as a Non-Executive Director of the Board, working closely with Dan Greengarten on the company’s acquisition strategy.
On the leadership changes, Rodd Cunico commented, “The experience of being CEO for such a dedicated, intelligent, and creative team has been immensely rewarding, and to see the success of this business fills me with pride. I want to express my sincere gratitude for the opportunity to lead Orro over the last three and a half years. This change in leadership is in line with the evolving needs of Orro as we move into our next growth phase, and I am excited to see Dan step into the CEO role. I have no doubts that his vision for the business will take Orro to new heights.”
Stepping into his new role, Dan Greengarten commented, “It is an honour to lead the exceptional team at Orro and build on the remarkable foundation that Rodd has established over the last three and a half years. I want to express my appreciation to Rodd for his outstanding leadership, vision and contributions to Orro’s success. I look forward to continuing working with Rodd in his new capacity on the board, ensuring a seamless transition, collaboration on future initiatives and further growth of the group.”
Under Rodd’s leadership, Orro has established itself as a leader in cyber security, network and cloud services and will continue delivering his expert advice in his new board role, predominantly in merger and acquisition activity, and support Dan in his transition to CEO.
In addition, Heith Mackay-Cruise will become the Non-Executive Chair of the Board. Heith holds board positions on a number of ASX listed companies and brings experience from the broader global information economy sector. Heith has been on the Orro board as a non-executive director since its launch in 2021.
On his appointment, Heith Mackay-Cruise commented, “The success of Orro in its first few years has been driven by the expert knowledge and leadership of Rodd, and we thank him for his persistent dedication to the company. I look forward to working closely with Dan and my fellow directors, as Orro continues to establish itself as a leader in the industry, focusing on economic returns for all our stakeholders.”
Finally, Martin Uhrik, will join Orro in the role of Chief Financial Officer, bringing experience from various finance, commercial, investment and strategic roles held during his 23-year career, driving several mergers and acquisitions. Martin returns to Australia from the UK, where he held the role of Deputy Group Chief Financial Officer at Technicolour Creative Studios. Martin led the process to have Technicolour listed on the ASX, during a period in 2022 where most global financial markets were shut. Martin will replace Fabian Kuehn who is leaving Orro to relocate to New Zealand for personal reasons.
