Forrit, the next generation enterprise content management system (CMS), has appointed Sean Gordon as product manager to drive its product roadmap.
Sean’s appointment also marks the next stage in the company’s evolution as it shifts from a service-led organisation to becoming more product focused whereby customers will be able to utilise the CMS platform on a self-service basis.
Following its rebrand last summer, Forrit has focused on enhancing its portal to ensure the fully integrated solution provides the best customer experience possible regardless of tech ability. In this newly created role, Sean will work closely with the company’s CTO Doug Cunningham to enrich Forrit’s product offering by expanding the platform capabilities and refining the overall user experience.
During his 13 years at Chevron, Sean was focused on enterprise-scale work as well as leading Chevron’s worldwide Technical Expert programme. Prior to joining Chevron Sean spent nine years with Microsoft Consulting Services designing and delivering complex technology solutions for global enterprise customers.
Commenting on Sean’s appointment, Doug Cunningham, CTO, Forrit noted: “Sean’s technical experience is unrivaled, covering everything from solution architectures to integration. The pandemic has driven many businesses to accelerate their digital transformation programmes. However, in parallel, they still want to be able to have the opportunity to drive some of that change themselves using a self-service portal. At Forrit, Sean will be integral in pushing the boundaries of our product offering to ensure it is more accessible and will make sure that clients’ CMSs are fit for whichever purpose they need.”
Sean added: “Joining such an innovative and agile company as Forrit will allow me to rekindle my passion for product development and give me the opportunity to help develop world-leading technology. The team has already achieved considerable results for their clients and my job will be to build on this to extend the platform to deliver the innovative capabilities our clients demand.”
In addition to his role with Forrit, Sean will continue his 20+ year role a member of the ScotlandIS Young Software Engineer of the Year judging panel.
