Dext has appointed experienced software executive Sabby Gill as the company’s next CEO with Steve Rowley moving from an interim role back to his position as chairman.

Mr Rowley said that the appointment of Mr Gill was another sign of the firm’s development.

“At Dext, we have gone from strength to strength in the past 12 months and have just delivered a strong H1,” said Mr Rowley.

“We continue to provide our customers — accountants and bookkeepers, and SMBs, across the globe — with market-leading solutions that make lives easier.

“With Sabby joining us, Dext has a bright future and will continue to grow strongly as an independent business, serving our customers with innovative, accounting automation solutions.”

The company said that Mr Gill was a proven CEO and has brought over 34 years of experience within the technology sector including work in the accounting and bookkeeping industry.

Dext said he would bring great experience to the role through his previous positions as CEO of Thomas International and managing director of Sage in the UK and Ireland, as well as senior roles at HP, Oracle, Ca Technologies, and Epicor Software.

Mr Gill said that he was honoured to continue the work Dext had been achieving.

“It is a privilege to take on the leadership of a successful SaaS FinTech business,” he said. “My passion has always been unlocking the potential of companies, and Dext does just that.

“I’ve been impressed with the level of product innovation coming from Dext. The recent ‘Practice Insights’ launch is a perfect example of how we bring value and actionable insights to Accountants and Bookkeepers, and I’m looking forward to unlocking even more offerings.

“I am obsessed with customer and employee engagement, and I’m excited to meet many of the partners and businesses Dext supports. We are entering a bold new chapter in the Dext story, and I’m delighted to have the opportunity to lead the business.”

Dext develops software that helps boost the financial data workflow processes of accountants and bookkeepers and is determined to improve the accounting process.
