Peter Ward appointed as new CEO for MOQ Limited

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: MOQ Limited has appointed Peter Ward as Chief Executive Officer. Peter is an experienced business leader, a bourse filing said.

As Managing Director for WARDY IT Solutions prior its acquisition by MOQ Limited, he grew the company to be Australia’s leading provider of Data Platform and Data Analytics services and solutions.

Peter has a proven track record of productising IT services into high value recurring revenue streams as demonstrated with the Virtual DBA service.

More recently, Peter has held the position of Chief Solutions Officer at MOQ Limited, where he has been responsible for the growth of the Digital Services businesses and the broader go-to-market strategy.

Peter said, “I am looking forward to the opportunity to lead the next chapter for MOQ Limited. Joe has built a high calibre team around him that I am privileged to have the opportunity to lead. I am proud of the progress that we have achieved over the last two years as we established a solid foundation to enable our growth and enable organisations to accelerate their digital transformation with MOQ’s services.”

Current CEO, Joe D’Addio said, “Over the last 2 years we have pivoted the MOQ business and positioned it to capitalise on the opportunity that is the accelerating Digital Transformation market.

The acquisitions of Wardy IT Solutions and Dienst Consulting, the sale of Skoolbag and the re-engineering of our more traditional infrastructure line of business, now provides MOQ Limited with the platform for further growth and success in this accelerating market.

In parallel, we have assembled a strong senior leadership team, through a combination of external hiring of experienced industry leaders and the retention of founders and key staff from our acquisitions.

I firmly believe that the business now needs a Chief Executive Officer who has the capability, market knowledge, ambition, and energy to take MOQ Limited to the next level and that the timing is right for me to step aside and enable that transition.

I would like to congratulate Peter on his appointment. His experience in the market through building and growing the WARDY IT Solutions business and then the subsequent 2 years with MOQ, since the acquisition, provides an excellent basis for the demands of the CEO role at MOQ Limited.

As a shareholder, Director and soon to be ex-CEO I am looking forward to continuing my involvement with Peter and the team at MOQ Limited.”

Joe will be working with Peter and the MOQ executive team to ensure a smooth transition of leadership. He will continue to be involved as a non-executive director and assist MOQ with its merger and acquisition activity.

MOQ Limited Chairman David Shein said, “The board is delighted to welcome Peter into the Chief Executive role at MOQ Limited. Peter has a clear understanding about the direction of MOQ Limited combined with his previous experience growing and scaling businesses, I am confident in the decision to appoint him to this position.

The board and I would like to thank Joe for his contribution as CEO and look forward to his continued involvement as a Director with MOQ Limited in the future. As a founding member of the organisation it has been an honour to watch Joe grow the business over the last 16 years. We wish him all the best in his future endeavours.”

All new appointments become effective 8 November 2021.
