Business improvement consultancy Core29 has appointed Jaye Deighton as a director, recognising the outstanding contribution she has made to the development of the firm since joining in 2013.
Core29 founder and managing director Sarah Forbes said Ms Deighton’s rapid rise from junior project manager to her addition to the board as a director has been fuelled by her success in delivering results to clients and her leadership skills, which have been vital to the firm’s growth.
Ms Deighton, 31, leads a significant volume of Core29’s work with clients across the energy sector, including Ashtead Technology, PD&MS and Peterson Offshore Group.
Sarah Forbes said: “I first worked with Jaye in 2009 and after setting up Core29, being able to bring her into the company was an important step. I have always been impressed by her ability to bridge the gap between businesses and IT, and her focus on constantly developing new ways to improve ours and our clients’ business.
“I’m sure this appointment will come as no surprise to our clients, who see first-hand how committed she is to delivering results, leading and shaping so much of what we do on their behalf.”
The Aberdeen based consultancy helps businesses improve their operational efficiency by evaluating existing processes and systems before recommending solutions which increase profitability and provide clients with a competitive advantage.
Core29 also specialises in supporting businesses through major transactions by developing IT improvement strategies, programme delivery and progressive ICT review and diligence projects.
Jaye Deighton said: “I’m honoured to be appointed as director at Core29 which is such a dynamic and innovative business, and I’m incredibly happy to continue working with Sarah who has been a massive support to me throughout my career.
“At a time when so many oil and gas companies are facing the challenges of reducing costs to cope with sub $40 oil, we’re working harder than ever to find new ways to help them work as efficiently as possible and provide an unrivalled service to their customers.”
Ms Deighton graduated in Business Management from Robert Gordon University, and initially worked in the IT sector before joining Core29 in 2013.
Core29 has created a number of key innovations for industry including systems for paperless cargo management and reporting, shipping handling in offshore logistics, online customer engagement portals, and transitioning firms between outdated data and communications processes to more efficient systems which help them stand out from the competition.
