READING, UK / ACCESSWIRE / August 19, 2020 / CloudFactory, a global leader in managed workforce solutions for artificial intelligence (AI), today announced that John Cotterell has joined its board of directors.
Cotterell is a technology industry veteran and CEO of Endava, a U.K.-based consultancy that works with organizations to design, build, operate, and support scalable, secure platforms with intelligent user experiences. He has worked with the world's leading finance, retail, technology, and media companies to help them build a wide range of technology solutions - from platforms that process e-commerce payments to those that provide community for people living with cancer.
Cotterell will use his deep experience in disruptive technology leadership to support CloudFactory's continued growth as the company continues to deliver on its mission of providing meaningful work for one million people in the developing world.

"I grew up in Kenya, so I know the impact of CloudFactory's work toward its mission, to create a million jobs in developing economies and invest in the people in those jobs," said Cotterell.
