Keepler Data Tech appoints former IBM leader as part of rapid growth and international expansion


Keepler Data Tech, the European advanced data analytics company, has appointed Sean Poulley as its Chief Operating Officer.

Poulley’s appointment comes at a time of rapid growth for the organisation. Since its launch in 2018, Keepler has consistently expanded its business with the intention of delivering greater impact for its customers.

Much of this growth has been achieved during the pandemic period. Through 2020 and 2021, year-on-year revenues increased by 30%, with growth doubling to 60% last year.   

In September 2022, Keepler launched in the UK, having since added eight new clients to its portfolio to bring its total to 26. Last year also saw a 40% growth in headcount, making the company’s workforce now more than 180 strong.

A major responsibility for Poulley in his new role will be to continue driving this growth momentum forwards. Specifically, he is responsible for enabling the company's expansion in alignment with its culture and values, optimising revenue and operations, elevating employee engagement and evolving the company’s services portfolio.  

During his career, he has held multiple executive product and services leadership roles and has consistently delivered transformational change and growth. This includes a highly influential tenure within IBM’s multi-billion-dollar data and analytics portfolio, as well as building and serving at the world’s leading ‘born in the cloud’ adoption services company, Cloudreach.  

Juan Aramburu, CEO, Keepler Data Tech, commented: “Sean has a proven track record and has dedicated his career to delivering excellence across technical organisations and products, making him the perfect fit. Last year was an important year for us and we are now well-positioned to start building Keepler 2.0. We’re excited to bring Sean on board as we embark on this next critical phase in our journey.” 

Sean Poulley, Chief Operating Officer, Keepler Data Tech, added: “I am delighted to join a fantastically talented team and play a role in writing the next chapter in Keepler’s fast-moving story. My job is to make sure the potential within the business is maximised to the fullest extent, which in turn will deliver outstanding value to a growing pool of customers around the world.”
