GrowthOps CEO Jason Polson steps down after three months in the role

By Paige Murphy | 21 January 2020

Jason Polson, CEO of Trimantium GrowthOps Australia and New Zealand, has stepped down from the role after just three months.

Polson was appointed CEO following a major shake-up of its executive board and leadership team last year.

A spokesperson confirmed his departure today.

Prior to his time as CEO, Polson was the group director, creative at AJF Partnership which was acquired by GrowthOps in 2017.

GrowthOps rolled out up to 60 redundancies across its business in the second half of last year with the chief technology officer and chief culture officer among those to depart.

The redundancies followed a restructure of the company's board which saw GrowthOps founder and executive director, Phillip Kingston transition to a non-executive director, the addition of six new board members and the retirement of three others.

Shares for the technology consulting group soared today following the announcement of Polson's departure.

GrowthOps shares were up 65% to $0.19 at the close of the day's trading on the ASX. But the shares are still more than 80% down over the last 12 months

This week, it also announced it would spin off its Salesforce Einstein practice after a year of incubation. 

The business will now operate independently under the name of Lightfold.
