Capsule announces new CEO

I’m pleased to announce that Steven Ledgerwood has joined Capsule as our new CEO.

It’s been a fantastic journey since we launched Capsule in 2009. I’m grateful to have led the team through this period, and very proud of what the team has achieved. I’ll continue as a director and advisor to the business.

Steve, our new CEO, joins at an exciting time. We founded Capsule because we wanted to create an easy to use CRM that enabled businesses to get started in minutes not months. With the acquisition and integration of our marketing tool Transpond in 2022, Capsule now also offers that same easy to use approach and fast start for marketing. We’ve also recently added project management functionality, making Capsule a single platform that supports all departments in a business, from customer management and sales through to marketing and project management.

Steve joins us from FINDOLOGIC where he was Chief Revenue Officer. He brings 20 years of experience in sales, marketing and customer success, and most of that in technology businesses. His background and skill set makes him a great fit as Capsule continues its journey to the forefront of CRM, sales and marketing tools.

Steve adds “It’s an exciting time to be in the CRM space, particularly for SME’s where Capsule is well placed. It is really easy to use and built with advanced functionality but with a simplified approach so that users can maximise the value quickly. I have a huge amount of respect for the founders, who have built a people-first culture, with a high performing team and an impressive global footprint with very happy customers. It’s a fantastic time to be joining this company and I’m looking forward to leading the organization into the next chapter of growth.”

Over the next few months Steve will be working alongside me to ensure a smooth handover. I’m excited to see Steve take the business forward as our CEO.
