Justin Mercer has been named the new chief executive of Jade Software, effective immediately, the company announced.

Charlotte Walshe who joined Jade in 2017, resigned in February this year, with Mercer stepping in as the interim chief executive.

Mercer ran Jade Software in Australia, before becoming the company's Director of Customer.

He is an 11-year veteran of Jade, and his appointment was fully endorsed by the company's board, chair person Sue Suckling said.

Suckling added that Mercer has played a significant part in Jade's digital transformation journey, and been a strong voice of the customer for many years, ensuring the company is fully focused on innovation and delivering cost-effective solutions that provide exceptional value.

Jade Software develops enterprise software such as the Jade Platform, Jade Digital, along with the ThirdEye anti-money laundering solution.

Founded in 1978 by Gil Simpson who devised the Pascal-like JADE object-oriented programming framework, the company was acquired by the UK-based Skipton Group in 2017.

The company counts The Warehouse Group, Fonterra, Zurich, TAL, Monmouthshire Building Society, DB Cargo, InvestNow and Fexco Pacific as customers.

It has around 280 staff, mostly in Christchurch and also in Auckland, Dunedin, Sydney, and York in Britain.
