Hasani has 25 years‘ experience as a technologist across a wide range of industries. He joins Aventum from Simply Business where he was CTO for the last five years.

Hasani commented: “Aventum has a palpable ambition to do things differently. I was attracted by its people, its winning culture, and its belief that anything is possible. My expertise is leveraging technology to take businesses to the next level, and that is exactly what I plan to do at Aventum. We have a great foundation and an entrepreneurial culture that’s focussed on delivering value for its clients and its people. We are already moving at pace to do things even better and I look forward to seeing our vision come to fruition in the months ahead.”
