Company of Connect Yorkshire EIR Martin Port, BigChange, a Leeds-based mobile workforce management platform, has appointed Mike Profit as a non-executive director.
He will provide strategic guidance to BigChange’s product and operational activities, and advise the company as it expands into new markets.
Profit brings more than 25 years of product and technology leadership experience gained at US-headquartered startups and blue-chip companies to BigChange’s board.

Profit said: “BigChange has established itself as a market leader for SME customers in several key sectors and is perfectly poised to expand in the UK and internationally.
“I am honoured to join BigChange’s board and be part of its innovation and growth strategies.”
Martin Port, BigChange founder and CEO, said: “It’s fantastic to appoint someone of Mike’s stature to BigChange’s management team.
“His experience building field service management and Software-as-a-Service businesses is hugely valuable for informing our technology strategy and achieving our global ambitions.”
