Meet our new Head of Product – Kris Clark

We're thrilled to announce that our Projects Coordinator Kris Clark is taking on a brand new role as SalamanderSoft's Head of Product for an exciting new product launching in 2023.

We’re thrilled to announce that our Projects Coordinator Kris Clark is taking on a brand new role as SalamanderSoft’s Head of Product for an exciting new product launching in 2023.

If you know us, you’ll know that we’ve spent over 15 years developing and delivering bespoke integration services that help schools automate user management on platforms like Micorosft 365,  Google Workspace and more from their MIS data.

We’re proud to say our Salamander Integration Suit supports more than 4,000 schools across the world, including 1/3 of secondary schools in England, helping teachers access the tools, apps and accounts they need to deliver quality learning to their students.

In 2023, we’re expanding our offering and developing a new product to help even more schools harness the power of automation.

“Our current solutions are supporting thousands of schools, but we feel we can offer more. Lots of schools still need help with automation and this investment into new solutions will help us support more schools in more sectors both in the UK and further afield,” says Jon Atkinson, Managing Director at SalamanderSoft.

Kris Clark, who has been working with Salamander for eight years, is heading up the new product team and is excited to be taking on a new challenge:

“This is completely different to anything we’ve ever done before. But new challenges keep me going. I like to take on new projects and expand my skill set,” he explains.

Before joining Salamander in 2015, Kris worked as an IT Technician in a High School and has witnessed first-hand the challenges that IT managers, school leadership teams and teachers face on a daily basis.

Kris has continued to build on his experience and knowledge since joining Salamander, first as a Support Consultant and later as our Projects Coordinator, overseeing our larger-scale projects with Multi Academy Trusts, Local Authorities and Governments.

“Working in education is challenging. Budgets are tight, and so is time. But one of my favourite things about this sector is the sense of togetherness, especially in the EdTech community,” Kris tells us.

“What we’re always trying to do is give the best we can to schools. And the new product we’re developing will help many more schools save time and money when managing user accounts.”

Keep your eyes peeled for updates on our new product on this blog, Twitter and LinkedIn.

Talk to a member of our team today to find out how we can support your school or trust with our Salamander Integration Suite that provides a quick and easy way for teachers and students to instantly access the tools they need to teach and learn.
