Onclusive welcomes Bernd Stangl as Chief Financial Officer

Bernd Stangl joins Onclusive following the departure of former CFO, Matthew Piercy

Today, Onclusive announces the appointment of Bernd Stangl as Chief Financial Officer. It follows the resignation of former CFO Matthew Piercy who has decided to pursue new opportunities.

Bernd brings to Onclusive a wealth of experience, with 25 years in prominent financial leadership roles in the B2B telecommunications hardware, software and cloud-based services industry. 

Prior to Onclusive he was the CFO for eight years of software and communications company Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise (ALE)  where he transformed the company post carve-out from Nokia into a highly efficient organization recognized with several awards as a benchmark of digital transformation. This preceded his tenure in senior business and financial positions at B2B service and software providers Infovista and Respaid.

His appointment follows the departure of Matthew Piercy who, after two years in the CFO role, has decided to step down. During his tenure, Matthew oversaw the exit and stand up of Onclusive from its previous ownership, as well as the establishment of new financial infrastructure across the business. His contributions included the implementation of advanced back-office systems, streamlined processes and the recruitment of new talent across the finance team globally.

Announcing the news, Rob Stone, CEO, commented:

“Bernd will build on the solid foundations laid by Matthew as we continue investing in the future of media intelligence. Now more than ever, PR, communications and marketing professionals require real-time, trusted, comprehensive insights to help them prove and improve their value. I’m proud of the continued transformation we’re undertaking to ensure we can meet our customers’ needs in a highly competitive market. Similarly to his predecessor, I have every confidence Bernd brings the expertise and experience to enable us to continue on our exciting journey.”

Rob Stone added:

“We extend our thanks to Matthew for his significant contribution to Onclusive during a time of notable change and transition. With his leadership, we have stabilised the business, ready for the next phase of our journey.”

Bernd, an Austrian native fluent in three languages, will be based in Onclusive’s Paris office. He commences his role immediately, and will be supported by Matthew over the coming month to ensure a smooth transition.
