Causeway Bay, Hong Kong -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/18/2017 -- Blackmore Consulting have today announced that Daniel Hearns has been named the company's newest Chief Technology Officer.
Hearns, who has been with Blackmore since 2010, had previously started the company in a low-level administrative position. Through his persistent hard work, unwaivering dedication and an uncanny ability to absorb knowledge, he has risen through the ranks at Blackmore Consulting at an almost meteoric rate.
Daniel will be taken under the wing by Rick Garlington, the firm's current CTO, who has made the decision to retire to the Maldives with his wife and adopted son Sam after 15 years with Blackmore in Hong Kong.
David Blackmore, the company's Owner and CEO, released a statement regarding both Mr Garlington's retirement and Mr Hearns' appointment.
"It is a day of extremely mixed emotions for both me personally and everyone at Blackmore Consulting. On one hand, Rick has been an integral part of our core team here at Blackmore, an absolute asset to this firm. His focus and enthusiasm has pulled us through some difficult times over the years, for example in 2008 during the global financial crisis. He was a trusted confidante of my late father David Blackmore, the founder of this progressive and innovative financial firm. He will be sorely missed and his absence will be difficult to swallow."
"On the other hand, Daniel's progression through the ranks of this company have been impressive to say the least. He has made himself an integral part of our management team and the decision to appoint him as our next Chief Technology Officer is absolutely congruous with our objectives of becoming the leading financial advisory firm in Hong Kong. We have a bright future ahead of us, that I am sure of. Our most recent private client drive has been the most successful in our esteemed history and Daniel was extremely influential toward that success. The transition period will be smooth and Rick has kindly offered to be on hand as proxy for Daniel for the foreseeablle future. Long may we prosper."
