Further investment in talent continues as Emex appoints new VP of Technology Operations

Experienced and industry-respected technology lead, Michael Lazor, joins our executive team as we continue to expand.

We're thrilled to announce the appointment of Michael, to a newly created role as VP of Technology Operations and to our global leadership team. The move is part of our ambitious growth strategy aimed at disrupting the sustainability space in 2022.


Reporting to CEO Richard Wall, Michael brings over 25 years of experience in software engineering, development, and product innovation to Emex. He has worked in and advised businesses all over the world - most notably in the US, Europe, and the Middle East.


Prior to joining us, Michael founded Spline Software in 1996, growing the company into a world-leading software consultancy with over 100 staff and offices in Ukraine, the Netherlands, and Germany. Spline was then acquired by EPAM Systems in 2007.


Joining the team at EPAM Systems as Head of Delivery Processes, Michael spent the next 11 years problem solving for the some of the world’s biggest businesses including Barclays Capital, Canadian Tire, and many other Fortune 500 companies. This included pre-sale activities, recruitment, and team building, leading the core executive team, product delivery, lead conversion, and key client management. In 2018, Michael founded his second business, SPsoft, a boutique product development company, aimed at helping clients build out their product-based businesses. SPsoft continues to be a trusted tech partner to the world’s leading enterprises and start-ups alike.


At Emex, Michael will be responsible for building and leading the software development team, as well as helping us deliver a market-leading and disrupting sustainability data platform. A key focus for him will be building out our product design and management capabilities. Emex’s ultimate goal is to improve our clients’ and partners’ abilities to make informed, future-proofed decisions on their sustainability strategies.


Michael Lazor, VP of Technology Operations at Emex said, I want to impact how humanity preserves the world we are living in, by building the greatest tool, pushing it to market, and helping businesses manage their impact on the environment. I’m excited by the challenges of building a team that can deliver a market-leading product.”


Richard Wall, CEO at Emex commented, “Technology has the potential for tackling some of the greatest sustainability challenges of our time. In Michael, we have an exciting addition to our team who embodies a passion for helping business with their future problems and impact upon the world.”


Michael Lazor’s hire follows the appointment of four senior leads since September 2021 as part of our ambitious expansion plans: APAC & MENA CEO Sarah Saha, CRO Rich Waller, CMO Hugh Allspaugh, and Senior Biodiversity Officer Elodie Russier-Decoster. We're looking to continue growing our global team by more than 150 people this year.
