Parrimark Technology founder Michael Scroop has stepped up his role at the event industry software company, taking on the role of executive chairman.

Scroop's move from the managing director post is part of an internal board restructure designed to boost the company's business internationally, and includes the Asia-Pacific general manager James Pegum becoming chief executive, with a remit to manage the overall company.

Scroop will work with Pegum to oversee operational activities including project planning and development delivery, sales, and market research. He retains overall responsibility for Parrimark and aims to drive sustainable development of the company.

Scroop stepped down from his post on the Meetings Industry Association board in July to focus on Parrimark.

"Formalising the board structure and appointing several non-executive directors will provide perspective and experience in areas of strategic importance to Parrimark," said Scroop.
