Rob Cleghorn joins ClearPoint as CTO

ClearPoint is delighted to welcome back former ClearPointer, Rob Cleghorn, as Chief Technology Officer (CTO).

“Rob is a talented tech leader in the software industry leading large scale engineering teams in New Zealand and internationally. We are privileged that he has chosen to return to ClearPoint and we are excited to have his energy and experience join our Executive Leadership Team" says Bain Hollister, ClearPoint’s Co-founder and Technical Director. 

Globally, the technology industry is undergoing a fundamental platform shift towards Generative AI technology that will have a profound impact on product design, system architecture, and software engineering processes.  As industry thought leaders, ClearPoint are adept at assessing and adopting new technologies to create value to clients.

“Rob joins the team at a pivotal moment in the global adoption of Generative AI technology.  We are AI optimists and we are really excited for the changes in how we engineer and deliver solutions, and the subsequent productivity gains for our teams and clients,” adds Bain Hollister.

“Rob’s experience leading significant technology transformation initiatives will be key to supporting our market position and continued growth and innovation. Rob will be a key part of the thinking, challenging and innovating that we do to create client value.”

Rob brings a wealth of experience to the role, with over 25 years in software engineering, across all aspects from agile delivery to architecture, technical leadership, cloud computing and AI + ML technology.

Over the last 2.5 years, Rob has held the position of Director of Engineering at EROAD helping the organisation meld together two core systems whilst simultaneously modernising, addressing technical debt and delivering a raft of new features to customers. It has also been his passion to form high-performing teams while aligning people to clear visions and solving real-world problems. 

“I am excited to be returning to ClearPoint and working with our amazing people and clients, especially as the incredibly fast moving world of AI disrupts so many aspects of our lives” says Rob. “I believe that integrity, respect and how we work together is just as important as the work we do and I am proud to be part of an organisation that exemplifies that in our day-to-day.”

ClearPoint continues to be a market leading technology consultancy by seamlessly integrating strategy, design and technology to provide client value, and with Cleghorn onboard, a key focus will be to support the company with its ongoing growth.
