Current chief executive of Dimension Data Brett Dawson is stepping down after 12 years with the business.

Jason Goodall, current Group COO will replace Dawson as CEO, effective immediately.

“Brett has delivered extraordinary growth for our company over the last 12 years, quadrupling our revenues to $8bn, helped us globalise and led our transition into being part of the NTT family,” says Jeremy Ord, executive chairman of the Dimension Data Group.

“Whilst this journey is far from over, I'm extremely grateful for the leadership, passion and energy that Brett has brought to our organisation,” he says.

Goodall has served several roles during his 18-year career a Dimension Data, and most recently held the role as Group COO where he was responsible for the regions and several global functions including sales karting, Group Information Services (GIS), HR and commercial finance.

“We see many opportunities for growth across both the Dimension Data Group as well as the wider NTT Group,” Goodall says.

“I'm excited about the opportunities in front of us, to continue to build our winning culture, to accelerate the ambitions of our clients, our people and the communities we operate in.

“I'm honoured and thrilled to be stepping up to this opportunity and look forward to working with our clients, partners and employees in the near future,” he says.
