Mobica Appoints New CEO Amid Cognizant Acquisition

Software firm Mobica has appointed Gary Butters as CEO, building on success and fuelling continued growth following its acquisition by Cognizant last year

Global software and engineering provider Mobica has announced Gary Butters as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO), as the company continues to be integrated into its parent company Cognizant.

Butters joined Mobica as its Chief Revenue Officer (CRO) in November 2020 and as part of outgoing CEO Sam Kingston’s leadership team helped deliver significant success for the organisation, leading to Mobica’s acquisition by Cognizant in March 2023

This acquisition aims to significantly expand Cognizant’s IoT embedded software engineering capabilities as part of its overall strategy to help companies modernise technology, reimagine processes and transform experiences so they stay ahead in a fast-changing world.

“Mobica's strong track record of delivering strategic embedded software engineering services is well-aligned to Cognizant's Global 2000 client base and key industries, while its large presence in Poland significantly enhances our growing development teams in Eastern Europe,” Annadurai Elango, Executive Vice President of Cognizant's Core Technologies and Insights said at the time. “We believe combining Mobica's expertise with Cognizant's strong IoT and product engineering capabilities will result in enhanced digital transformation outcomes for global clients in the technology and automotive industries and beyond.”

Mobica, which is headquartered in Manchester UK, with operations in Europe and the US, provides world-class software engineering and development expertise to many of the most recognised global brands. Founded in 2004, it serves a number of sectors, with particular expertise in the automotive, manufacturing, industrial and semiconductor industries. 

Mobica's services span the full software development cycle, with core competencies in development, implementation, testing and deployment of embedded software, and a specialization in clients' strategic internal research and development projects.

In his role as CEO, Butters will continue Mobica’s vision of delivering exceptional value and innovation to its clients and customers, while spearheading its growth plan as demand for engineering and software expertise continues to rise.

“Over the past few years, Mobica has seen demand for our world-class engineering increase significantly, particularly with the acceleration in AI and machine learning,” Butters explains. “This has seen some of the once ‘traditional’ industries such as automotive and manufacturing undergo a radical transformation.

“As a result, companies are increasingly seeking skilled professionals - particularly in areas such as software development, AI, IoT, and data analytics - in order to stay competitive and meet evolving customer expectations. However, they are vying for a limited pool of technology talent, so access to Mobica engineering services has been vital to enable our customers to remain agile in a rapidly evolving landscape.

“Our ongoing growth is a testament to our team of dedicated ‘Mobicans’ and our unwavering dedication to delivering cutting-edge software engineering solutions. We have consistently provided clients with access to top-tier engineering talent, enabling them to drive digital transformation and achieve their business objectives. I am looking forward to working with our talented team as we continue our ambitious growth plans.”
