Ai is planning a complete rebrand of its image and offering, to drive its three year business growth strategy following its acquisition of a number of blue chip clients this year.
Cano-Lopez, who previously held the position of director of strategic development, will work with the newly appointed management board to help drive the business forward.
The new management team includes Simon Wright as operation director, Sarah Bainbridge as marketing director, Paul Birks as analysis director and Justin Manly as account director.
Ai has also appointed five new staff in the last month and expects to continue a significant recruitment drive over the next six months.
John Regan, executive board member, said: "Jon's tenacious and vibrant character makes him the ideal person to drive Ai forward to the next level and enable us to achieve our business growth potential over the next three years."
Cano-Lopez said: "This rebrand represents a strong repositioning for us in the marketplace and combined with a large portfolio of recent new wins and an extensive recruitment drive; Ai is a major player in the data industry."
