Bespoke software development consultancy Scott Logic has appointed a new General Manager to the growing business.
Nigel Wilson joins the firm in the newly created role to lead day to day operations across all four of its city centre locations, and drive further expansion of the business, which has seen its headcount grow to almost 200 in its 10-year history.
Nigel has a career spanning more than 20 years in the IT industry in technical and leadership roles, most recently as Head of Delivery with IT consultancy BJSS where he managed a £70m delivery portfolio and led development of Agile methodologies and quality processes.
Speaking about his appointment, Nigel said: “This is an incredibly exciting time to be joining Scott Logic. I’ve been very impressed by the high calibre of all the people I’ve met so far in the business and the quality of the work consistently delivered.
“A huge amount has been achieved in Scott Logic’s first 10 years and there is clearly huge potential to grow further.”
Nigel will be primarily based at the firm’s London office, where considerable growth is expected through the development of more on-site consultancy and advisory services, to complement the off-site delivery work that has proved so successful since the premises opened two years ago.
Nigel also plans to spend a significant period of his time each month at the Newcastle, Edinburgh and Bristol offices. He added:
“The market for high quality, UK-based delivery remains strong, particularly for organisations such as Scott Logic. The depth of knowledge in the business around Agile methods of working, user experience design and software engineering is excellent; and what’s really great at Scott Logic is the level of investment in research and development around emerging technologies, for example Blockchain and conversational commerce.”
This latest appointment highlights the continued expansion of the business and its ongoing commitment to develop the services offered to its growing client base, as well as career opportunities for its staff.
Scott Logic’s Managing Director Gary Scott added: “The quality of our service is defined by our people, and Scott Logic is committed to attracting candidates of the highest calibre to join us in all areas of the business.
“Nigel’s appointment exemplifies this commitment; he brings a huge amount of valuable experience to the company and is the perfect person to lead our consultancy business into its next exciting chapter of growth.”
