Leading Scottish managed hybrid cloud services provider Brightsolid has announced the appointment of two new senior hires to support the company’s next phase of growth.

Andy Sinclair joins the Dundee-headquartered firm as its new chief technology officer with David Taylor joining as head of cyber security. 

As new CTO, Andy brings over a decade of technology experience spanning engineering, architecture and cloud transformation. Most recently, he was director of product at iomart and he’s excited about the potential he sees at Brightsolid.

“I’m thrilled to join Brightsolid as it enters its next phase of growth,” he says. “I was drawn by the opportunity to deliver a compelling managed cloud solution to the market, but what really stood out to me was Brightsolid’s incredible internal culture, which places such high value on our people and our relationships with customers.” 

David Taylor’s career started in the military where he spent 10 years managing communications and information systems onboard Britain’s nuclear submarines.

For the past decade he has been building and managing Security Operations Centres, securing cloud and on-premises infrastructure, and conducting information security and compliance audits. 

“As well as a market-leading MDR product, Brightsolid has an amazing culture which I am very excited to be part of,” he says. “I can’t wait to work with the team to further develop our managed cyber security offering while continuing to deliver our fantastic levels of customer service.” 

Elaine Maddison, Brightsolid’s CEO, sees the two appointments as a key part of the MSP’s strategy: 

She said: “I’m absolutely delighted that both Andy and Dave have decided to join Brightsolid. We want to attract the best talent out there and that’s exactly what we’ve done here. We’re an ambitious business and both Andy and Dave bring unrivalled expertise and experience to drive our growth plans.”
