Brightsolid boosts tech team with two heavyweight appointments

Brightsolid, Scotland’s leading managed hybrid cloud services provider, has today announced the appointment of Andy Sinclair as its new CTO and David Taylor as Head of Cyber Security. 

As a new CTO, Andy brings over a decade of technology experience in engineering, architecture and cloud transformation. Most recently, Andy 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 growth phase. I was drawn by the opportunity to deliver a compelling managed cloud solution to the market, but what stood out to me was Brightsolid’s incredible internal culture, which places such high value on our people and our relationships with customers.” 

New Head of Cyber Security, David Taylor’s career started in the military, where he spent ten years managing communications and information systems onboard Britain’s nuclear submarines. For the past decade, David has built and managed Security Operations Centres, secured cloud and on-premises infrastructure, and conducted information security and compliance audits. 

David is also looking forward to his role in Brightsolid’s future: “As well as a market-leading MDR product Brightsolid has an amazing culture, which I am very excited to be part of. I can’t wait to work with the team to develop our managed cyber security offering further 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: “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.”
