Ian Marchant Joins Linknode as NXD

Announcement of Non-Executive Director

Linknode are delighted to welcome Ian Marchant, one of the UK energy sector’s leading figures, to the company. Ian, who joins us as a Non-Executive director, was Chief Executive of SSE, one of the UK’s leading utility companies and Scotland’s largest industrial organisation for over ten years. He stepped down from that position in the summer of 2013.

At Linknode our business is at the convergence of mobile technology and environmental impact so we have a natural overlap with some of Ian’s interests. It was timely that the change in his availability, and his enthusiasm for all things digital, coincided with our visionary GIality technology development (VentusAR and HistoryLens) and that allowed the relationship to come together. As a rapidly growing and developing technical company we are constantly challenged with balancing the day-day and looking to the future. Ian is personable, highly qualified, respected and hugely experienced. His ability to offer time and a non-technical input into an IT company whilst fully understanding and communicating our interests provides a great balance and will bring great opportunities.

Ian has added his role with Linknode to a growing list of prominent positions which include Chair of Scotland’s 2020 Climate Group, President of the Energy Institute, Senior Independent Director of the John Wood Group and Vice-Chairman of Maggie’s Charity.
