The cyber security services company, Bridewell Consulting, has appointed Paul Driver, pictured, as non-executive chairman.
Set up in 2013, Bridewell is a privately-owned, UK cyber security company, with 75 per cent year-on-year revenue growth since 2018. Based in Reading, with offices in London and Newport, the company has projections for 50pc customer growth in 2021. The company says that the appointment is part of a five-year growth strategy, having recently secured a multi-million investment from Growth Capital Partners to expand into new markets.
Having worked closely with other private equity backed firms, Driver co-founded and expanded the project consultancy company, Pcubed, while also holding Chairman and Director roles at companies such as InfinityWorks and Chaucer Consulting.
Driver says: “Bridewell is one of the fastest growing UK cyber security companies and I’m excited to play a key role in its next phase of growth. Cyber security has never been more important and it is expert consultancies, like Bridewell, who are best-placed to help customers to protect their business-critical applications and data. I look forward to the evolution of the company’s managed security services portfolio as it further strengthens its position in the security market, both in the UK and overseas.”
Anthony Young, co-CEO of Bridewell, says: “Paul brings a level of expertise and experience that will prove invaluable as we continue to grow in both customers and staff. It’s a very exciting time for our business with the recent investment from GCP, and to have Paul on board helping drive that next phase really makes him the perfect addition to the team.”
And Scott Nicholson, co-CEO, adds: “Paul’s track record in leading and consulting technology-driven businesses speaks for itself.”
