Board appointments

To help steer the next phase of growth, Filament has appointed two industry veterans onto its Board:

Duncan Mcintyre specialises in building growth companies. He is currently working with a number of technology and engineering companies. Previously Duncan built Morse PLC into an international quoted market leader with a turnover of over £500m. He then was the Chairman of the team which built Monitise PLC, a mobile banking and payments company, from concept to a market-leading business. He has since worked successfully as an advisor, director and Chairman to a number of companies. McIntyre comments: “Filament has a fantastic opportunity to rapidly grow both its consultancy and software products business over the next few years and I am delighted to be joining the Board at this exciting time.”

Mark Goodyear spent 24 years as a CTO and Senior Partner in Accenture, also holding technology leadership positions for the DHSS and Tesco. He is one of the founders and a board member of the highly successful challenger consultancy Elixirr. Mark provides strategy and IT advice to large enterprises, small companies and startups. Mark added: “I’m delighted to be joining the Filament team on this next stage of their journey. They have created the foundation for a long term AI product-centric company with strong links to AI research in the top institutions in the world. I look forward to helping them succeed.”
