Resillion, the engineering and cybersecurity services firm, has appointed Yaron Kottler as its new executive chairman.
Yaron brings 20 years of industry expertise, most notably as a co-founder of quality engineering giant Qualitest. There, he was instrumental in developing and delivering a global growth strategy, including targeted acquisitions and development of strategic alliances.
Resillion, which started life as Edge Testing Solutions in Strathclyde Business Park, was bought by French business group Eurofins in 2018 and has since broken away. In addition to its global locations it has two Scottish offices, on West Nile Street in Glasgow and Mitchell Street in Edinburgh. UK managing director of Resillion, Sharon Hamilton, is also based in Scotland.
Along with his quality engineering expertise, Yaron was involved in several private equity transactions, both within Qualitest and other quality engineering companies. He also serves as a board advisor to several early-stage tech startups across industries including media, healthcare, and in the connected devices space.
Yaron commented: “In an IT services environment where it is often hard to differentiate, Resillion offers a unique set of capabilities across software, hardware, content and compliance. Along with real potential for industry disruption, this is what motivated my decision to join this dynamic company.”
Previous CEO, Dik Vos, will sit on the board as a non-executive director, collaborating with investors Stirling Square Capital Partners, a pan-European partner to mid-market businesses.
Julien Horreard, partner at Stirling Square Capital Partners, added: “Yaron’s vision for the business, fresh thinking, tenacity and passion brings significant benefits to Resillion’s clients.
“Through his business skills, unmatched expertise within quality engineering and ability to scale a company, we are confident in his international growth plans, and ability to attract and retain the very best talent.”
