Sir Colin said: “Throughout my career I’ve witnessed the impacts that increasing inter-dependency has on people’s ability to manage operations, deliver projects, mitigate risks and control costs and I would certainly have welcomed having the capabilities BOXARR brings to make effective decisions. I’m excited to be joining BOXARR and helping customers across all sectors effectively manage this significant and growing challenge.”

“We are honoured that Sir Colin shares our vision for the future, and welcome him to our team.” said BOXARR’s CEO, Alasdair Pettigrew, “During his extensive career in the RAF and as a leader of industry, he’s had personal experience of the increasing challenges organisations face in effectively combatting inter-dependency and its associated risks. So it is significant that a person of his formidable experience has not only validated BOXARR being of unique capability and value, but also agreed to join our mission to empower organisations to manage their burgeoning complexity.”
