New appointments at Topolytics
Edinburgh-based firm announces four key appointments to drive long-term growth
WASTE technology solutions specialist Topolytics have strengthened their management team with four new appointments, as the company continues its ambitious growth plans on the back of a successful 2019/20.
A business leader with extensive senior management and board experience, Michael Lloyd joins Topolytics as chief product officer, having held roles previously with leading AIM-listed healthcare software provider Craneware and Scottish tech start-ups such as Qikserve and SnapDragon-IP.
Topolytics have appointed Chris Greening as new head of engineering, who brings more than 26 years of experience in the tech industry, many of which were in senior leadership positions in a number of sectors including mobile telecoms, e-commerce and mobile app development.
Michael Antczak has been promoted to senior front-end software engineer, after contracting with Topolytics and having studied and worked at the University of Edinburgh.
Kenneth Porter joins Topolytics as a data scientist. He holds an Environmental Science PhD and has worked in environmental regulation before joining TVSquared, a leading TV analytics business where he worked on a range of data science projects.
All four new appointments are crucial in driving the company forward, with plans in place to expand the team further during 2021.
The expansion comes after recent UK and global success. Topolytics have been working with DEFRA to use ‘WasteMap’ and create a digital waste regulation system for the UK – monitoring, tracking and analysing the hundreds of millions of regulated waste movements, including construction and demolition, around the country each year.
Dr Michael Groves (pictured), chief executive officer of Topolytics, said: ‘I am absolutely delighted that we have been able to attract four strong and experienced professionals to the business. They will play a vital role in moving the company forward as we take WasteMap and associated analytics into new markets globally.’
