He is also a NED at Alternative Investment Market (AIM) listed The Pebble Group plc and at the privately owned Lodestone Communications, as well as being a Senior Advisor to Houlihan Lokey.

Joining Altia, Stuart’s board roles will be complemented by his extensive corporate finance background, having served as a Partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers and as a Managing Director at GCA Altium.

As Chair, Stuart will support the company’s senior leadership team in implementing growth across the company, leveraging his expertise in market analysis and strategic planning.

Additionally, he will be instrumental in helping the company to expand its market presence and solidify its position as an industry leader.

Specialising in cutting-edge solutions for digital forensics and intelligence, and leveraging advanced technologies, Altia provides software tools and services to law enforcement, intelligence agencies, and corporate entities.

Rob Sinclair, CEO, Altia said, “Stuart’s experience in corporate finance and his successful track record across various leadership roles is simply second to none. He will be an invaluable addition to Altia.

“Stuart’s expert guidance will be vital as we continue to deliver on our growth plans which will further position the company as the UK’s leading investigation software provider.

“At Altia we want to deliver the best possible products and service, as well as developing a culture which empowers all our employees to thrive. That means we must seek out the best and Stuart ticks all the boxes as we look to continue our ambitious plans moving forward.”
