World leader in remote aerial inspection and survey, Cyberhawk Innovations, has appointed David McIntyre as Chief Financial Officer.
An experienced CFO and chartered accountant, David has held a number of positions in listed, multinational and start-up companies prior to his appointment at Cyberhawk. Most recently David was Finance Director for Maintenance Management Limited, a Private equity-backed business service company, where he helped to significantly increase shareholder value. David has also held posts as Director of Finance and Operations for Diageo/United Distillers, CFO – EMEA & Asia Pacific for Dialog Corporation (part of Thomson Reuters Group) and Group Financial Controller for Kwik-Fit Group.
David joins the senior management team at Cyberhawk at a time of substantial global growth and international expansion, following a £1.3 million investment from Scottish Equity Partners and the Scottish Investment Bank 18 months ago.
Cyberhawk’s CEO, Craig Roberts said: “David’s appointment comes on the back of a very successful two years where we’ve continued to drive the market and innovate, with sales and headcount increasing three-fold over the period. We have also opened two offices overseas and launched “iHawk” our first software product.
“I’m delighted to welcome David to the team, his expertise in high growth private-equity backed companies and international expansion will be invaluable as we continue to drive the business forward.”
David McIntyre said: “I’m looking forward to taking up this position with Cyberhawk. The company has grown quickly in the short time since its inception, and its innovative solution to inspections and surveys is being rapidly adopted around the globe. This is an exciting opportunity for me to be part of a dynamic senior management team focussed on growing the business.“
Established in 2008 and recognised as the world leader in the field, Cyberhawk led the development of the industrial ROAV service industry and has achieved over 25 world firsts - including the first ever industrial ROAV inspection. Combining ROAVs, the most highly trained pilots in the industry, engineering and survey experts and agile software development, the company delivers powerful management information that enables customers to make informed decisions about their assets. Cyberhawk’s ROAV solutions are faster, safer and more cost effective than traditional approaches and often include “live” asset inspection that enables its customers to keep their assets running rather than shutting them down, often saving millions of pounds. Cyberhawk has completed projects for the “big six” energy companies in the UK and all six oil and gas supermajors, conducting inspections and surveys on electricity networks, power stations, oil and gas sites, and wind farms throughout Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
