KAREN Meechan has been appointed CEO of ScotlandIS, the membership and cluster management organisation for Scotland’s digital technologies industry, following her successful role as Interim CEO over the past eight months.
Karen took up the role of Interim CEO earlier this year and has served in the organisation for over 17 years as Head of Operations and latterly as Chief Operating Officer. She has been intrinsic to the delivery of many of ScotlandIS’s programmes, events, partnerships and funding opportunities. Alison McLaughlin, Chair of ScotlandIS, said: “Few know Scotland’s digital technology sector better than Karen. She has worked incredibly hard behind the scenes at ScotlandIS and fully understands the organisation’s strengths and abilities. She has been a huge asset to the organisation over the years and her promotion to CEO of ScotlandIS is richly deserved. I look forward to working with Karen to continue to strengthen and deliver opportunities for Scotland’s burgeoning tech sector.”
