Glasgow-based cloud computing firm Iomart Group announced the appointment of Lucy Dimes as non-executive chair of the company, with effect from its AGM on August 30, 2022.

“Lucy is an accomplished business leader having operated in senior executive positions in FTSE 100, FTSE 250 and private equity owned companies spanning telecoms, technology, business services and financial services,” said Iomart.

‘Lucy has substantial experience in complex, highly regulated international markets in product innovation, market entry, scaling for growth and expansion.

“Lucy also sits on the board of Babcock International Group plc, the c.£4bn turnover defence & aerospace group, and is an advisor to the automation and AI specialist software developer Intelygenz S.A.

“Lucy previously sat on the Berendsen plc board, a c.£1bn turnover textile services business, before it was acquired by Elis S.A. in 2017.

Lucy is passionate about technology, customer experience, diversity and sustainability.”

Dimes said: “The UK does not have many home grown technology businesses, and, over the last 20 years since its inception, Iomart has evolved to become one of the UK’s largest and most successful independent providers of managed cloud computing services.”

Iomart CEO Reece Donovan said: “We are delighted to welcome Lucy as the new chair of the board of Iomart.

“Her considerable experience and insight will be invaluable to us as we continue to pursue a successful growth strategy. I very much look forward to working with her in the future.”
