Chris Maclean has succeeded his father, Allan, as CEO of Maclean Computing.
A statement from the company says Allan Maclean’s recent 65th birthday “was a perfect time to make this transition”.
Maclean Computing was founded in 1993 by Allan and Kevin Maclean and has since grown into an organisation with 72 staff, thanks partly to the acquisition of ATL Systems last year.
Chris Maclean joined the firm in 2007 from IBM. He has also worked for start-up Ascentia (which was acquired by IBM) and MessageLabs.
Allan Maclean will become chairman.
According to the statement, “Chris will assume day-to-day responsibility for Maclean Computing, with Allan continuing to be involved in the overall strategic planning and governance, and taking responsibility for specific internal projects”.
