In line with the company’s plans for growth and development Ghyston are pleased to announce a restructure of their top-tier management. Emily Hill has now been promoted to Chief Executive Officer and will take on overall management of the Ghyston team. Dan Phipps has been promoted to Chief Operations Officer and will share leadership responsibilities.

Emily brings a wealth of experience having enjoyed a long career in tech. Previously she worked for Softwire as a developer, technical consultant and project manager and moved to Bristol in 2012 with husband Ric Hill to open Softwire West. In September 2017, with Ric, she co-founded Ghyston.

She is very much looking forward to applying her in-depth knowledge of development and her passion for excellent client service to lead the team in delivering the highest quality software.

Emily said “Ghyston is a unique place to work, I am very proud to now be CEO. I am extremely keen to continue developing our culture which is incredibly supportive resulting in the best people in tech wanting to work here”.

Emily’s promotion puts her amongst the most influential women in tech in the UK; she hopes that this will help to attract more females to the industry and to Ghyston.

Emily replaces husband Ric Hill who will retain his involvement as Chair of the board.
