We are delighted to announce that Microtech Group has appointed three new members to join the Board of Directors, Paul Mathewson (Group Technical Director), Anne Young (Financial Director) and Nick Fernando (Commercial Director).
Microtech transitioned to an Employee Ownership Trust [EOT] in 2021, declining many competitive offers in order to secure the continued operation of the business in Scotland, and maintain job security for employees.
Following on from the Employee Ownership transition, Microtech has appointed Paul Mathewson, Anne Young and Nick Fernando to manage, coordinate and supervise the business activities of the company, with Chris McMail maintaining his position as Managing Director.
Microtech started out in 1986 as a professional IT Support and Maintenance company based in the West of Scotland and now has an extensive customer and contracts base, including a long-standing partnership with NHS Scotland.
With sustained and continuous growth, Microtech is one of the largest Professional IT Support and Maintenance Companies in Scotland, with over 40-staff, including a full-time fully staffed service desk with field engineers based throughout Scotland and the UK.
Following the EOT transition, Microtech has great ambitions for 2022/2023, developing innovative solutions and technology for IT Support and Healthcare while continuing to provide excellent value and support to customers.
“I am delighted to have been asked to join the Board of Directors at Microtech Group.
This is such an exciting period for the team of employees as we transition to an Employee Ownership Trust [EOT].
Myself, along with the Board of Directors will now be a part of the development and the future success of the organisation, where we will have a real sense of ownership and accountability in how the company evolves.
I look forward to working closely with the trustees and hope we can continue to grow and develop Microtech - building on the successful brand that Chris McMail (Managing Director) has created, and heavily invested his time in over the last 35 years.”
“Following Microtech’s recent transition to an Employee Ownership Trust [EOT] in 2021, I am delighted to have joined the newly formed Board of Directors.
Now is a very exciting time to be involved in Microtech Group as the business evolves and prepares for the future.
I have been with Microtech Group for 6 years, playing a key role in daily operations and service delivery, as well as several major projects and acquisitions. I’m looking forward to taking on additional responsibilities as well as working closely with fellow members of the board to ensure the business progresses from strength to strength.“

“I am delighted to be joining the recently formed Board of Directors at Microtech Group. This is an exciting time for our organisation as it starts to evolve following its transition to an Employee Ownership Trust. Alongside the other newly appointed Board members and the trustees, I look forward to further developing the Microtech brand, that Managing Director Chris McMail has so successfully established.
I have enjoyed my role as the Commercial Director at Microtech Group since I joined 18 months ago. I have 20 years global executive experience in both the healthcare and IT defence sectors, and I am very much looking forward to utilising my skill set and playing an important part in the future successes of our company, working together with my fellow Board members.”
“I wish to thank Paul Mathewson, Anne Young and Nick Fernando for their acceptance in joining the Board of Directors at Microtech Group.
Over the last 35-years, myself together with the support of the team have grown the company to become one of the largest independent and market-leading IT Support and Health companies in Scotland.
It is vital that we maintain strong relationships with our clients and continue to create new opportunities with customers and business partners.
Between the talented and loyal employees of Microtech and the new Board of Directors, I have no doubt the business will continue to prosper.
