HPC Wales CEO David Craddock stepped down this week after more than 30 years in international business.
Craddock become CEO in 2011. During his tenure, he drove over £3.1 million of inward investment into Wales, assisting over 140 companies and helping to create 23 business-led research projects.
It has been an absolute pleasure to work for HPC Wales over the past few years, from building the original business strategy, implementing it across Wales and beyond, and I wish the venture every success in the future,” said Craddock. “My goal in business has always been to overcome challenges – whether it is creating an advanced business plan or working internationally with people from different backgrounds and cultures, and we have achieved that so far in Wales.
HPC Wales will now be lead by interim CEO Sian Hope, who brings a wealth of expertise in systems integration and software engineering to HPC Wales, having previously led the development of the Centre for Advanced Software Technology (CAST) and as Director of the pan-Wales Research Institute in Visual Computing.
