New Year, new MD as the Nexor story evolves
The dawn of a new era started today at Nexor, with the appointment of Andy Walker as our new Managing Director. He replaces Andrew Kays, who has been Managing Director for the past three years and who will be leaving the company at the end of March to set up his own business.
Chairman Steve Kingan commented:
“I’m delighted that we have been able to recruit such an established industry heavyweight as Andy Walker to the Nexor team. His wealth of experience will be a real asset for the company. This is part of the on-going evolution of the business rather than a revolution.
“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Andrew Kays for his contribution to Nexor over the last decade. In particular, for his guiding influence as MD over the last three years, which has seen the company firmly establish itself as a trusted supplier of information exchange solutions for organisations operating in high assurance environments.”
Andy Walker comes to Nexor from L-3 TRL where he played a key part in the company’s growth over the last 12 years.
During his time as Head of R&D, the company’s products received Queen’s Awards for both Innovation and Export. For the last 5 years, he has been focused on the rapid growth of the Cyber Defence Division, initially as Business Operations Director and more recently as CNI Business Director leading the move into the Critical National Infrastructure market.
Prior to joining L-3 TRL, Andy worked for the US Telco AT&T Business, leading the international team that transitioned their largest clients’ networks to AT&T management. He moved to AT&T after 16 years’ commissioned service in a variety of management roles within the British Army.
Andy is a Chartered Engineer with a Masters in Military Electronic System Engineering.
To help ensure the smooth transition, Andrew Kays will continue working at Nexor until the end of our financial year in March.
“Setting up my own business has been a long-held ambition of mine. From April, I will be focussing my efforts on the Cyber Security skills shortage, and bringing to market new innovative ways of addressing the capability gap.”
“I will look back fondly on my time here at Nexor. My main disappointment is not being here in what will be an exciting year ahead for the company.”
