Head of course delivery
Millar takes software role at CodeClan
As head of the instructional team, Kenny Millar will play a key role in the development and implementation of the curriculum at CodeClan and will oversee the organisation and resources of the instructional team.
Adam Bannon, who is acting CEO of CodeClan following the departure in June of Harvey Wheaton, said: “It is a coup for CodeClan to bring someone with Kenny’s reputation and experience on board.
“His background of working with some of the leading companies in the tech sector and introducing products to the market will be of benefit to our instructional team and students. We are working hard to provide a stream of talent to Scotland’s digital and tech sectors. By bringing in the highest quality of staff, we are providing students with access to experts who can pass on their industry knowledge.”
Mr Millar brings with him nearly 30 years experience spent in Scotland’s tech sector. A background in product innovation, software engineering and leadership, he was a senior software development manager at Amazon Development Centre in Edinburgh.
Previously, Mr Millar was director of software engineering at Cisco Systems, working with the company for 15 years, and launching products from inception to final design. Additionally, he was employed as the lead on the external engagement community of the Scotland Development Centre, where he built strong connections with the wider software and tech community.
Mr Millar said: “CodeClan is a great opportunity for students to start a new and exciting career in Scotland’s digital tech industry. It provides an alternative route for bringing in previously untapped talent from a variety of different experiences and backgrounds.”
