New role for IT specialist
Unicorn driver McLaren joins Cognitive board
IT specialist Eileen McLaren, who helped the unicorn businesses Skyscanner and FanDuel scale from startup to global success, has joined the board of another startup.
She joined Edinburgh-based Cognitive Geology as its VP of software engineering in July last year and from this month she has been promoted to chief operating officer (COO) and takes a seat on the board.
Ms McLaren said: “I see it as one of the most exciting early stage tech businesses in Scotland at the moment.
“I’ve been fortunate enough to have worked at some of the most successful tech companies around and the planning, drive and the quality of the execution I see at Cognitive Geology has the same hallmarks I saw in the early days at Skyscanner and FanDuel.”
