New appointment to bolster new service offerings and identify cross-partnership opportunities with Eurofins’ companies, as part of the software testing firm’s nationwide growth strategy

ONE of the UK’s fastest-growing and largest independent software testing companies, Edge Testing Solutions, part of Eurofins Digital Testing, has appointed Neil Cameron as Head of Technical Services – a new role created as part of the company’s nationwide expansion strategy.

Originally from Dundee in Scotland, Neil will be based in Edge Testing’s Birmingham office. Reporting directly to Technical Testing Director, Dan Martland, Neil will be pivotal in building Edge Testing’s technical testing team and expanding the Digital Test Hub (DTH) portfolio with additional service offerings.

Neil previously worked for IBM in Australia, New York and Hong Kong, building and running testing centres globally, and managing teams of up to 1,700 testers. He had worked with Edge Testing’s former CEO and co-founder Brian Ferrie previously. After returning to the UK from a decade working in Australia, Neil was impressed by the success and continued growth of Edge Testing, following his former colleague handing the reigns over to Sharon Hamilton, Managing Director.

Commenting on his appointment, Neil said: “Having worked with most of the senior team at Edge Testing before, I already knew and valued the company’s ethos of teamwork and exceptional client service. Edge Testing has grown exponentially over the last few years, with Birmingham and Manchester offices providing regional hubs for clients across England.”

Neil’s plans include the transformation of Edge Testing’s Managed Testing Services – adding services to the portfolio that will enable the team to take on more complex consultancy-based testing projects.

“As testing continues to move away from the waterfall methodology, to cloud, DevOps and agile, our clients are increasingly demanding a fully outsourced testing service throughout a project’s lifecycle. My focus will be building our team further and using our DTH’s reputation to provide higher-value services. My aim is to take our progress so far to the next level. In my new role, I will lead the DTH to take all testing off clients’ hands and giving them peace of mind to focus on other parts of their business,” he continued.

Neil’s role will also include identifying opportunities to work with other Eurofins’ companies, such as security testing experts, Commissum.

Edge Testing MD, Sharon Hamilton, concluded: “Our UK expansion strategy has resulted in a number of strong senior appointments, with Neil being the latest addition to the team. He will be key in assisting Edge Testing to identify any changes we can make in 2021 and beyond to transform our business, ensuring we continue delivering the high level of service and teamwork that we are known for.”

During his time at IBM, Neil was awarded for exemplifying the company’s practice of “Listen for need, envision the future.”

Edge Testing first launched the DTH concept in Scotland in 2013 and it was the first of its kind in the UK. Offering clients an easily accessed, low-cost remote testing service, Edge Testing’s DTH operates as a challenger to offshored testing providers. Following the success of its DTH in Scotland, Edge Testing launched its second DTH in Birmingham in 2017 and opened a third in Manchester last year.
