Innovating and improving to generate revenue and acquire new clients

Colleagues have told Brian he was born with extra innovative and entrepreneurial DNA. He’s passionate about wind power and armour EDGE is the culmination of several decades of original thinking, exceptional revenue generation and entrepreneurial pursuit (from selling apples at school aged 12). Brian graduated with a Bachelor of Commerce degree in 1991 studying Business and Law at the University of Edinburgh, and his diverse career (The Road Less Travelled) has provided him with comprehensive experience in every aspect of founding, building and managing businesses in various sectors across several countries.

Brian has pulled together a world class group of specialists and experts across a wide area of technical and engineering disciplines to deliver the expertise required to develop armour EDGE, from adhesives to IP, and materials research to testing. He and his team’s efforts have been greatly assisted by many businesses and organisations including Scottish Enterprise, Business Gateway, ORE Catapult, the Energy Technology Partnership and Interface, Heriot-Watt University and the University of Limerick, to name but a few of the organisations that supported EDGE Solutions over previous years. Above all Brian attributes his achievements to his ability to identify commercial need, relentless self-motivation and dogged determination to achieve results, and he appreciates this quote:

Ambition is the path to success. Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in – Bill Bradley

He loves the outdoors and is often found in the hills or on a bike or running trail, and a keen, accomplished sailor he has completed many long passages including an Atlantic crossing in 2006.
