Welsh tech company secures Silicon Valley exec as chairman


Inventory and shipping platform for retailers Veeqo has announced former Silicon Valley executive Martin Fincham as its new chairman with immediate effect.

Fincham brings experience from a 30-year career in the tech sector, having previously been both an entrepreneur and corporate CEO. He spent five years as an executive in Silicon Valley after his first software company was acquired by an American buyer.

The appointment follows Veeqo’s £3.3m round last year, which resulted in in a new office in Texas.

The firm’s barcode scanning hardware provides ‘digital picking’ capabilities in ecommerce warehouses.

“The team has built an exceptional platform for retailers, and is positioned perfectly to expand both within the UK and America,” said Fincham.

Matt Warren, CEO and Founder of Veeqo, added: “I’m extremely proud that Veeqo is flying the flag for Welsh tech, and securing Martin as our Chairman is fantastic for us.

“He brings a wealth of business experience in the technology sector, and will play a pivotal role in helping us achieve our growth targets – both here in the UK and as we continue to expand across the US.”
