Steve MacLaren – Chief Operating Officer, National Robotarium, Heriot-Watt University

After a full career In the Royal Navy as an aerospace engineer working mainly on Rotary wing Aircraft Steve then joined a major aerospace defence company charged with delivering support and services across the globe to multiple international and domestic customers of key Avionics and electrical components. This involved managing large contracts and a highly skilled team of logisticians, technicians, projects managers and associated functional support. From there he progressed into the world of digital and ultimately ended up in the IT department of the same Aerospace and Defence company as a Business Partner working across multiple sites and all of the major functions. This included, Finance, Engineering, Procurement, Operations, Legal and Support and Services, a great grounding for this job!
