Software business Ghyston promotes Emily Hill to chief executive

Ghyston, the Bristol software development company, has restructured its top-tier management and promoted Emily Hill to chief executive and Dan Phipps to chief operations officer.

Emily previously worked as a developer, technical consultant and project manager for Softwire London and moved to Bristol in 2012 to open Softwire West.

In September 2017, she co-founded Ghyston with husband Ric Hill.

Emily says she is "very much looking forward to applying her in-depth knowledge of development" to the role and leading the team forward.

She said “Ghyston is a unique place to work, I am very proud to now be CEO. I am extremely keen to continue developing our culture which is incredibly supportive resulting in the best people in tech wanting to work here”.

Emily’s promotion puts her among the most influential women in tech in the UK - and she hopes this will attract more females to the industry and to Ghyston.

She added: “Ghyston is a unique place to work, I am very proud to now be CEO. I am extremely keen to continue developing our culture which is incredibly supportive resulting in the best people in tech wanting to work here”.

Emily replaces Ric who will retain his involvement as chair of the board.
