Testing firm Resillion brings on qualitest co-founder Yaron Kottler
Resillion, formerly known as Eurofins Digital Testing, has recently announced the appointment of Yaron Kottler as its executive chair.
Kottler comes with a wealth of experience, spanning two decades in the industry. He is renowned for co-founding the quality engineering firm Qualitest.
Throughout his career, Kottler has been actively involved in multiple private equity deals, involving both Qualitest and other firms in the quality engineering sector. Additionally, he offers his expertise as a board advisor to a variety of early-stage technology startups, spanning sectors such as media, healthcare, and connected devices.
Commenting on his new role, Kottler said, “Our industry is being disrupted by AI, DevOps and evolving client expectations. This is a massive opportunity for Resillion, not just because change is always an opportunity, but also because our larger competitors have significant innovation dilemmas and will find it very hard to adjust. In an IT services environment where it is often hard to differentiate, Resillion offers a unique set of capabilities across software, hardware, content and compliance. Along with real potential for industry disruption, this is what motivated my decision to join this dynamic company.”
Dik Vos, who previously held the chief executive position at Resillion, will now transition to a role as a non-executive director on the board, working in collaboration with Stirling Square Capital Partners, the investor.
Julien Horreard, a partner at Stirling Square, expressed his views: “Yaron’s vision for the business, fresh thinking, tenacity and passion brings significant benefits to Resillion’s clients. Through his business skills, unmatched expertise within quality engineering and ability to scale a company, we are confident in his international growth plans, and ability to attract and retain the very best talent.”
Resillion, initially established as Edge Testing Solutions in Strathclyde Business Park, underwent ownership changes, being acquired by Eurofins before eventually evolving into its current form. The company now operates under the name Resillion, with two prominent Scottish offices located in West Nile Street, Glasgow, and Mitchell Street, Edinburgh.
From these Scottish bases, Resillion is primarily engaged in providing engineering and cyber security services to its clientele.
