Adarma Announces Management Expansion Amid Rapid Growth

Edinburgh-based Adarma, the leading independent specialist in detection and response services, welcomes three new leaders to its cybersecurity services delivery team. The appointments of Donna Goddard as Head of Security Engineering; Matthew Hmoud as Head of Security Consulting; and Richard Green as Head of Risk and Information Security will add significant collective security, customer and complex programme delivery experience as the company continues to scale.

In October last year, Adarma was awarded a £2 million grant from Scotland’s national economic development agency, Scottish Enterprise. The funding was aimed at creating over 50 cybersecurity roles as well as supporting the company’s aggressive innovation programme. This announcement represents the latest step in their commitment towards achieving that objective.

“I could not be more delighted to announce the continued growth of our team, particularly at the heels of our recognition as one of the world’s most innovative CyberTech companies in the 2023 CyberTech100 list,” said John Maynard, Adarma CEO. As the leading detection and response specialist in the UK we continue to attract and invest in talent to ensure we can help our customers to measurably reduce business risk. Donna, Matt and Richard each bring with them a wealth of industry expertise, and I look forward to them driving exceptional experiences for our customers.”
