Ian Moyse joins the Board of the Federation Against Software Theft
12th January, 2016
One of the best known names in the UK IT sector Ian Moyse, has been appointed to the Board of the Federation Against Software Theft (FAST). Ian is joining in a personal capacity but brings experience of working on the board of Eurocloud UK and the Governance Board of the Cloud Industry Forum (CIF).
Ian has a long industry pedigree having worked in the IT sector for over 30 years, with nine of these specialising in security and over 23 years in the channel. He has held senior positions in a wide range of organisations, including Senior Vice President for EMEA at CA and Sales Director at Workbooks.com. He was awarded ‘Sales Director of the Year 2015’ by the Institute of Sales & Marketing and was recently named number 1 by Onalytica in its top 100 cloud influencers list for 2015.
Alex Hilton, FAST’s CEO, commented: “Ian has a significant amount of experience that is of direct interest to our membership community, so he makes a very welcome addition to the Board. Having previously led a business in the software licensing space and with a wealth of knowledge spanning traditional models and newer cloud go-to-market models, he is well placed to offer guidance and support. As FAST continues to evolve to the modern needs of our members and the industry, Ian’s advisory input will be invaluable to our cause and members.”
Ian added: “It is always pleasing to be recognised for the industry value that you can bring from past experiences and I look forward to contributing to the development of both FAST and CIF. The IT sector is in the midst of a time of great disruption, which brings with it a significant amount of opportunity, but also risk. Adjusted licensing, deployment methods and business models are changing rapidly and affecting industries and up and down the supply chain. Everyone has to adapt to an agile world and FAST is no different. I look forward to contributing to their evolving journey.”
Established in 1984, FAST is a not-for-profit organisation that promotes the legal use of software, enforces against cyber criminals who seek to pollute the supply of software services and influences legal developments accordingly.
