Oxford Quantum Circuits (OQC) announces that Peter George has been appointed Chairperson with immediate effect, taking over from Dr. Andrew Mackintosh. Peter George, currently an advisor to OQC’s major investor Oxford Science Innovation (OSI), will support the company through the next phase of expansion and fund-raising.
As Chairman, since the formation of the business, Andrew Mackintosh has overseen the successful development of the company under its CEO, Dr. Ilana Wisby, from its research base in the University of Oxford to the recent key milestone of the launch of OQC’s Quantum Compute as a Service. Andrew is stepping aside to devote more time to his other activities, including his growing fund-management board roles.
Dr. Ilana Wisby, CEO of OQC said: “It has been a privilege to work with Andrew, both personally, and on behalf of the company for all his support, kindness, and wisdom over the years.”
