Envitia Appoints New Chairman following Private Equity Investment

New Chairman brings a wealth of experience from data analytics and defence sector.

Envitia has appointed Alan Gaby as the new Chairman of its Board of Directors. Gaby was previously CEO of data & analytics specialist Tessella and takes up the position at Envitia in addition to Chairman roles at two other private equity backed businesses in the digital transformation sector.

Gaby has a background in the defence sector with multi-national corporates and a strong track record of guiding businesses through multi-sector growth and value creating strategies. Following Envitia’s private-equity backed Management Buy-Out last year with Maven Capital Partners, Gaby will bring his experience of working closely with management and private equity to guide Envitia through the next phase of its growth journey.

“It’s great to have someone of Alan’s calibre join the Board at an exciting time for the company,” said Envitia CEO Nabil Lodey. “It was important for us to have a Chairman who has been through the same journey and learnt the lessons that can benefit our business. Alan has delivered impressive growth in the data and analytics market, both as CEO as well as guiding other businesses as Chairman. When combined with a background in defence, a passion for creating innovative cultures, and experience of working with private equity, we felt that he would be the ideal fit for Envitia.”

“I’m absolutely delighted to have joined Envitia and very much looking forward to working alongside Nabil and the board at such an exciting inflexion point. The market opportunity for spatial data science is considerable and with the support of Maven Capital Partners, Envitia is uniquely placed to take a leading role in this sector.”
