Never afraid to challenge the status quo of existing technology and traditional industry thinking, Matthew Finnie is one of the most provocative technology thinkers in Europe.
When Matthew became Interoute’s CTO, he had a vision that if companies centralised technology development, then Europe could produce technology success stories on par with Silicon Valley. Proving that the US model can be put to work in Europe, Interoute now owns and operates the largest integrated networked cloud computing asset in Europe.
Matthew has degrees in electrical and electronic engineering and marketing and has spent more than 20 years at the heart of technology companies on both sides of the Atlantic, developing everything from semiconductors to software. Under his technology leadership, Interoute has created a Software Defined Networking approach to everything, introducing fully integrated Voice over IP and Cloud computing into the fabric of its global network; redefining how businesses deploy, distribute and access applications across the enterprise.
