Focused on complex, innovative, enterprise software products, before joining GeoSpock in 2016 Huw was VP Product Development at Citrix Systems. Here he was responsible for the XenApp and XenDesktop product lines, leading a globally distributed team of 500 engineers. Huw started his career as a software developer with Praxis Systems – the first independent systems house to achieve BS5750 (later ISO 9001) certification for all its activities. Subsequently, he worked for a company spun out of ICL to commercialize its Distributed Array Processor technology, and a start-up building a parallel database server based on Inmos transputers.
