Job Title: CEO
Gordon Coulter is the founder and CEO of Exmos Ltd, an IT Managed Service Provider and software development company. Headquartered in Grangemouth with staff in Glasgow and Poland, it provides support for over 100 sites across the world covering the UK, most of Europe, several states in the US, South America, Russia and Korea. Many of these sites run 24x7 with production lines that simply cannot be down. Its software team develops business critical, enterprise grade applications which its customers depend on to keep them in business. In 2019 it joined a consortium of companies including Parkburn Precision Handling Systems and MacGregor to develop a Liftline Management System for deep-water lifting using fibre rope – something that is slated to revolutionise many industries including oil and gas.
Gordon’s focus is ensuring Exmos delivers on its strategy of “Reliable and Secure IT Systems for Everyone”. He firmly believes the foundation of a good cybersecurity strategy starts with having a backup and recovery solution you can bet your business on, because you’ll most likely need to call on it. This is why he partnered his company with Datto and why Datto are exhibiting and talking with Exmos at the Digit Expo.
With a strong technology background as a developer and systems engineer, he was the architect of SentiLAN, Exmos’ remote monitoring platform which receives millions of metrics a day from the systems and applications the company manages. It is the eyes and ears that allows a small team of skilled engineers to look after a large and complex IT estate, comprising of both recognisable and highly proprietary technology.
In 2016, he participated in the Growth Advantage Program (GAP) run by Strathclyde School of Business, for established companies looking to scale and recommends the program to anyone in that next step of their business journey.
Early next year he starts an MSc in Advanced Security And Digital Forensics at Napier University as part of his company’s evolution from MSP to MSSP. He’s quietly confident he may take the oldest student award, should one exist.
