Mo founded Dunedin Solutions in Edinburgh in January 2016. He holds core expertise in resolving complex business challenges through an effective, structured and disciplined project execution model.

Mo co-invested and worked as COO in Calvatec, an inspiring Edinburgh based Startup, in 2009 and worked very effectively with other co-founders to achieve a successful exit (acquisition by a US-based company) in approximately two years. 

Mo has developed alliance relationships with NHS Scotland, Scottish universities, Scottish Enterprise and the Scottish government. He has also served on number of Startups judging panels, including: University of Strathclyde, Scottish Enterprise High Growth Initiatives, Business Gateway, Scottish EDGE and Social investment Scotland.

Mo has worked with several US tech multi-billion-dollar international companies over the past 34 years in the computer, mobile, telecom and semiconductor industries. His experience includes serving as an executive leader for three Startups in Scotland where he successfully implemented the required business infrastructures and execution models.

Mo’s recent work includes development of the iModel (innovation-to-commercialisation model) for a large US-European corporates, a lifesciences technology transfer from Germany to UK, serving as an advisor to an Aberdeen based lifesciences Startup, and most recently engaging key industry players to engage as part of healthcare ecosystem in the public health sector (ongoing).
