Glider grows leadership team

Glider welcomes John Simpson and David Hunt to the leadership team

  • David Hunt

David joins Glider from construction software company, Autodesk. He worked there for over four years as a Principal Customer Success Manager running several global accounts.

David has over three decades of experience in the construction and technology industries. This includes former roles at Business Collaborator (now Bentley), Asite, BIW, BT, and WSP, where he has amassed experience running teams, delivering complex CDE projects, and managing customer relationships. David’s wealth of expertise in construction software makes him Glider’s clear choice to fulfil the newly created role of Head of Customer Success. He will establish and implement approaches that provide a fulfilling customer experience, and support the company in achieving its targets.

  • John Simpson

John joins Glider after seven years at construction, infrastructure and support service firm, Robertson Group. While here he worked as Head of Digital Construction and Regional BIM Coordinator.

He has also fulfilled previous positions at Ramboll, WSP, Struer Consulting Engineers and Lakesmere Building Envelope Specialists. John’s extensive career in Building Information Management (BIM) gives him great insight into how the sector operates. This allows him to intimately understand obstacles faced in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industries. This understanding will be fundamental to his new role, as he develops and implements BIM strategies to address these challenges.

These two new roles have grown Glider’s leadership team from five to seven members. This demonstrates the business’ ambitious outlook and forward momentum.

Nick Hutchinson, Managing Director said, “We are delighted to welcome John Simpson and David Hunt on board. They are both great talents and we have no doubt they will make excellent additions to the team. They will continue to take Glider in the direction of growth and success”.
