NETPark based Evince name Deborah McGargle as interim chair

Evince Technology (Evince) earlier this month named Deborah McGargle as interim chair of the company’s board of directors, following the death of John Urwin who sadly passed away too soon in August 2019 after a short but defiant battle with cancer.

John Urwin joined the Evince board in October 2016 with a 30-year track record of success in the global semiconductor industry, and very quickly became a fervent and passionate supporter of the company’s technology and potential for revolutionising 21st century electronics. One of his final recommendations was to suggest that Deborah McGargle, who has been Evince’s external legal counsel for a number of years, could take on the role of acting chairperson while the company takes whatever time is necessary to find a long-term replacement.

Deborah is well known within the European and US East Coast technology sector for her legal,business development, and fund-raising expertise, and will bring a welcome broadening of skills and board-level experience into Evince. She is chief legal officer and part of the founding team of London based SeedLegals, the UK’s largest legal platform for start-ups; prior to this she spent 10 years within the electrical distribution and manufacturing sector working for Rolls Royce plc and Siemens plc in the North of England, Germany and the Middle East.

In addition, she has been an advisor, mentor and advocate to multiple industry organisations including Techstars, the Cherie Blair Foundation for Women and the British American Business Council of New England.

Evince Technology has appointed Deborah McGargle as interim chair to its board of directors.

Access to quality facilities was one of the main drivers for deciding to locate the business at the NETPark. We have been able to use this as a launch pad to link into support from CPI and world-class expertise from Durham University.

Steve Clements, - Managing Director, aXenic

CPI has developed a specialist offering to support SMEs looking to develop their printable electronics applications and our partnership with Business Durham has been instrumental in attracting several SMEs to locate here in the region.

Dr Jon Helliwell, - Director of Printable Electronics, CPI

The proximity to the universities and the infrastructure are very important factors. Ultimately having a presence in Europe is very valuable to us and we intend to stay at NETPark for many years to come.

Dr Arnab Basu, - CEO, Kromek

It fits perfectly for us that we’re surrounded by like-minded companies at NETPark. There are a number of highly skilled people in the area who can help us grow our business. The facilities and services offered by NETPark are first class, they make office life simple and engaging.

Stuart Wilson, - CEO, Ascarii

We initially came because of the printable electronics centre but access to a highly skilled semi conductor workforce in the North East has been a key factor in us staying and growing here, as well as the value for money office space and the access to funding.

Ken Williamson, - COO, PragmatIC Printing

The quality of the facilities at NETPark and the attitude of staff is first class. It has a really dynamic, innovative atmosphere.
