This year has been one of change and growth for Scintilla.

We are delighted to announce that this year we opened our second office in Manchester, lead by our new Director of IP Strategy, Suzanne Oliver.  Suzanne joins us following a successful stint at Arm, and brings many years of experience. She is currently building our presence in Manchester, as well as making appearances at conferences and expanding her already impressive network of contacts in the city.

Suzanne is joined in Manchester by Sian Lund, who has taken over responsibility for our accounting. We cannot say too much more about our plans for the Manchester office at the moment, but watch this space!

Closer to home, we have added a Trade Mark Attorney to our Glasgow team! At the start of October we welcomed Kirsten Coetzee and quickly set him to work. While it was an intense introduction to Scintilla, he has taken it in his stride, and we are looking forward to introducing him to all our friends in the Glasgow technology space. If you see him at any events in the near future, be sure to say hello!

Having out grown our Queen Street office, we have also decided to upgrade to new digs. In December, we will be moving to our new home on St Vincent Street. This will offer us more flexibility and space to truly make it our own. We are looking forward to settling in and welcoming in the new year in a new environment.
