He is currently Vice Chairman of the Board at Cloudreach, an international cloud computing consultancy, where he was previously CEO. Under his leadership, the company was recognised as a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant and also ranked top 25 in The Sunday Times Hiscox Tech 100 for two years running. Noren will now use his passion for innovative technology to help GeoSpock’s Board and executive teams drive the company’s next phase of growth.
