QinetiQ and Inzpire have appointed Brendan Nolan as the new Managing Director of Inzpire Limited, effective 22 June 2022.

Nolan has spent the last three years as the business development director for QinetiQ’s Air and Space business where he has been responsible for all aspects of business growth, from strategy through to sales. Prior to QinetiQ, Nolen worked at Leonardo Electronics (formerly Selex) and also has small business and entrepreneurial experience, having worked for a maritime security start-up. He also has extensive military experience, having spent 18 years in the Royal Air Force with front line tours on both the Tornado GR1 and Chinook aircraft.  

Nolan’s appointment comes following the decision of Hugh Griffiths to step down from the role of CEO to become Executive Chairman. Griffiths is one of the original founders of Inzpire, having established the company in May 2005 alongside two ex-military colleagues. In his 17 years with Inzpire, he has seen the company grow from three people to almost 300. He originally served as the company’s Chairman from 2005 – 2012, before taking up the role of CEO for the next 10 years.
