QAI's 11th Annual International Software Testing Conference
Le Meridien, Bangalore

George Mackintosh, is the Chief Executive of TestPlant, the rapidly growing software company behind the world-leading and patented robotic test technology "eggPlant". Based in London [near Silicon Roundabout!] and with a development center in Colorado, the business was founded by George and TestPlant chairman Jon Richards. In 2008 with funding from Seraphim Capital, they acquired Redstone Software as their first move in the testing software tools market. The new executive team has transformed the business into an international operation. TestPlant has won major new contracts with major telcos, entertainment companies and defense and security organisations including Ericsson, MTV, Boeing and GE. Recently channel partnerships have been announced with Wipro and Accenture.
Born on a farm in the North of Scotland, George studied business at the University of Edinburgh and still maintains a link with his alma mater as the Entrepreneur in Residence at the Business School. His first job was on the shop floor as a production foreman in the Ford Dagenham Engine Plant. Switching industries he did a corporate apprenticeship at Cable & Wireless and Motorola. As a partner in an international conferencing operation, he ran the business in the UK and then set up an operation in Hong Kong before selling out to Verizon. Raising money for 3i in 1996 he created Geoconference, a collaboration services business which sold to Global Crossing in 2000. For the next few years George did some re-structuring in the dot com fallout for 3i, did a small roll-up of three collaboration businesses (again selling to a bigger player) and indulged in his passion for motor sports. At semi-professional level, he competed in British and European sports car championships.
Living with his partner and three children in Islington, George is a trustee of the National Literary Trust and Freeman in the Worshipful Company of Coachmakers.
