Secure Chorus Ltd announcement of board director Roderick Hodgson’s departure and appointment of Stephen Brown


“After two-and-a-half years, I am stepping down as board director of Secure Chorus Ltd. Co-founding this small, yet influential not-for-profit membership organisation – which has the biggest public and private sector organisations as its stakeholders and members – was hugely challenging; it has also been fascinating and rewarding. After more than two years of hard work, I’m pleased to see that Secure Chorus Ltd has become a modern, agile and relevant organisation, serving as a platform for multi-stakeholder co-operation for the development of much needed standards to make technology products interoperable, auditable and secure by design. Having been involved in activities ranging from assembling furniture for the first office, to attending meetings with senior government officials and company executives around the world, I’ve come to the conclusion that when you build a company there is nothing too small or too big to deal with.” Roderick Hodgson.

Roderick Hodgson will formally leave his role as board director on 31st March 2019. The board of directors is delighted to announce the appointment of Stephen Brown as board director of Secure Chorus Ltd, with effect from 31st March 2019. On joining the board, Stephen will become a member of the Strategy Committee and the Standards Committee. Stephen is currently Chief Information Officer of Secure Chorus Ltd. Stephen has more than 25 years’ experience in providing technology solutions. He served as Head of IT for various organisations across sectors, including defence and national security, technology, oil and gas, commodity extraction processes, manufacturing and professional services industries.

Elisabetta Zaccaria, Chairman of the board of directors, Secure Chorus Ltd said: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Roderick for his commitment, expertise and energy in co-founding, evolving and repositioning Secure Chorus Ltd and for having provided its members with exceptional technology leadership. The profile and value of the organisation today is exactly as Roderick and I had envisaged when we set out on this journey to transform an industry working group into a stand-alone not-for-profit membership organisation. This has been thanks to our appetite and ability to execute change, and it would have been impossible without Roderick’s undivided commitment, resilience and enthusiasm. Thank you, Roderick.”
