New Senior Consultant for VIMA

Iain Sommerville

We are pleased to announce that Iain Sommerville has joined us as Senior Consultant.

Iain has gained a wealth of experience in a variety of industries; after a full career in the Royal Air Force, Director of Operations for 4 Breweries, piloting Unmanned Aircraft, inspecting Oil and Gas platforms. Within these roles, Iain gained a unique set of operational problem solving and management support skills. From Managing small teams deployed in operational arenas to training The Indonesian Army how to fly, operate and maintain drones. His previous roles within DE&S lend themselves to meeting and supporting the growth and expansion in Wider Defence.

On his appointment, Iain commented, “I am both thrilled and delighted to be joining VIMA at such an exciting time of growth and development. I’m very much looking forward to working with all the team to bring about our strategic goals and plans,” Iain also expressed that in no small part in deciding to come and work with VIMA was down to the culture and family vibe that he had heard so much about beforehand.

Keen to keep fit and getting time out on the mountains, Iain spends time enjoying the local mountains near his home in Angus Scotland walking his German Shepard called willow.

“Iain brings with him a wealth of experience from both inside and outside the Defence sector. Not only is this great for our clients but it also allows our junior consultants to learn from someone with that critical Armed Forces experience.”
