Linden Holliday, CEO, MyDrive Solutions combines eight years’ experience in management consultancy within the “Big 4” with director-level experience in large UK corporations (Centrica, the UK' largest gas and electricity company, and Virgin Media, the UK's largest cable company), as well as start-up enterprises.
With the backing of a veteran technology investor in 2010, Linden transformed the ideas of a company going into administration into a world-leading data science company, whose innovative product development ensured its place at the forefront of the Usage Based Insurance industry.
In 2015, the Generali Group made a strategic decision to buy 100% of the equity, and to put MyDrive at the heart of the group's strategy regarding the exploitation of data, and the entry to the world of the "Internet of Things".
Linden has had a lifelong interest in the arts and is delighted to be a part of the dynamic management team driving Rifco Arts forward.
