Founder - Peter Ferry

Peter co-founded Microsoft Scotland and spent much of the dot com boom working in the large financial services institutions of Scotland, consulting on leading-edge web, infrastructure and security projects. Peter’s corporate career continued, ultimately leading Microsoft’s Cloud and Partner programs and building the Microsoft Technology Centre to demonstrate the business impact of disruptive tech.  He served on the board of ScotlandIS from 2013 to 2015, is on the Westminster All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Blockchain and was primary author of “Scottish Government’s Digital Strategy: Distributed Ledger Technologies in Public Services”. Peter also was appointed the Honorary Consul for Estonia – a world-leader in digital government.

Peter has always been excited by leapfrog technologies which have the capability of reshaping the world. That’s why he founded SICCAR – to realise the potential of DLT for government and business. Peter has a passion for technology’s positive impact on society and government, learned from a period living in Estonia.
