Our Story

C2 was founded nearly 2 decades ago by our CEO Richard McGlave who at the time was a high level business continuity practitioner within Scottish Power. During Richard's career both he and his fellow industry colleagues had struggled to find any sort of workable solution to the real world processes required for the efficient and effective management of a comprehensive Business Continuity System. There simply was not a single software product on the market that fully fulfilled the needs of working BC professionals. Frustrated by the lacklustre solutions available Richard turned his dismay to inspiration with the goal of revolutionising the practice of business continuity. With a wife and two young children at home Richard took the massive risk of quitting his career and went out on his own. In 2002 working from a 4x5 office in Edinburgh with nothing more than a desk, chair, and a server in a cupboard Richard started Continuity2. Since then the company has grown exponentially and now services some of the worlds largest organisations making their practice of Business Continuity easier each day.

At C2 today we strive to provide intuitive and innovative solutions for the business resilience market and reshape the industry as we know it today. So it's safe to say our values have never changed in 16 years and no matter our successes we will never stop striving to be better. It is our promise to you, that an investment in C2 is an investment in always being at the cutting edge of business resilience technologies and best practice.

Some of Our Team

Industry experts, innovative designers, robust developers, and the most effective service delivery personel in the land

Richard McGlave CEO

Once upon a time (20+ years ago) I was an operational risk manager, who inherited BC as an additional burden. Once I was immersed in the subject, I found it extremely interesting and saw the potential for improving overall risk management and indeed what is now referred to as Organisational resilience. I set up Continuity2 as a Business Continuity Management Consultancy, however, unsatisfied with the systems available I started to design a system for the “Business Continuity Manager” and we launched our first offering in 2005.

Charles Farrell Business Risk and Resilience Manager

With a background working in the semiconductor industry, when the opportunity to join C2 came along I was delighted to do so. A big part of the appeal for me was the company’s commitment to developing management system software solutions, and being a part of that, rather than pursuing a consultancy-based approach. We have a large and diverse client base from pretty much all industry sectors and with differing organisational cultures. It is always rewarding to support these organisations on their BC journey

Aimee Quinn Business Risk & Resilience Analyst

Prior to joining C2 I spent 4 years at Glasgow Caledonian University obtaining a BA(Hons) in Risk Management. My degree covered Business Continuity and this is where my interest peaked, so much so it became the subject of my Dissertation. During this time I worked in the public sector for a local authority working in asset management, but was given the opportunity to work with the Resilience Team on a major project. I have worked with C2 ever since graduating!

Marc McStay Head of Digital

I'm a 360 digital creative with a decade of industry experience working with the likes of JP Morgan, Ibac, Hanergy, and even musicians such as Ocean Colour Scene and Brit Awards Nominee Lewis Capaldi. My skillset ranges from UX design and development, to marketing and video production.

I've been at C2 for 3 years now and I've never worked at a company with such a strong desire for innovation. If you set out into the unknown with the goal of enhancing the users experience then there's no such thing as failure no matter the end result. With an attitude like that within the company you can rest assured C2 will continue lead the way for Business Resilience.

Andrea McGlave Finance Director

As Finance Director I handle all financial and accounting operations within the business. Having been here at C2s conception some 16 years ago, I have seen our client base grow across all sectors globally from major utility companies to world leading banking institutes. We consistently work on improving our service to clients and aim to create a well-balanced creative space for our staff to thrive in. I am proud of our company and even prouder of our people.

Anish Alexander Developer

I have been working as full stack developer for the past 6 years specialising in .NET/SQL. Five of those years I've been a part of the amazing team here at C2 working on the companies first software offering 'BCMS2' and now the brand new product MeridianBCMS. It's been really exciting devloping software that has had such a positive impact on our clients and their business continuity practice.

When I am not developing one of my main hobbies is collecting coins which I have been doing since the age of 8!

Callum Brown Techincal Analyst

I worked in warehouses during my last years of high school, whilst I applied for the RAF Aircrew. Whilst I was unsuccessful and seemingly out of options, thankfully I was given an opportunity to prove myself at C2. I now have a career doing something which I enjoy and feel like the work that we do here is very meaningful.  I couldn't really ask for a better team to be around, who make the job even better.

Lisa McStay Operations

Here at C2, I wear many hats and love my job.

I oversee and support our Service Delivery and Marketing teams, manage recruitment company wide, take care of our clients both existing and potential and work passionately on the strategy and future planning for the business.

I love coming to work every day because of the team I have around me. C2’s people are full of passion, innovation and creativity. I consider myself lucky to work alongside all of them.

Arlene Smith Techincal Analyst

Before C2 I worked within the online department of a large travel management company. As the team manager I worked closely with the technical desk to ensure excellent service delivery was always provided to our customers. Prior to beginning my career at C2 I did not have much exposure into Business Continuity, however I now fully appreciate the importance of organisations being prepared for the worst and how small incidents can have such a huge impact.

Graham Cuthbert Technical Support Manager

I have been with C2 for 15 years, before that I worked for The Royal Bank of Scotland, Compaq and the Student Loans Company. I have been involved in IT all my working life and that would take you back to before most of you were born! I enjoy all aspects of the Job and we are building a great team who I hope to be working with for a long time yet.

Susan Smith Digital Marketing Manager

Before starting with C2, I spent 10 years working in marketing, following my graduation from Strathclyde Business school, mainly in the B2B environment within the technology industry. Most recently I spent 5 years working in the semiconductor market where I handled the company’s global marketing activity, before beginning my journey here at C2 with the marketing team. For us, no two days are the same which is exactly how I like to work - fast-paced, exciting and innovative.

Donna MacLellan Business Risk & Resilience Analyst

I studied Risk Management at University, and during my course I was exposed to many different subjects from insurance to mortgages to Business Continuity. Although I enjoyed all aspects of the course, I had no idea what field to specialise in. Then along came C2! I am extremely happy with the position I am in and have learned so much about Business Continuity in the time I have been here and hope to continue expand my industry knowledge.

Chris Aiton Digital Marketing Manager

I graduated from Glasgow Caledonian University in 2008, and since have worked across many sectors and industries in a number of roles. I have gravitated towards technology companies who are at the leading edge of their field and have found this work to be the most challenging and the most interesting.

C2 practice what they preach in terms of company ethos and give back in their charity work and reward their staff with benefits and a creative working environment.
