Mike Newman is the founder and CEO of My1Login Limited, a wholly UK-based Identity and Access Management company that provides Single Sign-On for web, mobile and thick-client, legacy desktop applications. Mike has over twenty years’ leadership and management experience within technology businesses in roles spanning Marketing, Sales, Development, Operations and Customer Services. Career highlights include leading the creation of one of the UK’s first Internet Service Providers as a joint venture between ScottishPower plc and DC Thomson. Subsequently, during the IPO of THUS plc, Mike led the implementation of new ‘arms-length’ commercial arrangements with the parent company. After that he went on to run the team that secured one of THUS’ largest sales contracts for managed services. Mike went on to head up the operational and delivery teams providing managed services to Government sector customers and, following THUS’ acquisition by Cable and Wireless in 2008, was responsible for leading critical business integration initiatives. Mike remained part of the senior management team at Cable & Wireless until 2011 when he left to build My1Login. Frustrated by the number of business application passwords he had to remember, Mike recognising a gap in the Identity and Access Management – the ability to have access to all business applications linked to the user’s main computer login. Mike engaged developers to build the technology, raised private-equity funding and built the business from seed to revenue generating selling to some of the UK’s largest enterprises. He is a Chartered Engineer Member of the Institute of Engineering & Technology.
