The launch is part of Brightree’s planned investment in Scotland of about $50 million (£32.8m) over the next four years.

Cormack, a former director of Aberdeen Football Club, said: “We recognised that tapping into the highly educated engineering skills base in Scotland would give us access to a wealth of talent in the fields of software development and quality assurance, which are the cornerstones necessary for Brightree to deliver on its aggressive product expansion plans.”

Hepburn said: “Encouraging global businesses like this to invest and expand here is a top priority for the Scottish Government.”
