Ann Budge, Owner, CEO and Chairwoman

Graduating with a psychology degree, Budge became the first woman appointed to a senior position in Scottish & Newcastle after starting her career there as a trainee programmer. After leaving F International – now Xansa – Budge set up a business working from home, and teaming up with Allison Newell in 1985, launched Newell & Budge, which specialised in making bespoke software and IT systems. It was sold to the French IT company Sopra Group in 2005, at which point the business she had started had over 1000 staff across six regional offices in the UK and New Delhi. Budge then became Chief Executive of Hearts football club. In her executive role, she is principally responsible for setting the strategy and putting in place a 3-5-year plan that will bring both financial stability and create opportunity for                                                                                                development within the football club.
