Adrian Tate named as new CEO of The Numerical Algorithms Group


27 Sep 2019 Oxford - Adrian Tate, an established expert in the numerical libraries and High Performance Computing (HPC) industries, has been announced as the next Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of The Numerical Algorithms Group (NAG), the trusted provider of HPC and numerical computing expertise. Adrian Tate will replace Rob Meyer, who is standing down after 15 years of leading NAG, on 18 November 2019.

Adrian Tate joins NAG with a 20-year track record in HPC and numerical libraries, including 15+ years at Cray. Adrian Tate brings a wealth of experience in HPC, software R&D and technical business leadership. In his current role, Adrian Tate is the founding Director of the Cray European R&D Lab, where he leads customer-focused business activities, coordinates EU R&D projects and develops collaborations with Cray customers. He previously worked in Cray's CTO Office, developing new market-focused products and supporting the CTO in strategic planning. Adrian Tate has a strong background in numerical libraries, having been the Technical Lead and Manager of the Cray Scientific Libraries team for several years. Prior to Cray, Adrian Tate was an HPC Consultant at the University of Manchester.

Professor Stephen Todd, NAG Chairman, said of the new appointment: "The Board and I are delighted that Adrian has agreed to take on the role of CEO of NAG. We believe he has the right skills and experience to lead NAG through the next phase of its growth, building on the strong platform that Rob and the Senior Leadership Team have formed over the last 15 years."

Speaking of his new role as CEO of NAG, Adrian Tate stated: "It's a real honour to be chosen to lead the Numerical Algorithms Group - a company I've known and respected for my entire career. I share NAG's passion for the role of mathematics in technology and believe this remains highly relevant in the new era of computing. I look forward to working with such a talented team to continue providing quality to NAG's many customers whilst innovating for future growth."

NAG is acknowledged around the world as an expert in the provision of numerical libraries for technical computing, and as the trusted source of impartial expertise in the business and technical aspects of HPC. In May 2020, NAG will celebrate 50 years since its formation as an inter-University collaborative venture in the UK. Over the following decades NAG has grown into an international not-for-profit business, working collaboratively with partners in industry and academia to deliver robust algorithms via the flagship NAG Library, and other numerical computing software products. NAG also helps customers around the world in industry, government and academia to deliver the best impact at the best cost from HPC and technical computing, through expert consulting and services, including code performance and scalability, technology evaluation, benchmarking, training, cost models, strategic advice, and more.
