Shahida Imani
Chief Executive Officer
Chromacity Ltd

CEO of Chromacity Ltd, ultrafast laser company based in Scotland,

Shahida qualified as a Chartered Management Accountant early in her career whilst working for Optos, a high growth photonics company specialising on Opthalmic Instrumentation, this included spending time in Boston to support the US expansion. This was followed by roles in a number of high growth, venture backed, tech companies, before setting up her own Business Consultancy company in 2008 during which time she was introduced to Chromacity and took on the role of CEO in late 2018. Understanding the challenges and developing strategic plans that can be implemented into practical solutions and processes has helped Shahida provide the expertise that is often lacking scaling companies.

“I have always been excited by innovative technologies that have the potential to save or change people’s lives and contribute positively to the global challenges we face. The Photonics industry [and indeed the technology at Chromacity] are at the forefront of these developments. The collaborative nature of the industry has been very encouraging, as I believe building strong relationships, and working together will not only help us individually but provide significant societal benefits globally”
