Colin Maund founded Hellios Information in 2012 as the next generation of supplier information and risk management services, following 30 years’ experience in procurement and having pioneered supplier information management by founding Achilles Group in the UK in 1993.

Colin, a graduate from the London School of Economics (LSE), was CEO of Achilles Group until 2011, and was responsible for its international growth into 26 countries before leading the sale of the business in 2008 to a Private Equity firm, HgCapital. In 2009 Colin was awarded the UK Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year for IT Services.

Prior to founding Achilles, Colin specialised in procurement where he worked for a variety of organisations including HM Treasury, CBI and National Power. In 2001 he was appointed by the UK Government as one of the two UK representatives on the European Commission’s Advisory Committee for the Opening up of Public Procurement.

Colin remains one of the leading experts in EU Procurement Legislation and is heavily involved in the development of procurement, on which he has written extensively. He is interested in the interface between professional procurement and the demands of Corporate and Social Responsibility. Colin was appointed a Trustee of The Outward Bound Trust in March 2012.
