Lincoln Wallen

Group Chief Technology Officer

Lincoln's lifelong pursuit of innovation and how it best applies to business has seen him take on leadership roles in entertainment, games, academia and technology. He has helped lead, grow and future-proof companies as diverse as the software unicorn Improbable, Dreamworks Animation and Electronic Arts (EA).
Prior to his private sector career, Wallen completed a PhD in artificial intelligence at the University of Edinburgh, and subsequently taught at the Oxford University Computing Laboratory.

As group CTO for the Framestore Company 3 Group, one of Wallen’s key roles is to identify new strategic partnerships across business, technology and academia. He works to strengthen and develop existing relationships with the Group’s wide-ranging client base, helping elevate these existing partnerships as studios, institutions and brands explore new ways to lever and maximise their IP.
Internally, Lincoln works with the leadership of both Framestore and Company 3 to support the Group’s overall strategy, while helping to assess the future impact of new technologies and the new markets they can create.
