A man known only as "The Chairman" was the mastermind behind the Andromeda / Novacom scheme to take over the world. We only have heard from him once in the episode "Exit", and he is often referenced to by Arthur Dent, Armitage Shanks, Bennett Charles and others in the conspiracy. He appears to have some computer expertise as he programmed the launch site himself. He disappeared after Operation: Think Tank was thwarted, commenting only that "It's over... for now," and has not been heard from since.
- The AIO team once thought of making Margaret Faye the Chairman but the idea was scrapped.
