Key appointment at leading UK measurement specialist
Measurement Solutions, the UK partner for Creaform 3D portable metrology and Metrologic Group inspection software, has announced the appointment of Andrew Tagg as its new business development director.
Following the recent news that the business is undergoing re-structuring to better meet the needs of the industrial measurement market, Andrew Tagg has been appointed to take responsibility for business development and strategic growth of Measurement Solutions in the coming years. With over 10 years sales experience within the portable metrology and 3D scanning sectors, Andrew will provide the company with an injection of business and sales experience.
Starting his career as a design engineer, he soon moved to FARO Technologies and quickly developed through the ranks to regional sales manager, establishing the UK salesforce as easily the leading supplier of portable measuring arms. After 10 years of developing sales in the UK, he was also given responsibility for sales in several European territories, including Scandinavia, Benelux and the Spanish market. In 2015, following a re-structuring of the FARO business into vertical market sectors, Andrew was promoted to sales director EMEA for 3D Documentation Technologies, including scanning applications such as architecture, cultural heritage, mining and accident & crime scenes. At the end of 2016, his success was rewarded with promotion to global sales director for Faro’s Product Design sector, managing worldwide sales of scanning technologies for reverse engineering, product design and CADCAM modelling.
AndrewTagg has been well known throughout the UK metrology sector for many years and is respected by both his work colleagues and competitors alike. A focused individual who takes great pride in team-leading and achieving performance objectives, ultimately resulting in rapid sales growth, he brings with him a strong reputation for recruiting and mentoring young, energetic sales teams, which will certainly benefit the recent re-structuring of the Measurement Solutions business.
Iain Caville, managing director and founder of the company is excited by this new appointment: “Having Andy on board sends a strong message out to the market and also to our current and future technology partners, such as Creaform and Metrologic Group, that Measurement Solutions means business. I have admired Andy’s work ethic and desire to succeed for many years and I can’t describe how pleased and eager I am to have him as part of my team. I have been working on future growth plans for the company for several months and Andy is a key strategic decision that will now enable this to happen.”
Andy Tagg will work alongside Jason Bridge and David Harper, who have been key members of the Measurement Solutions team for over 10 years, creating a formidable management team to take the business forwards in the coming years.
