New Commercial Director for Guidance Industrial

January News

Paul Rivers
Guidance Navigation Ltd is pleased to announce the appointment of Paul Rivers, the new Commercial Director for our Industrial division.

With further expansion of the Industrial Division at Guidance, we welcome Paul into a newly created role.  He will combine his efforts to grow the business within the division and help develop the strategy and roadmap for moving it forward in these exciting times.  Following a successful global career, Paul has spent the last nine years working in business development within the laser measurement industry, starting a new division within a company and growing it before being successfully sold in a recent acquisition.  He helped both integrators and end users find solutions within their markets, wherever laser measurement technology could be utilised.

Being passionate about positioning, autonomy, mapping and safety, within the still relatively young laser market, Guidance's Industrial division will benefit from Paul's experience and his enthusiasm for the still many untapped opportunities and new product potentials which are plentiful.

Paul followed his Engineering degree in Optoelectronics and Laser Systems with a PhD involving extremely high power laser ablation experiments at Southampton University.  Now reassuringly he will only involve himself with eye safe laser products such as the diverse range here at Guidance.  

Paul will generate ideas and foundations for a number of new commercial products working with Chris Drewe, Product Manager and Dave Barnett, Head of Autonomous Systems within the division.

We wish Paul luck and great success in his new endeavour with Guidance.
