Genomtec has appointed Richard Moore as the new Chief Technology Officer to drive its next generation of products and systems. Richard replaces Jason Reece who announced his intentions to retire.
Richard Moore joins from GeneDrive where he most recently served as the Head of Engineering and comes with over 25 years of experience in new product introduction and design for manufacturability within the medical devices and electronics industry. During his career in UK and Canada Richard demonstrated success in leading electronics, mechanical and software engineering teams to develop new products that meet customer requirements, quality, regulatory and manufacturability requirements. Richard gained broad range of knowledge of Good Manufacturing Practices and a clear understanding of design for manufacturability during his work at: GeneDrive Diagnostics Limited in Manchester, UK; Optos Plc, Dunfermline, UK; DySIS Medical Ltd., Edinburgh, UK; Cadence Design Systems, Livingston, UK; Newbridge Networks Corporation, Ontario, Canada and GEC Plessey Semiconductors, Plymouth, UK.
– I am very excited to welcome Richard Moore as our new Chief Technology Officer. His experience in moving the production process from design to scalable manufacturing is proven and it is exactly what we need today. I also would like to thank Jason Reece for his engagement and support during last critical years for Genomtec, which brought us to the phase of a registered platform. Without his passion and knowledge, it would be difficult to accomplish our technical milestones. – said Miron Tokarski, Chief Executive Officer in Genomtec.
– I am thrilled to join the international team of experts from Genomtec and contribute to further dynamic growth of the company. I have gained qualities and skills, which are the right fit to the company’s current needs. We will for sure work on every market feedback on Genomtec®ID we would receive to make the platform even better than it is now. SNAAT® technology is ground-breaking and its use needs excellent engineering processes which I hope to lead the team to and strengthen the company products and solutions even further. – said Richard Moore, Chief Technology Officer in Genomtec.
