Welcoming all three to the company, Sales & Marketing Director Arthur Burnley says: “Since its formation in 1996, Alphasense has grown rapidly as a result of heavy and consistent investment in research & innovation, sensor quality and customer service. We now command a 40% share of our core markets, and this success has been built on the development of strong partnerships with our instrument manufacturer customers.
“The addition of three highly talented people to our international sales team is the result of an ambitious growth strategy that will be underpinned by the development of new partnerships and by an expansion of the sensor range that we supply to our existing customers.”
With a Master’s degree in Instrumentation and Analytical Science, and a Bachelor’s degree in Science and the Environment, Andy Dickinson has 35 years’ of experience in the development and sales of gas sensors.
Nate Thompson has a Bachelor of Science, Marketing degree and joins Alphasense with 14 years’ of experience selling safety and gas detection solutions across North America. Most recently, this included 10 years with Industrial Scientific.
After gaining a degree in Marine Technology, Will Parrett has spent 18 years in technical sales and marketing roles, and joins from Honeywell Analytics where he was recently recognised as the top software sales performer in Europe.
The three positions commence in February/March 2021 and Arthur Burnley says: “I warmly congratulate the appointees and look forward to working with them. All three have strong scientific backgrounds, much of it in gas detection, which is a clear demonstration of Alphasense’s commitment to high levels of technical support.”
