The need for remote working because of the global COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the digitalisation of the AEC industry and caused an unprecedented demand for our cloud-based digital construction platform. As a result, we have expanded our in-house team of talent including more skilled software engineers and experienced sales and customer support roles. With an exciting roadmap ahead, the team has gone from just 8 employees to 16 strong over the past 12 months!
Earlier this year we welcomed Matthew Osment to the position of Head of Digital Twins and Product Manager. Previously a customer of 3D Repo, Matthew had been consulting in the construction industry in various forms for the past 5 years, working predominantly with main contractors focusing on innovation and efficiency in planning and commercial activities, with a focus on BIM. Since joining 3D Repo, Matthew has done a lot of work to build out our integration offering. He has also been the key driver for the development of our new 3D planning portal, PlanBase, and also the Innovate UK funded AEC Production Control Rooms project led by Mace.
Another recent hire to the team is Dr Sebastian Friston for the position of Head of Graphics. Dr Friston has a background in electrical engineering and comes to us from UCL where he worked as part of the Virtual Environments and Computer Graphics group working on rendering, networking, and immersive virtual worlds. Dr Friston has previously worked on the development of the 3D Repo web client as a contractor and we’re excited to have his expertise as part of the 3D Repo team.
On the commercial and customer support side of the business we have had two new Senior Account Managers join us; Jack Williams, who is based in London, and ,Joe Lawson, who is based in the Midlands and is also covering North UK. Earlier this year we also welcomed a new Business Development Associate, Will Mapus-Smith, and Product Implementation Specialist, Mia Dibe, to support our planned growth. Finally, expanding our in-house development capabilities, we have hired two more Software Engineers, Haroon Haider, and, Christos Tsiotsias, to help us implement the ambitious product roadmap we have planned for the near future.
A big thanks to all of our users and supporters of 3D Repo. We’re looking forward to exciting times ahead!
