Experienced business leader Andrew Bruce joins the company as it navigates sustained growth across global markets.

Radiodetection is pleased to announce the appointment of Andrew Bruce as Managing Director, a role that will draw upon his extensive international experience.

Previously a member of the senior leadership team at IMI Norgren, which employs over 2,000 staff in 19 countries, Andrew has a solid understanding of the technology and manufacturing sectors and has experience of steering company growth in the US, China, India, South America, Eastern and Central Europe, as well as Germany, where he spent ten years leading various high-profile businesses.

There are plenty of exciting opportunities to grow the business, and I will be focussing on these over the coming years. The company has such a strong brand and reputation; it’s an honour to be part of its evolution.”
