A global expert in laser scan technology, Gary has been involved in 3D laser scanning since its inception in the late 1990s, initially undertaking projects delivering data and 3D models. These included ground-breaking work with Volvo and a huge scanning project for Fluor/TCO in Kazakhstan. This early involvement gave Gary an insight into the fundamental requirements of efficient 3D data capture hardware, processes and most importantly software. Today, now part of AVEVA, Gary works closely with companies in many industries undertaking digital transformation journeys to help them to take ownership of their critical engineering and 3D information. Gary has a Mechanical Engineering background.
