Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology appoints new managing director

UK-based plasma etch and deposition processing system manufacturer Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology (OIPT) has appointed Richard Pollard as managing director.

Most recently, Pollard was with spectrometer and light source provider Ocean Optics Inc (Halma plc), where he was president based in Florida, USA. He previously held several senior leadership roles at Halma, in operations, sales, marketing and product development in several of its instrumentation and components businesses based in the USA and UK. He hence has a proven track record of delivering results in technology businesses, says OIPT.

"Richard brings his already extensive experience in the high-technology capital equipment sector to lead and develop Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology," comments Ian Barkshire, CEO of parent company Oxford Instruments Group, "As our markets expand, Richard will ensure the continued investment in new technology and applications," he adds.

"Having now spent some time in the factory, the field and in the rest of Oxford Instruments getting to know our people, processes, products, our markets and how the business works, I am confident that this new position will enable me to fully utilize my wide knowledge of leading a successful global business," says Pollard.

Pollard is a Chartered Engineer, with a BEng Manufacturing Engineering from Brunel University and an MBA from the Open University Business School, Cambridge.
