We are delighted to report that GeoAcoustics is expanding, and we have recently welcomed four new people to the team at our headquarters in Great Yarmouth. All have been selected for demonstrating the skills, experience and enthusiasm needed to ensure the quality that our customers expect, and we are looking forward to welcoming them as part of the GeoAcoustics team over the coming months.

Chris Challiss – Production scheduler
As Production Scheduler, Chris’ main responsibility is to ensure that production of all GeoAcoustics products – off-the-shelf and customised – goes according to plan. Chris has spent more than a decade working in various areas of production at Cefas Technology Limited, including five years as a Production Team Leader, so we are confident that his skills and experience will help to optimise our workflows and ensure that we continue our strong on-time delivery track record for customers all over the world.

Peter Knight – Electronics Engineer
Peter joins GeoAcoustics as an Electronics Engineer, a field that he has worked in for 25 years. His most recent experience includes design of all hardware and supporting software for a machine vision platform that performed real time species recognition on the sea bed using high resolution sonar (10Mbyte/second raw data), in a power constrained real time environment, which alongside with decades of developing electronic systems and embedded software positions him as an ideal candidate to join the development team here at GeoAcoustics.

Andy Saunders – HSEQ Officer (H&S Lead)
Having spent 2006 to 2018 as an Aircraft Technician and Aircraft Engineering Supervisor in the Royal Air Force, and subsequently the last four years as a HSEQ Advisor at Seajacks UK with focus on delivering quality in offshore safety practices, Andy was the natural person for the role of HSEQ Officer and Health & Safety Lead at GeoAcoustics. A fully trained and qualified HSEQ professional, and a member of Institute of Safety and Health since 2019, Andy will help us to ensure a safe environment with processes and workflows adhering to the most stringent checks and balances.

Kevin Wickham – Production Technician
Kevin is a seasoned electronics technician with 45 years working in diverse positions including as Supervisor and Team Leader across industries such as television, audio and video, offshore and most recently accelerometer and instrumentation manufacturing. His vast experience as an electronics technician makes him the perfect fit for GeoAcoustics and we are confident that his skills will prove a massive asset to the production team in Great Yarmouth.
