Pulse Structural Monitoring, an Acteon company, has appointed Mike Campbell as its new operations director. Based in the UK, he will lead the production, project management and offshore departments and help to manage Pulse’s recent geographical expansion.
Campbell brings extensive experience to this role, having been responsible for managing manufacturing, quality, health, safety and environment and supply chain for a group of companies with operations in Europe, Asia, the U.S. and Australia. During his time with IAC Acoustics Ltd, Campbell helped the organisation grow from two to nine manufacturing sites and become the world’s largest noise-control company.
Campbell, who studied chemistry at Oxford Brookes University, UK, will apply his supply chain experience to help Pulse deliver complex services to a growing number of clients around the globe and use his knowledge of lean manufacturing methods to help streamline Pulse’s manufacturing processes. This will enhance the quality and flexibility of Pulse operations and cut lead times to meet the demanding schedules of offshore clients.
Richard Kluth, managing director, Pulse Structural Monitoring, said, “Mike will make a strong contribution to our continuing success. He has a wealth of experience and is an expert in lean manufacturing. His skills will help to extend and enhance the Pulse products and services offering and help us to manage our global network of offices, including the two facilities we opened in Bergen, Norway and Singapore last year.”
Campbell added, “I am very excited to have joined Pulse; this is a great opportunity to join a growing company with an excellent track record. Pulse is ideally positioned to offer world class service and be the company of choice for subsea monitoring. I am looking forward to bringing some of my previous experience to the company and to help with its expansion.”
