Radan Expands its UK Team due to Increased Business

As the world’s most powerful sheet metal software, Radan, continues to go from strength to strength, it has recruited a further four staff in the UK due to increased demand.

Peter Wordsworth, Carl Beebee and John Roche have been appointed sales executives, with Tony Moriarty becoming a Radan systems engineer.

Having worked for Radan in various roles for 19 years, Peter Wordsworth is already well known to many customers through his most recent position in the Professional Services Team, producing bespoke software for customers with specific requirements, to improve their design and manufacturing while reducing costs. He originally joined Radan as a trainer, before becoming a senior application engineer.

Carl Beebee is also well known to many customers through his work as a Radan senior application engineer for 11 years. His technical knowledge covers the full product range, including AutoCAD Inventor, along with the estimate-to-invoice package e2i which he used extensively as a customer before joining Radan.

The third new sales executive, John Roche, who will look after Scotland and Ireland, comes with a wealth of sheet metal experience over 20 years, as well as working previously for Radan as a systems engineer.

Completing the new line-up is Tony Moriarty, who rejoins Radan as a systems engineer. He has extensive experience of working with Radan both in the UK and the USA. He left Radan to sell machine tools in his native Ireland, but continued to regularly endorse the Radan software.

Radan UK sales director Kevin O’Connor says: “These additions to our team are vital, as demand for Radan has grown this year. Also, Radan’s powerful new nester which was introduced in the 2010 R2 release takes it to the next level, and has proved to be very popular. And exciting new developments in the forthcoming 2011 R1 release are likely to make Radan an even more tempting prospect for CNC machine users.

“Peter, Carl, John and Tony all bring valuable experience and knowledge to their new roles, which will help show businesses how Radan can take them to the next level.”

The strengthening of the team comes after CIMDdata’s comprehensive global report on the industry earlier this year placed the Planit group, overall, in the Number One spot for marketshare on the basis of industrial seats installed in 2009, and in second place for industrial seats shipped. And CIMdata forecast that Planit will retain both its Number One and Number Two spots in 2010.
