The management team comprises of:
Barry Preston, Chief Scientific Officer, BSc. (Hons) Manchester University 1971
Barry worked for 34 years in GE Lighting holding positions of responsibility in engineering, quality, design and strategic planning for High Intensity Discharge lamps and managed the launch of quartz and ceramic lamps. He has corporately certified 6-Sigma Master Black Belt status and holds numerous joint patents and has co-authored a number of papers including the chapter on metal halide light sources in ‘Lamps and Lighting’ (Arnold Press).
Stuart Mucklejohn, Technical Operations Manager, BSc, PhD Chemistry, Exeter University
For 27 years, Stuart was engaged in the design, development and production of light-sources with GE Lighting. He has published widely on the science and technology of light sources, high temperature chemistry and thermodynamic data. He was the project manager for In-Situ Resource Utilization (ISRU) studies funded by NASA/ESA. He is the winner of the IEC Centenary Challenge with Professor Georges Zissis and was a Visiting Fellow at Nottingham Trent University 2007-2010.
Steven Doyle, Product Development Manager, BSc Chemistry
Steven has extensive experience of process engineering, continuous improvement and quality control in production and technology companies; this includes implementing Kanban/Pull systems, Lean Techniques and Value Stream Mapping.
Michael Whiting, Senior Experimental Scientist
Michael graduated from Hull University in 2015 with a Master’s in Physics. His Master’s project was low cost, low temperature reduction of Graphene Oxide. He is a specialist in applied physics with experience gained from academia and industry. He is a hands-on physicist with expertise in photometry, RF systems and experimental equipment design and is responsible for R&D projects and equipment maintenance and calibration.
Stuart Stoddart, Commercial Development & Global Sales
Stuart has a record in developing businesses from seed stage to exit. The earlier part of his career was in building a large distribution business with a national footprint and international reach. Over the past five years, his focus has been on new technology for the global green economy particularly lighting, renewable energy and aquaculture.
Peter Crook, Head of Finance: BSc (Hons), C.Eng. MBA
Peter has over 40 years' experience across project management, business consultancy, finance and general management in several industries. He has worked in construction, business improvement and commercialisation projects and with large corporates and SMEs including British Steel, Government Agencies and Coopers & Lybrand.
Future Markets & Applications
Energy efficiency is a global driver within many markets and Ceravision’s core technology has the ability to address these markets. Due to the flexible nature of the technology we are able to facilitate a variety of power levels (400 W to 2.0 kW) and spectra ranging from visible to UV light.
Ceravision’s High Efficiency Plasma (HEP) light is particularly suited to medium and high power applications. The light is emitted from a very small source, which enables Ceravision to accurately focus and distribute the light. This in turn facilitates significantly greater optical performance.
Ceravision maintains an extensive Intellectual Property (“IP”) portfolio comprising Patents, Trade Marks and Design Rights.
