Holding a Bachelor’s Degree in Computing and Cartography from Oxford and a Master’s Degree in Surveying from UCL, Julian started his career in the oil and gas industry as an industrial plant surveyor. He worked on a wide variety of projects, from the North Sea via Africa to Antarctica. During this time he also worked for a start-up that developed photogrammetry solutions, before joining Cyra at the very start of the laser scanning revolution. After the company merged with Leica Geosystems, Julian held positions with responsibility worldwide in sales, product management and business development, advancing laser scanning both commercially and technically. Now with Pix4D in Switzerland, Julian is back in the start-up environment again, pioneering the application of UAV solutions in his role as Business Development Manager.
