Opening our doors to newest recruit Chris Towey, who will assume the role of Senior Firmware & Software Engineer
As we continued to grow our reputation as one of the UK’s leading full service Industrial design consultancies, it became apparent that our Electronics team required additional strengthening and expansion. Equally, when coupling this factor with the increased demand for our design services today, we knew it was apparent that an extra addition to the team was required to help us fulfil our client’s needs.
Chris Towey joins the Design Reality team with over 5+ years’ experience working in the embedded electronics industry, developing electronic products from research concepts through to final product release. Within this experience, Chris has been involved with the implementation of full application software to high coding standards and has vast experience in zigbee development and wireless communications within an embedded environment.
Having graduated as a Masters of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (M.E.E.) from Loughborough University, Chris’s addition will prove highly valuable for the entire design team, as our full service design offering becomes much strengthened – meaning we can work more efficiently and effectively and also offer a wider variety of options to our clients.
"It is very fortunate that we were able to find someone of Chris’s calibre to fulfil this role, as he not only brings with him great experience, but also fits in with our ethos of design innovation and exceptional service" said Peter Smith, Marketing Executive.
Amongst previous roles taken up by Chris during his professional career, his role as R&D Electronics Engineer at Titan Products Ltd stands out the most. Whilst in this role, he was an integral member of the R&D team who oversaw every aspect of the product lifecycle of electronic development, from Research, through to schematic and PCB layout prototypes, to initial release and then final release of products. With the skills and talents Chris brings with him, this also grants the potential opportunity to look at other market sectors, and seek new opportunities for Design Reality.
Upon joining Design Reality, Chris said "Everyone here is so friendly yet 100% focused on delivering the products as a team, I can’t wait to get stuck in with the expanding Electronics department and begin applying the knowledge I have of the electronics industry to aid in making our clients designs a reality"
