C-Kore Systems welcomes new board members
27 September 2022
Following continued growth C-Kore Systems is pleased to announce the appointment of Greg Smith and Cynthia Pikaar to the C-Kore Board of Directors.
Greg is one of the founding members of C-Kore and has held the title of General Manager since its inception. With a first-class honours (with distinction) degree in Electronic Engineering, Greg designed C-Kore’s first product the "C-Kore Cable Monitor”. As Operations Director, Greg leads the C-Kore Design and Production Teams in translating customers’ requirements into new C-Kore products to Simplify Subsea Testing.
Cynthia joined C-Kore shortly after the companies’ launch to take up the role of Sales and Marketing Manager. As a mechanical engineer with a background in the design of cables and umbilicals she was an ideal choice to promote mC-Kore’s innovative equipment to the subsea industry. As Sales & Marketing Director, Cynthia, with the assistance of her growing Sales Team (hand-picked for their vast knowledge of the subsea industry), will continue to show more operators and contractors how C-Kore’s services save them both time and money on their offshore campaigns.
Tim Overfield, Managing Director of C-Kore said: "I am delighted to have Greg and Cynthia join the C-Kore Board of Directors. Their hard work and commitment has grown C-Kore to what it is today."
Greg said: "We have a great team who have not only transformed once complex subsea testing techniques into simple easy-to-use tools, but also provide world-class service to our customers. I look forward to continuing to lead our team as we help our customers perform their subsea testing in the most efficient way possible."
Cynthia continued: "It is satisfying to see our core markets in the UK and Australia continue to grow year on year. We have now deployed in over 20 countries with particular interest in North & South America, and Africa this year. Along with our great Sales Team, I look forward to promoting C-Kore’s message further around the globe."
As a two-time winner of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation 2019 and International Trade Award 2021, C-Kore are committed to continually developing ways to undertake subsea testing. As the industry as a whole look to the future and how they can improve current working practices and/or transition to new ways of energy production, these appointments confirm C-Kore’s continued commitment to being an organisation with industry knowledge right at the heart of it.
