New managing director for Whitehouse Scientific

Whitehouse Scientific, a leading producer of glass microspheres for calibration, has promoted Jamie Storey to the position of managing director. Jamie Storey has worked at Whitehouse Scientific for almost ten years and in his new role assumes management responsibility for the company while founder Dr Graham Rideal continues to steer as chief executive officer. Director Lauren Prince leads the company’s sales and marketing activities.

“I am delighted to welcome Jamie to his new role,” said Graham Rideal. “Not only has he been involved in managing the company over recent years, he has also been running the lab and has overseen production. This combination of experience and expertise means he has a unique insight into our products, as well as understanding our customers and their needs.”

Explaining the change to his own role Dr Rideal, who is recognised internationally as an expert in the calibration field, is looking forward to focusing even more on scientific affairs: “As CEO I intend to concentrate on the company’s scientific and product development, and will also be able to accept the many invitations to participate in industry conferences, provide input to international standards committees, and fulfil an increasing number of speaking engagements.”
