Getech sales and marketing director to step down

Getech sales and marketing director Dr Paul Carey will step down from the board and leave the group on 31 December. Succeeding him as the sales and marketing director will be Jules Cullen. Cullen is currently Getech's marketing director and also heads up sales for products and services produced under the Group's ERCL and Exprodat brands.

Chief executive Jonathan Copus said: "Paul has been a valued member of the Board, and I would like to thank him for all he has done for the Getech Group. On his departure, Paul will not be replaced on the board.

"Across five years of service, Paul has worked to reposition Getech's sales and marketing activities around an expanding suite of products and services. I and the board wish Paul every success in his future endeavours.

"I am pleased to be welcoming Jules Cullen to Getech's senior management team. Jules joined the Group through the recent acquisition of Exprodat and brings with her 25 years of product-focused sales and marketing experience in the petroleum industry.

"In her 10 years at Exprodat Jules established a global client base for its software products and technical services and expanded the company's commercial reach into new markets within the natural resources sector, including the nuclear industry and agriculture."
