SeeByte has appointed John Stout as Offshore Business Manager. John will be responsible for SeeByte's product and service offering to the offshore industry worldwide. Both SeeTrack Offshore, the most advanced Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) Dynamic Positioning (DP) available for retro-fitting to standard ROV systems and AutoTracker, a solution that enables Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) to detect and track pipelines, will fall under his direct responsibility.
John's career has been at the forefront of innovation, delivering state-of-the-art software solutions to customers in the oil and gas and petrochemical industries globally. From his early days in Intergaph (UK) Ltd delivering CAD solutions to his more recent spell with Bentley Systems (UK) helping to provide GIS solutions, John has been able to help his customers realise greater value and benefit from using the right software at the right time.
Ioseba Tena, SeeByte's Sales Manager, said: "John is clearly a great listener and he is able to think like our customers. He is focused on providing commercial benefits to our clients, which is very relevant in today's uncertain economic climate. John also has a strong engineering background and he is therefore also able to understand the technical issues that drive decisions. I am confident that our offshore customer base will keep growing under John's stewardship."
"I have been impressed by SeeByte's trusted reputation for delivering on-time and professionally, while always maintaining a friendly attitude. Their current product and solution offering that I have now seen firsthand and the solutions that are currently being developed are jaw-dropping," said John. "I cannot wait to meet and establish enduring relations with our existing customers and develop new long term relationships."
