A chemist by training, Robin worked at Air Products, Raychem and Pall before joining Oxford Instruments in 1990.

Nathan Hill, Founder and Managing Director of Qi3 commented “I’ve worked with Robin for over thirteen years, so it’s about time he was a director of this business. Robin is well respected by our customers and colleagues alike. This appointment reflects his contribution to the development and management of the business. With the growth of Qi3 over the past two years and a further acceleration this year it’s good to have another director on the board”.
