Chess Technologies Ltd announces the new position of Chief Executive Officer and the opening of their first office in the United States as part of an accelerated growth programme for the company.
Graham Beall, the founder, and until recently Managing Director of Chess Dynamics Ltd, is appointed by the Chess Board to the new role of CEO of the parent company Chess Technologies, to develop Chess as it focuses on growing the business both in the UK and internationally.
“I am delighted to announce the appointment of Graham Beall as Chief Executive Officer of Chess Technologies. He brings a wealth of experience not only of electro optic and surveillance technologies, but also our targeted markets. His appointment will enable him to focus on the continued growth of the Chess Group, as we look to double the turnover and significantly grow our profitability,” said Jeff Perrin, Chairman of Chess Technologies Ltd.
One of the important steps in the future development of Chess is the establishment of a US office in Denver, Colorado.
“Our recently opened office in Denver provides a base to spearhead our growth in the increasingly important US market where we have been seeing strong growth, especially for our counter UAV system, AUDS,” said Graham Beall.
The Chess Group provides electro optic surveillance systems for both land and maritime use in the defence and critical national infrastructure markets. It has offices in the UK in Horsham, West Sussex, Wokingham, Berkshire and Plymouth, Devon; and in the US in Denver, Colorado.
