Talking of his promotion to Design Studio Manager Chris explains, “I am very pleased to have been given the opportunity to become JMDA’s Design Studio Manager. In my new role I will be managing our UK and Italian designers and will also play a supportive role in their career development and progression. Having worked closely as part of the team and through my role as Team Leader I have built synergy within our diverse skill sets, setting goals and organising day to day business operations and distribute resources efficiently.” He adds “I look forward to supervising JMDA’s design projects from start to finish, appropriately managing budgets and timescales to ensure customer satisfaction. I will also continue to grow JMDA, putting in to place effective strategies to develop new business opportunities with clients around the world to further expand the company’s already impressive portfolio.”
Chris is highly skilled in the use of advanced surface and solid CAD modelling and in the engineering design of juvenile market-ready products including car restraint systems, car safety seats and strollers. As he transitions to his role as Design Studio Manager over the coming months he will share his technical knowledge of juvenile consumer goods with the team as well as his understanding of complex industry and CRS regulations.
