JAVAD GNSS Hires Head of Product Development

Industry veteran Simon Baksh is joining JAVAD GNSS as Head of Product Development. Baksh trained as a chartered surveyor and first applied his land and hydrographic survey expertise to optimize oil exploration working for Schlumberger internationally. He has since held increasingly senior product management roles in companies such as Trimble, Altus, Novatel, and Carlson Software. During this time, he was able to work on the introduction of many technologies for land survey, notably RTK GNSS, Inertial Navigation Systems, and wireless communications. His experience extends to business development, acquisitions and partnerships, and product marketing.   JAVAD GNSS CEO Nedda Ashjaee stated: “We’ve known and respected Simon for quite some time and he brings a wealth of experience and expertise in product development. We’re excited to have him join us to apply his intimate knowledge and expertise of the industry to our next generation of JAVAD GNSS products.” Baksh is looking forward to the next chapter in his career: “I’m delighted to be joining JAVAD given their wealth of technology innovation and I look forward to building on this to meet current and future market needs.”
