Adept Scientific appoints new managing director

Adept Scientific has appointed Mike Pisapia as managing director of the company. He takes on this new role as Adept's co-founder, Dr Paul Bragg, steps back from the day-to-day running of the Company after 26 years at the helm. Paul remains chairman of the Adept Scientific Group and will continue to play an active, hands-on role.

Mike Pisapia joined Adept in January 2007 as General Manager, with a strong technology and engineering background in data acquisition, test and measurement, process control, maths and simulation software.

'I relish the challenge of ensuring that Adept Scientific continues its long story of success', he said, 'and I'm confident that we are going to scale even greater heights.'

Paul Bragg added: 'I've known, admired and trusted Mike for many years and was delighted when he agreed to join Adept in 2007. Since then he's reinvigorated our sales team and his wide experience of the engineering market and his successful track record have benefited us enormously.'

Founded in 1984 Adept Scientific has grown into a leading supplier of software and hardware products for research, scientific, engineering and technical applications on desktop computers, with a global turnover of almost $10 million, employing more than 50 professionals with offices in three countries and customers all over the world.
