Julian joins Scion Instruments at a time in its evolution when a wide range of new resources, facilities and investments are being put into place.
Julian brings to Scion extensive experience in the scientific analytical instruments industry. He has previously held senior marketing and product management roles for the likes of Bruker CAM and Thermo Fisher Scientific. Julian’s most recent position was with Bruker Daltonics as Regional Sales and Application Manager where he provided the company with an exceptional increase in sales growth and developed and implemented plans to increase customer focus.
Commenting on his appointment, Julian Phillips said: “The opportunity with Scion to build the organization and lead the growth of the business in the US is extremely exciting and a challenge I am relishing. I am joining the new global leadership team at Scion and together we will be able to develop and deliver the strategies needed to take Scion forward as a major force in gas chromatography markets.”
Scion Instruments was acquired by the Techcomp Group in 2014 and builds on the success and legacy of Varian GC and GC-MS products. As well as delivering its own products and services, Scion is able to provide spares and support for a range of older Varian and Bruker branded GC and GC-MS.
