Tharsus Group, a specialist in the design and manufacture of robotic and electromechanical systems, has announced the appointment of Tim Ensor as its Chief Commercial Officer.
Most recently, Tim was a Commercial Director at Cambridge Consultants, where he oversaw a 20-fold growth in their connectivity business over four years. Prior to this, Tim held a number of senior commercial and technical roles including at management consultancy, A.T. Kearney and also as CTO of a high-tech start-up. Mirroring his professional experience, Tim’s education is a sought-after blend of technology and commerce, with an Electronics and Communications degree from the University of Bath, and an MBA from the University of Cambridge.
As CCO of Tharsus, Tim will be responsible for attracting new customers and promoting Tharsus’ position as the emerging leader in the UK custom robotics sector.
Speaking of his new role and plans for the Group, which has turned over £20m for the first time this year, Tim said: “I’m really excited to be joining Tharsus at this significant stage in its growth. The company is rapidly establishing itself as the UK’s leading designer and manufacturer of robotic systems. I’m thrilled to be able to spearhead our efforts in helping customers successfully navigate the increase in robotics and automation in their sectors. The combination of our expertise, facilities and approach means that Tharsus is pretty uniquely positioned to do this.”
“In addition to Tharsus’ own successes, the fact that the UK government has seen the importance of Robotics R&D and has chosen to invest in this country’s capabilities makes it an exciting time to be in this industry.”
