CNC Robotics appoints former Delcam/Autodesk Director as Chairman

CNC Robotics is pleased to announce the appointment of former Delcam and Autodesk Director, Bart Simpson, as the company’s Non-Executive Chairman.

In this role, Bart will support and advise the existing leadership team as they continue to drive the strong growth that has made CNC Robotics the UK’s leading robot integrator specialising in machining applications.

Bart joined Delcam in 1993 as a Support Engineer in 1993, after gaining a BEng in Aeronautical Engineering at Salford University. He transferred to the company’s marketing department in 1997 and was appointed Marketing Director in 2000. Promotion to the Delcam Group Main Board, as Commercial Director, followed in 2008.

Following the acquisition of Delcam by Autodesk, Bart was appointed Senior Director, Operations, within Autodesk’s Advanced Manufacturing Group. He played a key role in the integration of Delcam into Autodesk and in the transition of the new Group’s sales channel to an SaaS model.

Announcing the appointment, Jason Barker, founder and Chief Technical Officer at CNC Robotics, said, “I am delighted to welcome Bart to the company. I have known him since I began using PowerMill Robot machining software to program my earliest robot-machining projects. He brings with him a wealth of commercial and marketing experience, as well as an extensive range of contacts in the manufacturing business.”

“With the current drive to increase automation, including the use of robots, across many areas of UK manufacturing, CNC Robotics has a great future,” added Bart. “I look forward to helping the company continue its success in providing robots for many kinds of machining applications.”
