Gas Sensing Solutions (GSS) CEO Calum MacGregor is retiring after 14 years with the company and will be replaced by Julian Hayes, the Scottish technology firm said today.

Hayes comes with wealth of knowledge and expertise in helping develop high technology businesses, having previously worked at a number of UK and global semiconductor, laser optics and components businesses.

The last 12 months have been particularly strong for GSS, having launched three new ultra-low products to market, which have been well received by Tier 1 customers.

The company has also taken the strategic decision to offer customised solutions, allowing customers to optimise the use of its CO2 sensors for the target application.

Martin Reynard, Chairman of GSS said, “Julian brings significant expertise in helping take high technology businesses to a global audience.”

“His experience will be invaluable in maintaining the growth GSS has achieved recently.”

“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Calum for his incalculable contribution to the development of GSS and creating the platform for growth.”

Julian Hayes, CEO of GSS said, “It is an exciting time to be joining GSS. The past few years has seen GSS establish itself as the company of choice for high performance CO2 sensors across the globe.”

“I look forward to working with the great team at GSS and helping drive revenue growth with our partners and customers.”
