COVENTRY, England, Sept. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ --
Renowned design and engineering consultancy, Paramex, has today announced that British designer, Wayne Burgess, is to oversee the group's expanding design operations.
Established in 1999, Paramex is currently undergoing a period of accelerated growth and is to move into new facilities in Coventry, the heart of Britain's automotive industry. A leader in digital design, visualisation & innovation, serving the automotive and engineering sectors, Paramex is expanding its services and setting up an academy to train future generations to help ease the shortage of highly-skilled young people joining the industry.
Burgess joins as Chief Design Officer and his appointment signals the start of a new era of contemporary, technology driven design practice. Following the recent global pandemic, the adoption of digital modelling, visualisation and presentation tools has become much more prevalent to enable businesses to maintain creative momentum.
Burgess will oversee the creative design, digital modelling, digital visualisation and engineering services Paramex offers to the transport design and consumer product industries. He brings a wealth of creative design and leadership experience, having worked for some of the world's finest, premium automotive manufacturers including Jaguar Land Rover, Aston Martin, Rolls Royce and Geely.
Wayne commented: "The global pandemic has changed the way we all work and proven what we already knew; that we can successfully create cars, products and visual assets remotely, in the digital realm. I am tasked with overseeing this very exciting period of innovation at Paramex, helping our clients move their businesses forward by offering state of the art services."
"Having spent nearly 30 years designing cars for some of the most prestigious brands in the business, it's time for me to share the benefit of that knowledge and experience with the widest possible audience, as our industry moves towards an era of sustainable, connected, zero emissions and, ultimately, autonomous vehicles."
Phil Hands, CEO, Paramex, said: "Wayne is an outstanding and exceptional designer with a strong back catalogue, boasting some of the most prestigious names from across the automotive and design world. He brings with him a wealth of experience, not just within automotive design but in understanding the developing tech in the design industry, and this is where Paramex excels. He joins us at a very exciting time as we accelerate through a period of growth, expanding our team and moving into new facilities in the heart of the UK automotive landscape."
