Multidisciplinary CGI consultancy, Escape Technology, has appointed industry veteran, Andrew Condie, as Professional Services Director.
Condie takes up the new position to boost the company’s engineering and consultancy offerings as it builds on its provision of support services and IP. He will also be responsible for developing the business’ wider offering as it expands into new markets.
“Andrew will be a major asset for the company and his appointment demonstrates our on-going commitment to provide the best consultation and support services available in the worlds of VFX and CGI,” says Mark Cass, managing director of Escape Technology. “We are also expanding in other spaces including architecture, automotive, and product design where our often bleeding-edge experiences from the worlds of film and TV are having a major impact on workflows.”
With nearly twenty years’ engineering experience as CTO and COO in companies such as PixitMedia, Prime Focus, and Azure, Condie joins Escape Technology at a time of sustained growth.
“I’m thrilled to be joining such an exciting and capable team," Condie comments. "I’m excited to see where the business can go and couldn't wait to start work in a role helping Escape to push on to the next level."
An established reseller of hardware and software, Escape Technology has been supporting post production houses, architects, and CGI professionals for over ten years. Partnering with vendors that include HP, NVIDIA, and Autodesk, the business continues its growth in the UK and Germany.
“While we’re still very much a reseller, our consultancy and support services are what make us really stand out,” adds Cass. “It’s something we’re proud to offer our customers, ensuring they get the right hardware, software, and infrastructure to create CG content in a raft of diverse markets.”
