Our team


Dean Kavanagh

Managing Director

”I joined QED in 2006 as Service Manager and have worked through a number of operational roles before moving into Programme Management within the New Product Innovation (NPI) department in 2010.

No two days are the same at QED. We consistently challenge ourselves to be the best and hence create the best equipment for our customers. My role allows us to make quick progress and not be slowed by bureaucracy. This means that our strong efforts to improve internal and external collaboration on NPI yields excellent results and products / projects delivered quicker.

The future at QED is very exciting as we look to bring new products into new markets, hopefully building on the strength of our current high export contribution.”

Paul Gooch

Global Sales and Marketing Director

“As a sales and marketing specialist I bring a different perspective to QED.  I have experience as the leading role within a number of tech start-up businesses, as well as holding senior business development and service delivery roles within the corporate world. I now lead the team in expanding the distribution of QED products globally.

Carl Harris de Melo

Operations Manager

“I joined QED in 2014 with the objective of implementing my strong background in operational roles and process improvement to deliver consistent turnaround and exceptional customer service, servicing and calibrating instruments worldwide.  Myself and the Service Centre team are working tirelessly to exceed your expectations by delivering outstanding quality and hassle free service.

Our team here at the QED Service Centre take great pride in our vast experience, technical knowledge and quality of work.  When you think of the QED Service Centre, think of easy to deal with, competent, experienced, flexible, fast and focussed on your needs.”

Craig Millar

Engineering Manager

“I have worked for QED since 2001, starting as apprentice. I have had roles as a Service Engineer, Technical Support Engineer, and now, Engineering Manager. It is my responsibility to ensure that our new product development team deliver new products to the market on time, to budget, that exceed our customer’s requirements. The customer facing roles I have experienced at QED ensure that the customer is always at the forefront of our minds when we develop new products for the ever changing and demanding applications across the globe, and we are always looking for your valued feedback to make our products better or your working lives easier.”

Technical Support

Anthony Li

Technical Support Engineer

“Being part of the technical support team presents new and constant challenges every day.  We work closely with the all departments here at Geotech, using your feedback and on-site experience to build upon our product range.  We are also the first line of support to any queries you may have in which we aim to react quickly and efficiently.  Whether working on future development projects or discussing instruments with consumers, our goal is to provide the user with best instrument and experience as possible.”

Tim Wilson

Senior Technical Support Engineer

“I have worked for Geotech for 30 years and during my time here have been involved in many areas of the business.  My position as Senior Technical Support Engineer is energising as no two days are alike.  I am in a position where I can assist our clients with not only how best to use our instrumentation but also to assist in many other ways.

My role takes me overseas for a fairly significant amount of time each year which is interesting as I am able to see first-hand the operations and applications where our instrumentation is used. This gives a great insight as to the challenges our clients face on a daily basis which often I am able to help with and also means I am better placed to contribute to future design requirements for our instrumentation.”
