2021 marked the start of a new mandate for the management team at the helm of the Organization. In this new video series, the newly appointed department heads introduce themselves to our community, tell us about their journeys and provide their vision for the future of their departments. Christopher Hartley, the new Head of the Industry, Procurement and Knowledge Transfer department and Rhodri Jones, the new Head of the Beams department, inaugurate the series with their messages (below).
Before joining our community, Christopher spent twenty-one years working with the European operational satellite agency for monitoring weather, climate and the environment from space (EUMETSAT). Throughout his career, he has successfully managed major industrial partners and worked with large organizations such as the EU, ESA or the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Rhodri is not a newcomer in the laboratory: his PhD work on resonance ionisation laser spectroscopy led him to be tightly involved with CERN, from his debut as a research fellow in the Beams instrumentation group to a position of group leader, then department head.
