In recognition of the growing subsea market in Asia, further business development in this region will be led by Manuel Pimentel, who has been promoted from Senior Engineering Analyst to Regional Development Manager (Asia).
AgileTek Managing Director, Steve Rossiter said: “We are delighted to have welcomed Soo-hyeong and Andrew to the AgileTek team. They are hugely talented young engineers who have already made a big impact on the company and hit the ground running.
“We need talented and enthusiastic individuals to help us fulfil our ambitions and these appointments provide us with an excellent platform for continued growth in 2018. Soo-hyeong and Andrew are fantastic additions to our team and we are looking forward to seeing them progress further.
“Manuel’s promotion is also well-earned and his experience and skillset will be invaluable in helping us to identify and further develop opportunities in Asia. We are confident that this new position will help us work towards fulfilling our growth plans, as well as building on our global presence.”
Soo-hyeong, 29, previously worked at a computer aided engineering software provider, while Andrew, 22, recently graduated from Imperial College London with a degree in Aerospace Engineering.
