Leadership team

Boris Fačkovec portrait
About Boris

Boris is leading product development and customer success. In his previous career as a McKinsey consultant, he designed and led or supported operations transformations at over 25 manufacturing plants across several industries and regions, with total EBITDA impact of the initiatives exceeding 1B EUR p.a. Building on his prior academic experience, he combines rigorous analytical approaches to losses of equipment utilization (OEE) with the pragmatic daily experience from the shop floor. Boris holds a PhD in mathematical modeling of rare events from the Univeristy of Cambridge, MSc in mathematical modeling of bio- and nanostructures from the Charles University and MEng in chemical engineering from the University of Chemistry and Technology.

Pavel Kohout portrait
About Pavel

Pavel is managing the HW development, procurement, project deployment teams and leading the Polish R&D and service center. Previously he worked at BTL Medical Technologies and at TTP, a technology consultancy at Cambridge. He has broad engineering expertise in product and technology R&D ranging from proof of concept to transfer to manufacturing with experience across a wide range of technical areas from design and tolerance analysis of a switching mechanisms for mass manufacture to prototyping a magnetic field based displacement sensor or automating image analysis of aerosol speed. Pavel graduated with MEng from the University of Cambridge.
