Antycip Simulation, a VR and 3D immersive solutions integrator and simulation software provider, has announced two key appointments to support the growth of its business.
Amir Khosh joins as business developer based at its Adderbury office in Oxfordshire (UK), while Quentin Blancheri has taken up the position of key account manager out of the company’s Paris headquarters.
Amir comes to Antycip Simulation from Avaya, a global leader in communication solutions, where he held the position of sales engineer for UK and Ireland. In his new role as business developer, Khosh will focus on Antycip’s key suppliers including Lumiscaphe, TechViz and CM Labs, opening up emergent opportunities for immersive visualisation, construction simulation and collaborative design applications for the company. His remit will extend across key markets including the UK, Ireland, the Netherlands and Scandinavia.
Using his technical background together with his commercial skills, Khosh will introduce potential customers to the very latest technologies in VR and simulation; dissecting their technical requirements and together with the extended Antycip Simulation team of experts, propose end to end solutions tailored to their needs. Khosh will take a lead role in developing new business opportunities with key partners.
“I’m thrilled to join such a knowledgeable and experienced technical team during such an important period of growth for the company," said Khosh. "Antycip is uniquely positioned to serve a range of industries, with access to a great portfolio of products in both software and hardware via its partners. I look forward to showcasing the truly bespoke solutions that Antycip Simulation can offer to its customers.”
“Amir is a valuable asset to Antycip Simulation as we continue to hone our strategy of placing increased focus on COTS based solutions for aerospace, defence and commercial applications and integrated visual display solutions,” added John Mould, head of commercial sales UK at Antycip Simulation. “We’ve seen significant growth in commercial simulation and large scale data applications in recent years with new customers and projects in the transport, energy, retail and engineering sectors, and are now putting renewed investment into this area.”
In parallel, Quentin Blancheri assumes the role of key account manager for Antycip Simulation’s French office, dedicated to the simulation market for the defence, aeronautics and aerospace industries in France as well as in French speaking BeNeLux. Responsible for driving the products and solutions available from partner companies including VT MAK, AGI, CM Labs, Triangraphics and RT Dynamics, he will oversee a number of Antycip Simulation’s key clients, including the French ministry of armed forces (DGA), Ruag, MINDEF and NAVAL GROUP.
“I’m committed to finding solutions for clients, accompanying them from the very early stages of a project through the development and implementation process until completion – to ensure they receive the best possible service at every stage,” commented Blancheri. “I’m delighted to be taking up this position working in such a fast-moving, constantly evolving and exciting industry.
“Antycip Simulation has incredibly strong partnerships which in turn creates more opportunities for users. The hardware and software sides of the projects Antycip caters for are treated equally as important; with COTS products and solutions that can be tailored to specific needs, Antycip can handle projects from end to end and I’m proud to be part of such an expert team.”
Johan Besnainou, Antycip Simulation director for France and Spain, added: “Quentin is a very welcome addition to our team and will help us to continue to deliver the very best service to our clients. His experience and skill-set are the perfect fit for our business as we invest in our future growth strategy.”
