Gas Sensing Solutions appoints Julian Hayes as CEO


Gas Sensing Solutions has announced the appointment of Julian Hayes as CEO.

He takes over from Calum MacGregor, who is retiring after 14 years with the Cumbernauld company.

Hayes comes with wealth of knowledge and expertise in helping develop high technology businesses, having previously worked at a number of UK and global semiconductor, laser optics and components businesses.

GSS is a global leader in the development of high-performance carbon dioxide sensors for demanding markets such as aerospace, healthcare and environmental monitoring.

The last 12 months have been particularly strong for Gas Sensing Solutions, having launched three new ultra-low products to market, which have been well received by tier 1 customers. The company has also taken the strategic decision to offer customised solutions, allowing customers to optimise the use of its CO2 sensors for the target application.

Martin Reynard, chairman of GSS, said: “Julian brings significant expertise in helping take high technology businesses to a global audience.

“His experience will be invaluable in maintaining the growth GSS has achieved recently.

“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Calum for his incalculable contribution to the development of GSS and creating the platform for growth.”

Julian Hayes, CEO of GSS, said: “It is an exciting time to be joining Gas Sensing Solutions. The past few years has seen GSS establish itself as the company of choice for high performance CO2 sensors across the globe. I look forward to working with the great team at GSS and helping drive revenue growth with our partners and customers.”
