Among them are multiple first-time roles for the business, including Chief Operating and Marketing Officers and Head of Machine Learning, highlighting Vicon's commitment to operational excellence, designing and developing premium motion capture technology and elevating its brand presence globally.

The Vicon appointments are as follows:
Pablo Callejo, formerly Strategic Business Development Director, has been promoted into the newly-created role of Chief Operating Officer.

As a dedicated senior manager across these key operational roles, Callejo will play a central role in helping Vicon capitalize on pivotal business opportunities.

Chris Hoskin has been named Vicon’s first Chief Marketing Officer. Hoskin was formerly Regional Director of Marketing, EMEA for Narvar and has more than 15 years’ experience in senior B2B marketing roles. Hoskin will report to Vicon’s CEO Imogen Moorhouse and will focus on both brand and revenue growth.

Timothy Smith has been named Head of Machine Learning. Smith has over a decade of experience working with machine learning for computer vision and other applications and was most recently an Engineering Manager at Twitter. Smith will accelerate Vicon's ability to deploy machine learning solutions to motion capture at scale, and will play a crucial role in leading the company’s exploration and development of new technologies.
