2G Robotics Announces CEO Leadership Transition

Source: 8/4/2020, Location: North America

Jason Gillham, founding Chief Executive Officer of underwater laser scanner and imaging systems specialist, 2G Robotics, is stepping down from his role at the company this month (August 2020).

He will remain available to the board of directors and to parent company Sonardyne Group during the leadership transition period. Chris Gilson, 2G Robotics’ Product Development Manager, will take over as Acting General Manager.

Founded in 2007 and headquartered in Ontario, Canada, 2G Robotics is a leader in mobile scanning and imaging technologies that improve the speed and accuracy of subsea inspection using remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) and manned-submersibles.

Under Gillham’s leadership, the company pioneered the use of lasers to generate high-density point clouds that help identify small features, defects and collect precision measurements for a variety of survey tasks. The company counts amongst its global user base those working within offshore survey and structural monitoring, marine archaeology, and mine detection and classification.

Gillham says, “I am incredibly proud of the market and technology leadership we have undertaken and what the 2G Robotics team has accomplished. With the company now as part of Sonardyne Group, I look forward to seeing new leadership build on what we have created. I would like to thank the staff, customers and partners who have been part of the journey so far and trust they will continue to drive the company forward.”

Stephen Fasham, 2G Robotics’ chairman and Sonardyne Group’s Chief Operating Officer, says, “Jason has put 2G Robotics on a great course for the future and he leaves behind a strong and empowered management team. We all owe him tremendous gratitude for the vision that started the company and his contribution to delivering a fantastic technology success story. We’re working with the 2G Robotics team to deliver the next chapter and want to thank Chris for providing strong leadership during this transition.”

2G Robotics was acquired by Sonardyne Group in early 2020. The acquisition was the latest step in Sonardyne Group’s long-term growth strategy to build a family of companies with complementary products and services for the marine sector. As part of Sonardyne Group, 2G Robotics’ product and service offering is already benefitting from its relationship with other group companies, which include Chelsea Technologies, EIVA, Sonardyne International Ltd., and Wavefront Systems.
