AMETEK Land has enhanced its senior management team with the appointment of Christopher Leonard to the role of Director of Development and Product Management.

Mr. Leonard has over 20 years of experience in mechanical and process engineering gained in the oil and gas, chemical, energy, and mining sectors.

He has held roles in industrial application engineering and product commercialization of instrumentation from concept to market-leading brands and has worked for a variety of global industry heavyweights, including Hydratight, Bridon International and most recently Oxford Flow.     

Mr. Leonard will head up AMETEK Land’s global industry management and design engineering teams and build on its reputation for providing accurate and innovative temperature measurement and emissions monitoring solutions.

Development efforts will focus on bringing new products to market that will help industries, such as aluminium, glass, process, power, and steel, meet the demands of an increasingly competitive world, with ever evolving quality requirements coupled with tighter emissions controls and reduced energy consumption targets.

“We are pleased to have Chris join AMETEK Land,” comments Justin Smith, Managing Director. “He has extensive experience in product development and management gained across a number of industries that will be invaluable to this role in fast tracking the development of market-focused and customer-led new products from concept to global brand leadership.”  

“He joins us at a very exciting time for our business as we develop innovative new technologies and instruments to help plants improve productivity while conserving energy and reducing emissions, whether that be through more accurate temperature measurement or through improved combustion or emission monitoring techniques,” he adds. 

As a result of Mr. Leonard’s appointment, Dr. Peter Drögmöller takes up the new position of Director of Innovation and Technology. Dr. Drögmöller has a wealth of industry and product knowledge in industrial infrared camera systems for challenging applications and harsh environments. He will be at the forefront of leading AMETEK Land into new transformational technologies that will shape the future of the business. 

Dr. Drögmöller will continue to develop AMETEK Land’s innovation relationships with strategic partners, universities and research centres globally to ensure that AMETEK Land stays at the forefront of technology and remains the number one choice for temperature measurement and emissions monitoring instrumentation around the world.
