Paramex has announced that British designer, Wayne Burgess, is to oversee the group’s expanding design operations. Burgess joining as Chief Design Officer signals the start of a new era of contemporary, technology-driven design practice.
Wayne commented: “The global pandemic has changed the way we all work and proven what we already knew; that we can successfully create cars, products and visual assets remotely, in the digital realm. I am tasked with overseeing this very exciting period of innovation at Paramex, helping our clients move their businesses forward by offering state of the art services.”
“Having spent nearly 30 years designing cars for some of the most prestigious brands in the business, it’s time for me to share the benefit of that knowledge and experience with the widest possible audience, as our industry moves towards an era of sustainable, connected, zero emissions and, ultimately, autonomous vehicles.”
Phil Hands, CEO, Paramex, said: “Wayne is an outstanding and exceptional designer with a strong back catalog, boasting some of the most prestigious names from across the automotive and design world. He brings with him a wealth of experience, not just within automotive design but in understanding the developing tech in the design industry, and this is where Paramex excels. He joins us at a very exciting time as we accelerate through a period of growth, expanding our team and moving into new facilities in the heart of the UK automotive landscape.”
Burgess will oversee the creative design, digital modeling, digital visualization and engineering services Paramex offers to the transport design and consumer product industries.
