CCW invests in tech team with two new hires

Phil Mitchell

Manchester-based creative production business, CCW, has expanded its tech team even further with two new hires. This is another step in the company’s rapid growth plan to achieve a target of 25% increase in staff headcount. Earlier in the year seven new starters joined the team.

Included in the new hire lineup is Phil Mitchell, a former photographer and architecture student from Liverpool John Moores who joins as their newly appointed 3D Capture Technical Lead.

For over 7 years Phil was a Senior Scanning Technician responsible for developing the in-house studio for Sofology, one of the largest sofa and furniture retailers in the UK. Phil will bring his unique approach to 3D capture to the team, by applying his former knowledge within photography, 3D visualisation, photogrammetry 3D laser capture and specialised understanding of Metrology grade scanning. He’ll help improve efficiencies and keep CCW at the forefront of the industry.

“I’m really excited to be joining CCW in its next phase of growth. There’s so much talent across the team and I can’t wait to see what we can do together to make things faster, more efficient and improve the quality even further. In terms of my personal development, it feels like there’s room for me to grow and I already feel like a valuable member of the team.”

Another new addition to CCW’s tech department is Sam Slater who joins CCW’s impressive tech roster as their Unreal Engine Developer. With a background in VR software development, specialising in Unity and Unreal Engine. He brings with him almost a decade of experience coding and programming (Cloud, front-end, full-stack and hardware). Sam will now bring that wealth of experience to CCW’s tech team to help them to build more amazing products over the next 12 months.

“I’m really excited to be joining a bigger company that seems set for great things. From Day 1, I can tell there are ambitious plans here and I’m excited to be part of that journey. I’m looking forward to being part of the community and having a more varied role – one that’s not confined to a specific technical area.”

Vlad Mulhem, Technology and Innovation Director at CCW, said: “We’re incredibly excited to welcome these new starters to the tech team here at CCW. We love working with new creative and tech talent to help really push CCW’s offerings even further. Looking ahead to the end of 2022 and beyond, we’re aiming to achieve a Net Zero status and the Technology and Innovation department is a crucial part of that initiative.”
