Heidelberg Engineering has recruited imaging expert Tim Cole as its clinical market development manager.

Following six years with Topcon, he will be supporting Christopher Mody, Heidelberg director of clinical affairs, in training clinicians and supporting their research projects.

Cole was trained as an NHS ophthalmology photographer at Manchester Royal Eye Hospital.

Heidelberg Engineering UK director Krysten Williams said: ‘We are very focused on strengthening our education team, via our academy, and to hold our position as leaders in clinical education. Tim comes to us with quite a pedigree and will help us with education at every level from hospital, research and high street optometry.’
