He is continually at the forefront generating new business, representing the company at face to face meetings, presentations, exhibitions, networking events both nationally and internationally.
He admits he has been lucky enough to work with some amazing organisations working on some of the most notable and high profile projects.
Back in the late 1990's he helped set up the Metropolitan Police Computer Aided Modelling Bureau - creating Computer Generated 3D Models for the reconstruction of major crime scenes. Yes, crime did pay!!!
Success took him into the private where he set up a new department utilising Europe's first 3D laser scanner. His enthusiasm and efforts got him involved in surveying and modelling 3D film sets and objects for blockbusting movies such as the  Harry Potter series and James Bond - Die another day.
Today, Derry is responsible for Worldwide Business Development at Platinum 3D Consultants - leaders in Scan to BIM, Laser Scanning and Measured Building Surveying. With offices in Bath UK and Los Angeles USA.

Derry is very loyal, with lots of enthusiasm, affectionately known as "Mr MIPIM", the man behind MIPIM Yes Oui Cannes.
