Mark Gammon

Brief Biography

Mark Gammon is the technical director at ITI Ltd, based outside Cambridge UK, and product manager for the ITI advanced geometry processing tool, CADfix. After graduating with a degree in engineering science from Durham University he was first employed as an aerodynamicist in the UK military aerospace industry. During his time at BAE Systems he was fortunate enough to be involved in the transition from mainframe computing to the first 3D enabled desktop computers. After experiencing first-hand the game-changing potential that 3D digital modelling offered engineers, he moved into the commercial software business with ITI, where he has worked in the field of advanced geometry processing for the last 25 years.
