Tuomas Lievonen – Engineering Director
I am responsible for engineering in Geobear. That basically means that my job is to give a yes/no answer to sales on major technical challenges, and oversee the development of our technical competence. I joined Geobear 15 years ago after my corporate career in blue chip companies, thus being one of the first team members to the current team. During this tenure I have been author of a new patent family and dealt closely with intellectual property. I have been working my way from product manager position to the leadership team. It has been great to witness the growth of team from 3 people to over a 100 colleagues in numerous countries. Although work is sometimes hard and deadlines tight, I am extreme happy to be working at the forefront of changing an industry!
Kevin Doyle – Head of Infrastructure
Geobear approached me through a professional search firm 3 years ago, at that time I was holding Senior Management position with another ground engineering contractor. At first I was a bit sceptical as I had not used the solution before and had little knowledge of the solution and it’s various applications, I had spent the last 20 years giving advice and recommending / Managing various piling or grouting solutions, but was convinced after meeting with Richard and the rest of the Geobear team and discussing the potential to become an industry pioneer by developing this business into heavy civil engineering sectors. After few rounds of mutually pleasant discussions, I chose to accept the position of Head of Infra, covering rail and ports and airport sectors. A decision that has proven to be an exciting one.
