Bruce brings 30 years’ experience in the electronics industry, most recently in the hearing aid sector. Bruce’s background includes a BSc in Applied Physics and a Master’s Degree in Information Systems. The first half of his career was devoted to engineering and product management roles within integrated circuit manufacturers in the UK and The Netherlands. Bruce also spent a year in California’s Silicon Valley, learning the latest manufacturing techniques. In 2000, Bruce moved into the hearing aid industry, joining a major European manufacturer of hearing aids. Initially working on the development and introduction of new hearing aid fitting software, his role quickly expanded into technical support for hearing aid fitting, audiological equipment and practice management software.
