The First Degree Group has a new expanded group structure that is dedicated to extending its portfolio of products and services to existing and potential customers.

After eight years with First Degree Systems Karen Goule has been appointed managing director and CEO of the First Degree Group. The company’s founder Simon Farmer has moved to his new role of creative director in order to focus on creating and developing new products and features.

After 25 years Warren Roberts is moving to the position of technical director and CTO, and Greg Beachim, who has also been with First Degree Systems for several years, has become group chief sales officer.

“Whether rental or purchase options are chosen the First Degree Group offers the foresight and skilled personnel to meet the exacting requirements and challenges faced by their clients,” the company said. “FDS staff members are dedicated industry professionals. For instance, every single member of the installation department has between one and three decades of experience in their respective fields.”
