Graham Beall, the founder of Chess Technologies, which includes Chess Dynamics and Vision4ce Ltd, is stepping down from his role as the Group’s Managing Director, but we are not saying goodbye to him just yet - Graham will be driving our business strategy forward in the US market in his new role as Head of Business Development (US).

What we have achieved over the past 10 years that I have been with the company has been truly impressive and I look forward to taking the business forward into the next chapter of growth.”

Based in Horsham and Plymouth in the UK, Chess was founded in 1993, focused on high precision automation products and solutions for the electronics, medical and aerospace sectors. Since then, the business has evolved into a provider of surveillance and tracking systems for defence and security customers worldwide, including bespoke design and rapid prototyping projects.
