Qualsys Welcomes New Team Members

Qualsys is delighted to welcome five new team members who have joined us over the past few months.

The company is always excited to introduce new talent to further advance EQMS and the services we provide. 

Mike Pound, Managing Director at Qualsys: "It is great to have so many skilled professionals joining us with the same drive and enthusiasm that Qualsys was founded on. It is a pleasure to provide our employees with a positive environment to learn and thrive in, knowing that they are getting the experience needed to do great work.” 

Kate Armitage - Product Quality Assurance Manager


Kate joins Qualsys as a software Product Manager. She joins us with over 15 years’ experience in IT Solution Delivery and Quality System Management. Kate will be coordinating a number of exciting new projects, working closely with our new and existing customers and our development team to progress EQMS. 

Not one to sit quietly in the corner, Kate wears her heart on her sleeve and gets stuck into every project. She is looking forward to applying her skills to a new challenge and getting to know the Qualsys team. 

At the weekends you will find Kate hiking in the Peaks, knee-deep in mud, with a flask of tea and a slab of flapjack. 

To contact Kate, you can email her on kate.armitage@qualsys.co.uk.
