Senior Consultant – European Union/NATO
Mr. Winstanley brings with him nearly 30 years of experience as an entrepreneurial executive with a substantial track record for applying innovation in the defense, security, transport and medical sectors spanning Academia, Government, SMEs and International PLCs. Highly networked and proven at understanding market needs leading to the delivery of differentiated solutions complemented by well honed business skills including leadership (350+ technical and general staff), substantial international P&L experience (>$100M), rapid sales growth, capital raising and realizing value from technology.
With a focus on laser systems, his early work directly led to the viability of laser-based countermeasures being established. This provided a firm foundation to develop broader defense interests including avionics research & integration, platform survivability & technology insertion. The latter area provided the opportunity, and subsequent motivation, for Mr. Winstanley to pursue the identification, acquisition and integration of technology, often from non-traditional adjacent market sectors.
This interest continues today and Mr. Winstanley has applied this expertise to found, and then run, SMEs that are active in the transport and medical sectors. More recently, the business model that Mr. Winstanley has developed and implemented has attracted the attention of UK Government Departments that can no longer sustain research investment and need to develop and deploy new capabilities rapidly.
Mr. Winstanley holds a degree in Applied Physics & Laser Technology from the University of Hull and is a Member of the Royal College of Defence Studies (RDCS).
