One of the most significant risks companies have when they grow is the acquisition of the talent necessary to continue scaling their activities and revenues. SciDev are clearly addressing this risk by not only bringing on Mr. Dale Barron and Mr. Thomas Rivett as per this announcement but also by bringing on the ProSol Australia team which was acquired as part of SciDev's acquisition of that company. The fact that Mr. Barron has worked with SciDev CEO Mr. Lewis Utting during their time together at major chemical company BASF increases the likelihood that Mr. Barron will be able to perform to expectation in this new role as the company's Chief Operating Officer.
