Leading Leeds-based digital solutions provider UXG has expanded its team with the appointment of Ryan Hill as product design manager.

Ryan (pictured left) takes on the role left by Garry Pullan, who has been promoted to a newly created head of operations position.

Ryan brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the team, having worked for five years at Decorative Panels, Europe’s leading supplier of flat pack furniture, as a designer on a range of projects for well-known retailers including Wickes and Dunelm.

In his new role, Ryan will be responsible for taking client briefs and internal instructions and creating 2D AutoCAD layouts and 3D models to assist in the manufacturing process. He will also lead on the creation of Bill of Materials, providing a comprehensive inventory of the raw materials, assemblies, subassemblies, parts and components, as well as the quantities of each, needed to manufacture each product.

Commenting on Ryan’s appointment and Garry’s promotion, UXG director Alistair Wright said: “These are exciting times at UXG, with our growing team working on a series of pioneering new projects and products.

“Garry’s recent well-deserved promotion has left some big shoes to fill, but we’re confident that in Ryan we have someone who can take our design capabilities to the next level and wow clients with his creative thinking.”
