Paul Dixon, Managing Director

After qualifying as a radiographer, I have spent much of my professional career taking radiographic knowledge in to the corporate world. When not running the ship at Rothband or visiting customers, you can find me spending time with the family. To unwind, I like nothing more than going for a run or a nice long bike ride.
