Click appoint NASA boffin as web chief

Click has appointed ex-NASA researcher Trevor Tsang as its web development manager.

Click’s new website will include features such as a new B2B interface, more comprehensive customer information and an integral analytic package. Click is anticipating a roll out this summer.

Tsang joined Click in late May from his position as co-founder of eGov Monitor. After gaining his PhD in remote sensing from University College London in 1997, Tsang worked as a researcher for NASA on the EOS-Terra satellite programme in the US.

Steve Teague, managing director of Click, says: “As an online broker our website is fundamental to our business. Bringing in someone of Trevor’s calibre will enhance the website’s function beyond your ordinary web – his work to date has already extended our expectations.

“By utilising Trevor’s expertise in search engine optimisation and his experience in internet strategy development, we aim to harness the power of the net in advance of our competitors.”
