Tim Monks - Third Dimension CTO and founderTim, an engineer and entrepreneur, founded Third Dimension in 1995 in order to commercialise the results of his PhD research work in 3d machine vision.

Initially providing consultancy and bespoke developments for leaders in the metrology and aerospace businesses, in 2004 Third Dimension moved into product development and launched the GapGun range of innovative laser based measurement systems.

After spending a four year period building up the company's R&D department as CTO, Tim returned to his former CEO role in 2015 in order to take Third Dimension to the next stage in its growth. 

Tim is also Third Dimension's Chairman, and retains a strong interest in corporate responsibility, sustainability and company culture.

When not in the office, he's generally goes rock climbing, and has climbed worldwide, including El Capitan and the Old Man of Hoy. British winters being what they are, Mountain Biking provides a great rainy day alternative.
