Steve Emerson, Managing Director

iRed Appoints Steve Emerson as New Managing Director in a Strategic Move Following Founder’s Retirement.

Emsworth, UK November 14, 2023—iRed–A Volatus Aerospace Company is pleased to announce the appointment of Steve Emerson as its new Managing Director, succeeding the company's founder, Ray Faulkner, who has stepped down following a distinguished career. 

Steve Emerson, an accomplished leader with a proven track record, expressed his enthusiasm for his new role, stating, "It is both an honour and a privilege to helm iRed, building upon the incredible foundation laid by Ray Faulkner and the team. With our revenue already tripled in the past year, we are poised to pursue ambitious growth plans for iRed."

Established in 2001, iRed initially focused on infrared technology, training, and services. The company's expertise in infrared training and inspection remains a cornerstone of its operations. However, the advent of drone technology has broadened iRed's scope, incorporating enhanced thermographic capabilities. This diversification has led to an expansion in drone-related services, equipment sales, and a growing and diverse customer base.

This leadership transition marks a pivotal moment in iRed's journey as the company intensifies its expansion efforts, particularly in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. Steve Emerson's appointment is a testament to iRed's commitment to innovation and excellence as it navigates this new chapter in its corporate narrative.
