International Labmate welcomes new contributing editor

Jun 27 2013 Read 2141 Times

International Labmate is pleased to welcome Trevor Hopkins as a contributing editor for our range of journals including ILM and Chromatography Today.  A well known figure in the scientific industry, Trevor has an extensive background in separation sciences gained during more than 35 years’ experience as a chromatography applications chemist, successfully combined with a career pathway that has spanned product development, sales and marketing and corporate leadership.

Marcus Pattison, Managing Director at International Labmate said:  “We are delighted that Trevor will be joining the International Labmate Team. Trevor brings a wealth of Industry knowledge, contacts and experience with him and will be reporting on the latest developments in Separation Sciences.”

Trevor’s background in analytical science was first developed through hands-on laboratory training in the role of Laboratory Technician at Sandoz Pharmaceuticals and then as Senior Laboratory Technician at Hazelton Laboratories Europe. With his knowledge of both everyday chromatography laboratory procedures and analytical techniques combined with customer and project management, Trevor then moved into the design of novel uses and methods for HPLC systems and Hypersil consumable products for Shandon Southern Ltd. As this position also required demonstrating products and systems to potential customers, it was at this point that he moved into other business areas,  becoming National Sales  and then Product Manager responsible for worldwide sales and marketing of HPLC consumables while still performing HPLC applications support.

His growing expertise in both practical and analytical HPLC methods and products, coupled with marketing and corporate skills saw him progress as European Sales and Product Manager at Kratos Analytical Inc. 

Trevor, born and raised in Yorkshire, then made the move to the USA in 1982 where he initiated the start-up of the US subsidiary of Phase Sep Ltd – Norwalk, CT based Phase Separations Inc. with full responsibility for chromatography consumables product sales and marketing, P & L, personnel management, accounting and financial reporting. 

From 1995 Trevor ran his own business for 5 years before returning to the chromatography community in 2002. He has mainly acted as a Chromatography Consultant ever since and returned to his mother country and county in 2010.

Trevor gained a Higher National Certificate in Chemistry at Leeds Polytechnic and was a Graduate of the Royal Society of Chemistry at Huddersfield University. In 1979 he was awarded the RSC Chemistry Prize for outstanding Achievement and Excellence for examination grades.  He has conducted numerous customer and distributor training meetings and presented papers and posters at major international conferences and meetings and written articles for leading academic and industry-based journals including Chromatography Today (Feb/March Issue 6.1).

Outside of work he enjoys DIY/home improvement projects, gardening, travel (warm weather holidays), an eclectic mix of music from classical to jazz and a passion for tech products and photography.
