Sean WelchCEO of the Agon Group
Sean has over 20 years’ experience in the EAS industry and founded one of the first independent EAS businesses in the UK in 1994. Over the next 10 years, the business grew to one of the most successful in the UK and as a result was the subject of a multi-million pound acquisition by a company listed on The London Stock Exchange.
In 2008, Sean founded a new EAS company, based in the UK and operating throughout Europe. When the opportunity arose to acquire Agon Systems in Switzerland, Sean set about merging the two businesses and totally re-branded the company in 2014 to mark this exciting new chapter in its history.

In the twenty years Simon worked with horses he had amazing opportunities to work in both Australasia and Asia, enabling him to both work and travel at the same time. In his first two years working for Veritek he worked in several departments, including Customer Service, Logistics, Parts and Account Management, to get a complete understanding of how the business operated.
Building on the knowledge that he had gained, from there Simon progressed into Team Leader and Management roles. During his 16 years with Veritek he managed many successful installation projects, embedded new business and account management processes and worked on gaining and maintaining ISO accreditations.
