Hello. My name is Xavier Boira and I work as regional sales manager for Quantum Design Iberia. I have a degree in Electronical Engineering which I obtained from the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya.
For several years I worked at metrology and quality labs in the automotive industry. About 12 years ago, I moved to sales, where I found my real professional dedication.
My office is in the old town Terrassa, around 30 km from Barcelona. Terrassa is also home to the second biggest university campus outside of Barcelona.
As part of the Quantum Design group, I serve the Iberian Peninsula.
My responsibilities include the following product groups:
- Systems to characterize mechanical, optical and thermal properties
- Optical cryostats with multiple open windows
- A wide range of optical components, optomechanics and optical filters
- Imaging systems
- Photolithography systems
- High-precision interferometers to control and check roughness and optical surfaces
- Optical tweezers
Whenever possible, I spend my free time first of all with my family – we have an eight year old daughter – and then I enjoy very much reading and listening to music. In addition, I’m a real fan of automotive and motorcycle sports and I try to follow these events to keep me updated.
