Joel Mitchelson Ph.D (Managing Director)

Joel Mitchelson Ph.D Managing Director

Joel joined to take over the Managing Director (CEO) role in 2017, and oversees all aspects of the company. Joel brings with him a wealth of business, research, and engineering experience. His career has encompassed areas as diverse as computer vision, climate science, augmented reality, and biomechanics. Joel also has a deep knowledge of 3D movement analysis and quite literally grew up with it – his father is none other than company founder and inventor of the original technology behind Codamotion, David Mitchelson. Codamotion thus remains a family business.

"It’s a great honour to be able to lead the company as we work with our customers and partners to evolve the movement analysis systems and applications of the future. Our vision is to maximise the use of movement analysis around the world, with the goal of enhancing lives. I have seen the markets and technology in this area throughout my life, and am convinced there has never been a more exciting and productive time to be working on this." – Joel Mitchelson
