Location: Vancouver, Canada
Year you joined Hexagon: 2010
Nev Judd is helping Hexagon’s Mining division tell meaningful stories about mining technology and how they are advancing the industry with safety and innovation in mind. An avid sports fan based in Vancouver, Canada, Nev was a career journalist for 25 years before joining Hexagon nearly a decade ago. He has brought his “jack-of-all-trades” journalistic approach to his current role as Communications Director by developing content that has a mainstream approach without sacrificing important technical detail.

“Hexagon has allowed me to find talents and qualities in myself that I didn't even know I had,” Judd said. “I think that is what I appreciate most about what I am doing now — I have become more versatile as a writer in this job than I ever would've been if I had just stayed in journalism.”Hexagon has allowed me to find talents and qualities in myself that I didn't even know I had.
