New Director of Operations Wayne Campbell is bringing his vast knowledge of customer service, leadership and change management to Advance Technology, Scarborough, Maine. Campbell is trained and versed in a variety of systems and processes focusing on superior customer service, including Toyota’s ‘Lean’ Tools/Methods and SMART goals and key company performance indicators.
Most recently Campbell was the Customer Support Group Manager for the billion dollar IDEXX Laboratories in Westbrook, Maine, where he managed a team of nearly 100 customer-facing professionals performing onsite software/hardware installation, onboarding, training and support. He holds an MBA in Leadership (honors) and is also an Eagle Scout, the highest achievement of the Boy Scouts of America.

Campbell’s entire career has been in the service and customer facing side of business. “There’s a good connection with what Advance Technology wants to continue to accomplish and my experience. I’m picking up the technology side of the business quickly with the help of our fantastic team members.”
