Expansion of the European Casper team
Casper is excited to announce that we have expanded the Casper team in both France and the Netherlands!

We are very excited to welcome Francis Bourganel as Global acoustics and noise specialist at Casper BV.

In the past 10 years, he has held the position of Product Manager for construction sites noise and vibration monitoring solutions, acoustic prediction software, acoustic cameras, and custom software solutions.
Francis likes to consider himself as a “passeur”, a French word designating people that translate ideas and concepts between technical and non-technical persons. My role at Casper is a new and a challenging adventure with a powerful successful international team.
Francis is living with his family in the area of Lyon (France) and is a happy father of 3 girls. He practices music with friends and enjoys running in the surrounding hills.
