I was interested to find your very impressive Kilmarnock Academy website by accident and wish to register as a former pupil:
Name: Dr Gordon F Mutch
Kilmarnock Academy: 1957-1963
Profile: see below
"I left Kilmarnock Academy shortly after taking the Highers in my 6th Year and went to Norway to cut down trees for a spell before going to College. I loved the outdoor life but decided against Forestry as a career.
After graduating from Paisley Tech. (HND in Mech/Prod Eng) in 1967 and UMIST (M.Sc.) in 1970, I have been living mostly in Canada since 1971 although I also worked in the US and France for a period of six years.
Since graduating from McMaster University (Ph.D.) in Hamilton, Ontario in 1975 I have been working as a consulting engineer throughout the world and am still very active.
I am currently Vice President, Business Development, Engineering and Transportation for Bodycote Materials Testing Americas located in Mississauga, Ontario. I am beginning to think about retirement but have too much fun at work to actually do it.
Happily married for 34 years to Magda, who I met in Manchester while studying at UMIST , we have two grown up "kids", David (30) and Julie (26) and live in Oakville, Ontario. Magda who has a Maitrise es Lettres from the Sorbonne is currently Manager of Corporate Communications at Nestle in Toronto. While working (not coincidentally) for Nestle in Switzerland David recently got his Ph.D. from the University of Lausanne for a thesis on nutrigenomics and is moving to France to continue his post-Doctoral Fellowship at the Hotel Dieu in Paris. Julie is currently taking a post graduate course on Orthotics and Prosthetics at Sunnyside Hospital in Toronto and will commence her Orthotics internship in Calgary, Alberta, this summer.
Besides my family and my work, my passions in life are rugby, gardening, classical music (especially opera), good food and wine with a newly developed interest in cooking in preparation for my eventual retirement."
I look forward to keeping in touch with the "Old School" in the future via this website.
Sincerely Gordon Mutch
