Jim Westwood

Jim Westwood, the technical mastermind behind many of Sinclair's products and the company's chief engineer, joined the firm in September 1963 and stayed with it for over 20 years. The two men shared a connection even before they met: Westwood had previously worked at an electronics store in London which was owned by Bernard Babani, Sinclair's publisher. This gave Westwood a good degree of familiarity with Sinclair's designs, which prompted him to join Sinclair's fledgling company, Sinclair Radionics. Westwood subsequently had a hand in most of the company's products, including the calculators, audio equipment, computers and flat-screen TV.
