What is your role at Northern Switchgear?

Production Manager

What is your career background and how did you come to work at NSG?

I started my career in 1995 with a 3-year engineering apprenticeship in the Merchant Navy. After qualifying in 1998, I served as Second Engineering Officer on tankship vessels until 2002 when I chose a different career path due to starting a family.

I worked as a Maintenance Engineer through the next 8 years in various sectors including high speed production, automotive, building, electrical and pharmaceutical. I moved into a heavy engineering environment supplying specialist equipment to the offshore oil & gas industry in 2010 as a Production Engineer.

I worked as a Production Manager in the oil and gas industry and within a small hydraulic business until I took up the role of Production Manager at Northern Switchgear.

What’s in store for Northern Switchgear over the next 12 months?

I’m looking forward to being involved in the continued growth of the company over the next year with some exciting projects on the horizon.

Where would you most like to travel to and why?

I’d love to do a road trip around America to experience the people, history and cultures.
