Louis McGarry

Sales and Marketing Director, Centiel UK Ltd

 

My experience in the Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) industry spans over a decade, working for brands such as Uninterruptible Power Supplies Ltd (UPSL/Kohler Power), Schneider and Emerson Network Power (Vertiv). My extensive knowledge of products, including UPS Systems and Generators, enables me to successfully design and deliver solutions for the Critical Power Market.

I have worked in various industries including Banking, Data Centres, Healthcare, Utilities and Government. I joined the Centiel team early in 2018 as Sales Manager to assist in delivering Centiel’s industry-leading technology to the UK market and building the Centiel brand as the most innovative UPS manufacturer.

I was appointed as Sales and Marketing Director in January 2020 in recognition of my significant contribution to the companies success. I now has overall responsibility for the continued expansion of Centiel’s hardware and service sales in the UK.
