I began my career in the UPS industry in 1988 when Fiskas UK (now part of ) as Technical Services Manager, responsible for all post-sales activities including Field Service, Project Management and Services Sales. In 1966 I became the co-founder of the Research and Development team at Invertomatic SA in 1984 In 1993 I became one of the co-founder directors of Uninterruptible Power Supplies Ltd. (UPSL/Kohler Power), known for selling ABB/Newave manufactured UPS products in the UK under the PowerWAVE brand. In 2005 I led a management buy-out to then become the company’s Managing Director. In late 2008 Uninterruptible Power Supplies Ltd was sold to the US company, Kohler, and I spent until mid-2010 helping to integrate USPL into Kohler.

After leaving UPSL I joined the Swiss Uninterruptible Power Supply manufacturer, Newave as its CEO. In 2012 Newave was acquired by ABB and I played key roles in both the due diligence and integration stages of the acquisition. After leaving Newave/ABB, I took positions as the MD of Emerson Network Power (now Vertiv) and the UK MD of Benning Power Electronics. Since retiring from executive management late 2017, I have become a non-executive Chairman of Centiel SA’s UK subsidiary, Centiel UK Ltd. and have been appointed to the Centiel SA board.
