I joined Centiel UK in 2019 as an Operations Manager, I have over a decade of experience in the UPS and Generator industry. My career began in 2008 at Benning UK where I completed his apprenticeship in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. During my time at Benning, I worked in a wide range of functions within the Engineering and Projects departments, carrying out roles such as Product Engineer, Sales Engineer and Project Manager.
In 2016 I joined AVK-SEG (UK) Ltd as a Technical Engineer responsible for design of turnkey UPS and Generator projects. I acted as Technical Lead on multiple high-value UPS and Generator projects, including tier 4 European Data Centre where over 40MW of UPS and Generator systems were successfully deployed. My experience in both design and project management enables me to deliver technical projects of the highest quality.
