“Learn from your mistakes and always look to improve yourself.”

I joined GEA Refrigeration UK Ltd as a Graduate Sales Engineer in the product sales department and moved into the contracting business within GEA in 2014 as a Design Engineer. I was promoted to the role of Design Team Leader in 2017. Outside of work, I’m a keen follower of Formula 1 and Moto GP. I also enjoy Go Karting with friends.

Achievements

  • Making the career move from sales to design was one of the best decisions I’ve made as it really has given me the opportunity to grow as a person.
  • Being promoted to Design Team Leader gave me added responsibility within the company that I really enjoy.
  • Over the last four years as Design Engineer/Team Leader I have designed quite a few large contracts and the one that I’m most proud of is the project I completed for a leading supermarket where I designed the largest freezer store in the UK.

Aspirations

I hope to develop my career in management to a senior level within the business.
