Software Sales Director - Europe
I joined GE Energy as part of an acquisition at the end of 2000 and since that date I have held a number of different sales management roles but all mainly focusing on the Energy and in particular the Transmission & Distribution market segment.
Initially I was responsible for the Smallworld Asset Management (GIS) product suite from December 1996 covering Scotland and the North of England until GE Energy acquired the company, whereby I shortly thereafter transitioned to establish the sales team for UK/Irl for SCADA/DMS.
In 2004 I was promoted to lead the sales team responsible for SCADA/DMS/EMS/OMS for the whole of Europe, with a personal target to establish the SCADA/DMS/OMS product suite in Russia.
This we did successfully by working with 3rd party companies and latterly by establishing a direct presence in the country which continues to expand on that early success.
In July 2009 I was promoted to Smart Grid/Smart Meters Team Leader for Western Europe in order to provide leadership and focus for this key growth marketplace however, in parallel I was also acting as Western Europe T&D Sales Director responsible for the full range of T&D products and services (incl Smart Grid). This I continued to do until 2011 when Energy Services re-structured into smaller territories to provide better focus in growth markets which changed my focus to the Northern Sub Region.
As of Jan 2012, due to further GE Energy Services re-organisation I moved to Digital Energy as Sales Director for Software Solutions and Services covering Western Europe
Prior to joining GE, I spent 10 years with Xerox Engineering in the UK focusing on sales of Document management and CAD solutions for major industries
