Electrification means passion for cutting edge technologies. When there is passion there are always people. Meet our management team.
President and CEO
Passionate about the business and its growth. I now feel we are poised for greatness. We need skilled and experienced people, working collectively. We have a great team, massive opportunity, we now only need to execute on our goals.
Vice President, Treasurer and Chief Financial Officer
Paul graduated in Economics and trained as a U.K. Chartered Accountant in public practice, working at PwC both in the U.K. and in Portugal. Since leaving public practice he has spent more than 20 years in industry, mainly in U.S. owned multi-national manufacturing businesses in a variety of finance roles. Paul is responsible for financial reporting and control, risk management and financial strategy. When not working, Paul enjoys watching sport in general and football in particular (the round ball version) and spending time with his family.
Chief Technology Officer
Pete loves new technology and can often be found daydreaming about how the latest power semi’ or microcontroller can do the job better, smaller and smarter. In his spare time you will find him with his family, out on his bike, in the gym or learning karate.
Vice President of Global Sales
Mark has been with Sevcon since early 2011. He graduated as Electronic Engineer following an early career in the Air Force. He then quickly migrated to the commercial work and has worked for both small and large organisations in sales and marketing roles, in high tech sectors. With an MBA from Edinburgh University, Mark’s role is to provide sales and marketing leadership across the organisation.
Vice President of Quality
After 40 years in engineering delivering top quality and solutions, it’s in Richard’s DNA. Thankfully his impulsive and fun wife copes with and balances his 5S obsessions at home! Loving to spend time with his ever growing family, his me time involves walking, gardening and tending his Koi carp.
Vice President and Chief Information Officer
Darren relishes the challenge of managing the delivery of Sevcon’s global IT infrastructure alongside his team of dedicated professionals. He has a passion for data and process improvement. When not at work, Darren undertakes his other role of CHIO (Chief Home Improvement Officer), turning his hand to most tasks as long as there’s a new time saving gadget involved! He loves nothing better than relaxing with the family and dog, spending time outdoors and contemplating exercise!
Head of Development
Dave enjoys the absurdities of life – his passion for working on cutting edge vehicle technology only matched by his level of fondness for his dilapidated, aging car. Leisure time involves learning from his children about how the real world works - they regularly inform him that they know best.
Head of Research
With over 20 years’ experience in machines and drives, Howard is still passionate about the subject. He loves creative thinking and imaginative engineering solutions. Relaxation comes in the form of motorcycles and taekwondo, or a more leisurely stroll in the country.
Louise does all our global HR and is based in Gateshead. She is fanatically organised as well as being a human magpie with an obsession for all things shiny having spent her formative career in the jewellery industry. When not at work she spends her time doubling as a human climbing frame for her young family.
PA to President/CEO and CFO
Denise has had over 20 years’ experience as a PA and being asked ‘Can you get me that thing from a month ago’ and actually knowing what that ‘thing is’ will always be part of the norm for her. She enjoys interior design and is quite taken with knocking down the odd wall or two over a weekend. Watching Colombo, eating cake and sipping on a fruity cider is her guilty pleasure.
