Boulting Technology, integration expert, has promoted former Strategic Projects Director, Robin Whitehead as its new Managing Director.
Having worked at the organisation since 2003, Whitehead has a clear understanding of the company’s capabilities and market sectors, and will lead a growing team to further develop Boulting Technology as a market leader in the UK for the delivery of low voltage (LV) panels, control systems, industrial networks and pump system optimisation.
Whitehead began his career with East Midlands Electricity Board within their electrical contracting division, progressing into various project delivery roles for the company’s data communications and networking solution department.
He then moved to Siemens Network Services in the role of technical project manager for a global upgrade programme to deliver complex wide and local networking integration projects into live operational environments across the globe. He returned to the UK in 2001 as operations manager with network systems integrator STS before taking up a short programme management role at Cisco, from where he joined the Process Control department of Boulting Group in January 2003 as technical project manager.
“Through providing a fully integrated offering to our clients, where our traditional competencies in systems integration, LV panels and industrial networks are further enhanced by our digital strategy and alliance partnerships, Boulting Technology is now better aligned to meet our clients' requirements and expectations," explained Whitehead.
He continued: “My career to date with Boulting has afforded me valuable insight into identifying what is required to enable a mature and established business such as Boulting Technology to grow and remain successful. Success requires the right people, a strong focus on long-term client satisfaction and excellent partner relationships. We employ great people and have solid foundations in place, and I intend to do everything I can to lead the company to build upon these to take Technology to new heights."
Whitehead, who graduated from Nottingham Trent University Business school with a PGDip Management Studies (DMS) and an executive MBA, replaces Ian Oliver as MD of Boulting Technology. Oliver led Technology for 3 years, following 16 years previously running the Process Control department and has joined the main Boulting executive board as a non-executive director.
