Leading the Expansion of Ford Electrical
Alex Burrell has been appointed as Operations Manager at Ford Electrical Ltd (FEL) to lead a planned expansion of the company. Ford Electrical is the preferred contractor for many schools and colleges locally and is a trusted sub-contractor for national building firms. Fords now wants to ensure that hard won trust, reliability and reputation is available to more organisations and companies in the region.
As Fords is a family run business, values and quality of service are paramount, so Heming Group has taken some time finding and appointing Alex Burrell. Alex has the perfect mix of courteous and professional customer facing skills, with a broad and deep range of technical skills. Most of all he cares about getting it right. Through his extensive team managing skills, he ensures that engineers who carry out the work have the same values: get it right, on time and aim to exceed expectations.
The Heming Group chose Alex Burrell to lead Fords in this next exciting chapter because of this unique combination of people and commercial skills together with his technical experience. Alex ticks all the boxes for electrical qualifications, including, ECS Gold Card, City & Guilds 18th Edition, Level 3 Initial and Periodic Inspecting and Testing, a raft of NVQ’s in Electrotechnical Systems and Equipment, Technology and Installation. Currently Alex is working towards an HNC in Electrical Engineering and is aiming to complete the CITB SMSTS. In short, Alex not only has the qualifications but also the pride in being ‘hands-on ready’ he says, to ensure he always has appreciation of what he is asking his team to carry out in practice.
Recent practical experience is another reason Alex is the right person to lead Ford to the next level. Experience working for the likes of Amazon, The Londoner Hotel - Leicester Square, Mercedes Benz Ascot, NHS Swindon, and the MOD will enable the potential for Fords expansion to be fully realised.
"I am delighted to bring my skills to such a long-established and innovative company. I’m looking forward to building off its solid foundations and growing the business with new and exciting electrical projects." Said Alex.
Alex’s enthusiasm and can-do attitude coupled with his enthusiastic and personable manner, enables not only his team to be highly motivated, but customers to get a refreshingly genuine high level of service with focus on always providing value and quality. Many years of practical experience and a natural technical ability means he can bring the best and often the most advanced solution. Alex has a passion for applying technology and solutions to save energy and reduce costs - ultimately helping to protect the environment.
Added Peter Heming, MD, Heming Group,
"We welcome Alex to the management team and look forward to seeing how his experience and enthusiasm will maximise Ford’s potential, whilst upholding the strong values of the Heming Group."
