Alan Ashmore

"I started my apprenticeship in 1976 with N G Bailey in Leeds to become an approved Electrician working in the Commercial and Industrial sector. Looking to specialise in the HVCA industry I joined Satchwell Controls 8 years later as a Commisioning Engineer.

My career at Satchwell took me into Sales, Management and Energy Control, managing their organisations in Scandinavia, Europe and the Middle East.

Fifteen years later I joined Siemens Building Technologies and became their National Energy Manager, developing energy solutions for ASDA, M&S, McLaren, Siemens and other Bluechip companies.

In 2009 I started Building Energy Solutions UK Ltd and later started working for BEC.

As a Yorkshireman, I believe 'Energy Efficiency is a way of life'."
