He will focus on the agility and competitive edge of the business, ensuring that Peacock Engineering continues to respond swiftly to changing markets and delivers solutions even faster on a global scale.

He will also be joined by Helen Fearne, the new Head of PMO, while Dominic Bramley becomes Head of Pre-Sales Technical Services in a further move to increase the company’s IBM expertise.
