John O’Neill, director of technical excellence at Certsure.

A well-known and much respected figure in the industry, Mr O’Neill has almost 50 years’ experience in the sector. He started his career as an apprentice at Vauxhall Motors in Luton before working as a maintenance supervisor for General Motors in Canada and the USA. He returned to the UK to set up his own electrical contracting business specialising in electrical work and integrated control systems.

He joined NICEIC in 2010 and has filled a number of technical positions including area engineer, customer relations engineer and more recently the technical helpline manager.

Mr O’Niell commented: “I am delighted to take up this role at such a highly regarded organisation in the industry. My time spent as an area engineer gave me a great insight into the challenges contractors face on a daily basis and the many different environments they work in. I look forward to helping them prepare for future opportunities in new markets whilst at the same time providing high quality, compliant installations.”

Mr O’Niell will continue to represent Certsure on the JPEL/64 committee, contributing to the BS 7671 wiring regulations, which provides guidance for electrical contractors.

Kevan Parker, managing director for Certsure said: “John is a well-known and respected individual within the sector. He brings an immense amount of knowledge and experience to the role, both through his time as a contractor and with NICEIC and ELECSA.”
