Steve will be focusing on the design, delivery and approval for works for the installations.

Darren said, “Having been with Ecl-ips for 14 years, we are so pleased that he has continued to progress during this time. We are recognising Steve’s knowledge, loyalty to the company and his amazing appetite to learn and provide our customer base with the best solution for their needs.  Steve has a great technical brain and a vast knowledge on the systems that we provide to our customers, he will also be testing new and current products that best suit our portfolio.

Steve has always been technically minded and enjoys tinkering with gadgets and finding out how stuff works. He enjoys testing new products and software to ensure they will meet the needs of our customers, while his experience with all our systems means he can quickly get on top of upgrades and changes. He is also keen to learn and train on the job, including adding intruder alarm systems to his wealth of knowledge in recent years. 

Commenting on his new position Steve said: “I am very pleased with my new role and will do all I can to ensure I support the company moving forward. Here’s to the next 14 Years!”

Steve, who started out working in kitchens for a few years, soon joined Ecl-ips to pursue a technical-focused career.  He has worked his way up through the ranks over the years. As a project, and then as Senior Engineer, he enjoyed configuring, installing and providing solutions on customers sites, making sure each install was completed to the highest standard giving the end customer all the usability they could ask for. Steve has also supported clients remotely and directly on site to ensure solutions kept on working as they should.

Having become a father in 2021 Steve, who lives in Redditch, likes spending time with his family and he also likes to cook Caribbean and Mexican food.
