Jimmy started his career in 1985 in the United Kingdom at the Nuclear Research Government Agency as Dimensional Calibration Engineer and then as Technical Manager, before being named Head of its UKAS Accredited Lab (0063).
When the company was transferred to a nuclear facility management company, he was promoted to General Manager for the calibration business units, comprising four laboratories based across the UK. In 1999 he was named Head of Customer Branches, which he set up for an international aerospace manufacturer. In 2009 his team was transferred to Trescal and he was appointed Trescal UK Program Manager for the customer’s 18 embedded sites comprising 150 people.
In 2011, Trescal’s biggest aerospace customer called on it to build an on-site calibration lab in Singapore. In addition to supporting the client in the field, Jimmy also set up Trescal’s first greenfield calibration lab in Singapore in 2015 and developed the customer’s portfolio. In 2017 Jimmy was naturally appointed Director for Asia, which is a highly strategic market for the group.
Jimmy’s aim today is to make Trescal the largest calibration service provider in Asia-Pacific. He appreciates working with the entrepreneurs who are joining the group through the acquisitions. He and his family are enjoying a unique and fulfilling expatriation experience on both a personal and professional level.
