Darren Walker-Brown joins the team as Operations Manager and shares his aspirations for the future:
“Operational excellence is central to the success of project delivery at all levels. It’s a critical role in the Food and Drink Industry with the frequent demands of working and installing in live environments where co-ordination contractors defines the success of a project.
My 16 or so years working in building services installation and management are going to stand me in good stead for my new role. New challenges? Bring them on!
Having worked on high value, complex projects, I bring a wealth of experience and enthusiasm to the role and am looking forward to building on the successes that Penmann has already achieved with an established and technically excellent team.
In my previous role I operated in Project Management for a national MEP contractor. I am a CMI Chartered Manager and am lucky enough to have been awarded the BESA Alfred Manly Award 2016.
I am relationship driven and passionate about exceeding client’s expectations and supporting business growth.
My day-to-day role is focussed around managing the Operations side of the business, coordinating the project team. I intend to make best use of the in-house expertise of our design team, their 3D/2D drawing production and engineering capabilities, to support me in delivering the highest quality solutions for the most challenging of our client’s requirements.
Looking to the future I am confident that the experience I have gained from the construction sector will be invaluable and I will be applying my transferable skills to build further on the successes that the Penmann team has achieved over their long history in the industry.
I’m proud to support our business growth plans and to provide solutions for our current and future client base.
On a personal level I am Dad to 1, love my food and eating out and occasionally I’m found on the Yorkshire roads on 2 wheels.”
