Q: What attracted you to working in the building controls industry?

A: Building Controls is a completely new industry for me and, coming from a job role where I worked across a range of different clients in a range of different industries, I’ve always relished the opportunity to throw myself in and learn the ins and outs of a new market. With Sontay, I get to focus purely on one.

Q: What advice would you give to someone starting out in the industry?

A: In other words: “what advice would I give to myself?”! I think it’s the same when you’re starting out at any new industry – don’t be afraid to ask questions, and fully immerse yourself in every opportunity you get to learn about it. 

Q: Who has been the biggest influence in your career?

A: I’d say my Grandad – he’s a proper inspiration for me. Didn’t come from much, but worked hard his whole life, running a successful construction company. Even now he’s retired he’s always working hard whether it be renovating or fixing things around the house!

  • Kanye West
  • Amy Winehouse
  • Steve Jobs
  • Khufu
  • Julius Caeser

Q: What is your favourite book?

A: Fingerprints of The Gods by Graham Hancock – all about ancient civilisations and how mainstream history has got it wrong. I’m a proper nerd for ancient Egypt!!
