NICEIC has announced the appointment of Paul Collins as its new Technical Director. Paul replaces John O’Neill, who retires at the end of March, having held the position since 2019.
“I want to congratulate Paul on his new appointment,” says Certsure Managing Director, Richard Orton. “Having been with the organisation for 13 years and successfully heading up the Technical Services Division for the past four, I have no doubt Paul will bring a wealth of knowledge, experience and enthusiasm to this important role.
“I would also like to thank John O’Neill for his outstanding contribution to the business and for being the trusted custodian of our core value – technical integrity – for the past four years.”
Having started his career as an electrical apprentice in 1990, Paul moved on to become a NICEIC Qualified Supervisor, gaining vast experience in the electrotechnical, gas, plumbing, heating, and renewable sectors before joining NICEIC in 2009.
Since this time Paul has held a number of positions within NICEIC including Helpline Engineer, Head of Consulting, Head of NICEIC, Head of Operations and most recently Head of Technical Services.
In his new role as Technical Director, Paul will continue to represent NICEIC on various committees and working groups.
“I am delighted to take on this new role” says Paul, “I am passionate about our industry, and I am committed to pushing it forward, raising standards, and ensuring technical integrity remains at the heart of everything we do.
“There truly has never been a more exciting time to be involved in our industry and I am excited to be part of the team who will continue to develop and cement NICEIC’s leading role within it.”
