Mangement team augmented to support sales

Gresham Power Electronics has appointed Gareth Owen to the position of European PSU Sales & Technical Manager for their Power Supply Business. Gareth returns to Gresham to fill this strategic appointment as the new senior contact for all of the OEM and Distribution business Gresham has throughout Europe

Jake Moir, Managing Director of Gresham commented; “We are pleased to welcome Gareth back to Gresham and he will quickly make a positive impact on our business as he already has a thorough knowledge of our products and their capabilities and good relationships with our existing customers. He will spend a great deal of his time travelling throughout Europe supporting our growing number of OEM customers and ensuring our Distributors have all the information and back-up they need to generate new design projects.”

This new appointment acknowledges Gresham’s understanding of how important it is to spend time face to face with both customers and distributors. Moir continued, “so much information is now available to our customers from an ever increasing range of sources that it actually seems to be getting harder to find the most appropriate solution to any need. We feel we should get back to basics and spend time with all of our customers to not only understand their immediate needs but to ensure any Gresham solution can add value to their whole product strategy.”
Gareth brings a wealth of experience of the power conversion industry having spent over 12 years with Sanken Power Systems, where he was Technical Applications and Power Supply Design Divisional Manager. During this time he spent 2½ in Japan seeing best practice design and manufacturing in operation and also gained a working knowledge of Japanese.

Gresham is able to supply standard products from their very wide range of high power density, high reliability compactPCI products, OEM power supplies, hot-swap power shelves and products for telecoms, medical, industrial and commercial applications as well as static frequency converters, DC UPS, distributed power systems and DC:AC inverters for Naval defence systems.

Having a direct presence in Europe will not only increase awareness of these standard products but more importantly enable Gresham to develop their very successful custom design services for OEM’s.
