With a career spanning an impressive 60 years, electrical industry legend, Tony Cable, has amassed a wealth of experience and knowledge during his rise from apprentice at the age of 15, to his most recent role as senior marketing and events engineer with the NICEIC.
Although officially retired from his full time role, Tony will not be disappearing completely from the electrical industry scene, and Scolmore is delighted to announce that he will be taking up a consultancy role with the business.
Comments Marie Parry, Scolmore Group marketing director: “I have been fortunate to have known and worked with Tony for the last 11 years through our collaborative involvement in various NIECEC initiatives including tech talks, ELEX shows, and of course the electrical apprentice of the year competition. Having worked in both the domestic and commercial sectors, before going on to own his own electrical contracting business, Tony has covered all facets of the electrical industry and, with seven years spent on NICEIC’s Technical Helpline, there is little that he doesn’t know about the sector.
“As a business we are very excited to have the opportunity to harness his expertise and skills as we continue to develop our product ranges and grow the Scolmore Group of companies as a whole.”
Commenting on his new role with Scolmore, Tony said: “In the years I have known Scolmore and the brands it represents, I have seen the company grow rapidly and increase its market share considerably, with new and improved products and systems that ensure they and their customers stay ahead in this fast-paced sector. They are definitely a company with a bright future. When the opportunity to join the team came about, it was a no brainer from me. I am excited to bring my experience to the table and work with their very talented team of designers and technical engineers to help develop the next raft of new products.”
