Mackwell Proud to Announce New UK Sales Director

Tim McKernan, UK Sales Director, Mackwell

Emergency lighting, systems and solutions expert Mackwell is proud to begin 2023 with the high-profile appointment of a new UK Sales Director.

Tim McKernan joins Mackwell in a senior role as Sales Director, UK and Ireland, working closely with Commercial Director Andy Davies. Tim will be responsible for managing and overseeing UK sales operations, further developing existing and new client relationships, and ensuring sales growth targets are met.

Although Tim is a fresh face at Mackwell, he has worked in the lighting industry for over a decade and more broadly in the wider electronics industry for over 20 years prior. After achieving a First-Class degree in Electrical/Electronic engineering and post-graduate certificate in Marketing, Tim spent 21 years at Tyco Electronics (now TE Connectivity), reaching senior account and sales management roles during this time. His career in the lighting industry began at Harvard Engineering, where he first worked with Andy. Tim moved on to other companies within the lighting industry before accepting the role at Mackwell.

His years of experience in the electronics industry allow Tim to bring to the role an in-depth understanding and knowledge of market & technical trends, and in particular the future of emergency lighting systems, making him an asset to the company.

Tim commented, “I am delighted to have joined the team at Mackwell. Mackwell has a premium brand name, a new range of LiFePO4 Emergency luminaires and associated hardware coupled with robust wired and wireless reporting technology, backed by a market-leading warranty to help building designers and owners achieve safety-critical emergency lighting compliance requirements.”

“Mackwell’s brand strength and broad product range allows us to offer complete turnkey solutions which fulfil all Emergency lighting compliance requirements for a wide range of client applications.  I’m excited to be leading a team in seeking new specifications and installations in our industry which are making building occupants safer every day.”

Tim’s appointment marks a new chapter for Mackwell in 2023, expanding on senior roles and focusing on the circular economy message throughout their products and sales offerings.
