Neville’s career in the electrical industry began some 40 years ago in South Africa where he gained sound knowledge of electrical principles and process engineering with Companies such as Sasol, AECI, Natref, Newcastle Steel, and various Utility organizations. Neville transferred to Australia in 1983 to provide expertise overseeing projects including Snowy Mountains Hydro Electric Scheme, BHP, and Loy Yang A & B power stations. Between 1988 and 1994, Neville became involved in large projects for Woodside, Esso Australia and ACI Glass for Elsag Bailey in the capacity of Director, National Sales/Service and Business Development Executive. In 1994, Neville was approached by Merlin Gerin to establish an Australian subsidiary for their Power Protection Products and during the 10 years that followed held the position of Managing Director, Company Secretary, Public Officer, and Quality Manager. In 2002 Neville and Kathryn established Chase Power.
Prior to establishing Chase Power with Neville, Kathryn’s background was mostly sales oriented. Today Kathryn is responsible for the day to day administration of Chase Power with a key focus on customer service and liaison with our local and international partners. In addition, Kathryn undertakes the Project Management role for the Company’s contracts.
