Promotions and Achievements Q1 2024

It’s been a busy few months here on the Pektron campus, so we thought we’d share a brief update.


We are delighted to celebrate the promotion of several colleagues within Engineering:

Kevin Allardyce & Chris Woolley – Senior PCB Design Engineers
Over the past few years Kevin & Chris have taken on the training and development of our PCB design capabilities. The Senior PCB Design Engineer role has been created to acknowledge these responsibilities and put a structure in for Engineer and Junior / Graduate PCB Design levels to help progress others into this aspect of design.

Gary Harrison – Junior Design Engineer
Gary has been taking on higher level responsibilities in recent times which includes the design and control of projects. He is the first Technician to progress all the way to electronics engineer level for over 20 years – a hugely impressive achievement.

Sigita Juknevica – Test Technician
Sigita has been working in the test laboratory for a few years but has recently taken on a lot of responsibility for helping get us ISO 17025 accreditation. This new role will enable her to now progress in experience in the Test Laboratory.

Congratulations to all, best of luck in your new roles.


Congratulations to Joe Clarke on obtaining ‘Engineering Technician’ member status with the Institute of Engineering and Technology. During the 6-month certification process, Joe was asked to record continuous learning and demonstrate how he meets the IET’s engineering principles and values.

Joe said, “I’m very proud to have achieved Engineering Technician Member of The IET (MTIET). It comes with an internationally recognised title which demonstrates my professionalism, skills, and knowledge in my role. I also believe I am the first person within Pektron to achieve technician member.”

Engineering Development Manager Michael Dalton said of Joe’s achievement “I’m really pleased that Joe took the time to gain recognition with the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), this proves to himself and shows to others that he has achieved a level of skill and competency that has been recognised and verified by the Engineering Council and the reward for his extra effort is that he can now be known as an Engineering Technician in an official capacity.”

The IET describes gaining Technician membership as a mark of excellence and recognition of skills and achievements. Well done Joe!

Congratulations to Lab Technicians Jo Cook and Junior Nleya, who both recently completed a Keysight User Fundamentals I course. The course is specifically for technicians responsible for developing test programs on the Keysight 3070 MuxBoard system. The course enables technicians to learn standard tooling and basic test development using Keysight tools. With this latest course completion, the lab now has Erfan, Jo, and Junior trained up to UF1 spec, with more training up to Fundamentals II already booked in. Thank you to our technicians for all their hard work!
