Meet our new Project Manager of Electrical

19 February 2018

Meet our new Project Manager of Electrical - Ross McGregor. Ross brings fresh skills to Switched On as the company’s first Project Manager of electrical.

With Switched On growing as a business, bringing in someone who was not only a talented electrician but also a leader in their field, was an important step; and Ross is just that.

Ross received the best small business award at the National Master Electricians Excellence Awards 2017/18, and was a three-time finalist at the same awards.

He founded his own electrical business, McGregor Electrical Ltd, in 2010, and believes the skills he learnt within his own business will be beneficial to Switched On. Strengths such as systems and processes, quality of workmanship and methodical procedures, working to a budget and communicating directly with clients and industry peers.

He began in the industry in 1999 as an apprentice electrician, with his career later taking him to Queenstown where he project managed the electrical installation for two major construction projects and numerous architectural homes.

As a talented electrician, Ross has worked internationally in his field, namely Canada, Scotland and Ireland. Whilst working abroad he was introduced to home automation.

Ross’s care, attention to detail, passion and professional client interaction sets him apart and he’s looking forward to accomplishing goals with Chris Hughes and his award-winning Switched On team. Ross is excited to be working with a forward-thinking company and he’s looking forward to pulling in some more awards for Switched On.

Switched On is constantly growing and so we're continually looking for talented professionals to join our business. If you're interested in a career with Switched On, then check out our careers page for the latest news.
