Danny joined Mecserve as an Associate Director working as a Project Manager and Electrical Engineer. He has extensive experience, particularly with small, medium and large commercial and residential developments, as well as managing large teams of engineers. He is a great team player who shares his skills both within our own business, but also through mentoring with the IET.

When he was two years old Danny fell off a three-storey building. Not only did he survive, he didn't break a single bone! As an adult, he considers his greatest achievement to be surviving the Munich beer festival with Peter Kirk and a [tactfully] unnamed client. More wholesomely, he mentors for the IET.
