The wide ranging expertise of Finch’s consulting services team continues to develop following the appointment of experienced electronics and controls engineer, Michael Campbell as a senior consultant.
Michael holds a BEng (Hons) in Industrial Electronics and Control and a City & Guilds in Machinery Safety. He began his career as a multi skilled engineering apprentice at Jaguar Landrover in 2006 at the Halewood Operations plant in Liverpool, and over the last 14 years, has progressed into senior control engineer and safety compliance roles leading teams in the UK and India.
His first controls engineer’s position at JLR was within the Powertrain Manufacturing Department, a newly created department formed to enable JLR to produce its own engines for the first time in over 20 years. This involved developing specifications for machinery as well as reviewing the build of equipment from design through factory acceptance testing to production trial runs. Checking the safety and suitability of a wide range of equipment covering machining, assembly and test machinery was also part of the remit.
At Finch Consulting, Michael will work with clients in sectors involved in the manufacturing, engineering, leisure and entertainment industries to help them identify and understand problems in order to deliver solutions that will improve their management of engineering risk.
Commenting on his appointment, Michael said, “When I was researching my next career move, the word ‘community’ was continually used in relation to Finch. Having met the team and realised how passionate they all are about delivering engineering excellence, I was immediately excited about the prospect of joining a team of experts that are always eager to pool their wide ranging talent and expertise in order to provide a quality service to customers.”
In his spare time, Michael has a keen interest in aviation history, and learned to fly a glider before he could drive a car.
