Meet Gerry, sean and Bill

Who we work with is everything to us. At Irish Engineering Services we want to inspire everyone to see how important the safety of their staff, themselves and anyone around them is.  Our leadership team is focused on making sure everyone gets home safe, that works for us and it works for our partners too.

Our management group is made up of Sean Thompson, Territory Manager, and Gerry Doran and Bill Martin, Unit  leaders, three of the industry’s most skilled and experienced people.  Together, their hands on approach and customer focus has helped guarantee the ongoing success of our business and will continue to do so well into the future.


“I’ve been working for the Group since 1991 and cut my teeth as a lifting equipment surveyor in Scotland’s oil rig yards near Inverness.  A move back to Ireland followed in 1997 and I began leading the Irish inspection team in 2000.  I’ve been the Territory Manager for the whole of Ireland and Isle of Man since 2014 and I am also a Statutory Director of Irish Engineering Services.  A native of Belfast, I have lived in Athenry, Co Galway for more than 20 years and now call it home.”


“Having worked in heavy industry and as a training school instructor, I came to British Engine back in 1999 and worked as an Electrical/LEV surveyor covering all of Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man and Donegal.  Each year, I would also spend several months completing electrical inspections in Hazardous Areas for BP and Shell and travelled wherever this skill was required.  In 2009, I became the Unit Leader for the Northern Ireland team and manage the daily activities of 20+ Engineer Surveyors in five different specialist disciplines.  In recent years, I have also combined this with the management of a portfolio of Key Accounts locally including Northern Ireland Electricity, Caterpillar and Belfast City Council.  Put simply, my role is to ensure that our customers always get the very best from our Group at all times.  Based in Glengormley, near Belfast, I am located centrally to our main clients, brokers and our team of Engineers Surveyors and I am able to ensure that we respond very quickly and do just that.”


“I began my career as a Marine Engineer working on roll on roll off ferries, very large and ultra large crude oil tankers before spending time in the offshore industry in the North Sea. I joined the group in 2006 as a Pressure Engineer Surveyor. I went on to examine pressure equipment, lifting equipment and carry out pressure consultancy work all over Munster. In 2014 I became the Unit Leader for the ROI team and currently lead, motivate and develop a team of 19 Engineer Surveyors. I’m the Key Account Manager for two of our larger clients Dairygold and Glanbia. I live just outside of Mallow in North Cork.”
