Promotion for John Harrington

John Harrington has been immersed in the business since aged ten when he helped out at the installation of the four-decker Makin instrument at Inverness Cathedral in 2004. Whilst  a student at school and college, John was involved in many of our installations around the country from which he gained much experience and proved to be much more than a very useful pair of hands. So fresh from college with an HND and other qualifications in electronics John formally joined the team in September 2014 as a Maintenance Engineer. In July 2015 he became a Technician Member of The Institution of Engineering and Technology with the designatory letters TMIET being awarded.

John is an accomplished Euphonium player, but to date has yet to graduate to the organ. In his spare time John is a scout leader having obtained his Queen’s Scout Award and Duke of Edinburgh’s Gold Award whilst he was still a teenager. He is enjoying planning the advanced electronics for the family model railway. His main hobby though is building Brisca F1 stockcars which are raced around short-oval tracks around the country.

In recognition of his immense knowledge, practical skills and exemplary customer care, as demonstrated by so many verbal and written testimonials, he was promoted in February 2024 to Maintenance Manager.

MD and exceedingly proud father Dr Keith Harrington commented “I have always taken great care that John found his own way in the business and was not given any special treatment by Corbie or myself.” He added, this promotion is well deserved and will allow him to develop his management skills as we expand the company.”
