We’re delighted to announce the addition of two experienced managers to our commercial team to streamline the handling of largescale solar projects across the UK.

New Contracts and Commercial Manager Tom Ransley brings a wealth of experience from his time in the construction industry where he worked in project management and operations in highways and maintenance, on projects ranging from pothole repair to £multi-million road improvement schemes.

After a stint with Bombardier in Austria managing electrical systems supply for trams, Tom returned to the UK and gravitated to the South West for its balance of work/lifestyle opportunities.

His first task at SunGift is to support the implementation of our new IT system that will touch on all elements of project management, from initial enquiries through design, pricing, quotations, warehousing and accounting. Once this is in place, he will be concentrating on large commercial contracts, providing a link between the sales and design teams for operational and project management.

He’s joined by Dan Toone in another new role for SunGift – Commercial Operations and Maintenance Project Manager. Dan will be looking after commercial customers once a system has been installed, in an ongoing and reactive role overseeing routine maintenance and response to any issues.

After graduating in aerospace engineering Dan worked for Eaton’s aerospace division within its graduate programme, taking on a variety of roles including manufacturing manager, materials manager and senior supplier quality engineer.

Both Tom and Dan were keen to join a smaller company working with an ethical business model committed to not only providing high quality installations and first rate customer satisfaction, but also employee satisfaction.

SunGift founder Gabriel Wondrausch says “We’re delighted to welcome Tom and Dan to the commercial team as we take the next step in our solar journey.

“More and more businesses and organisations are waking up to the benefits of solar energy, not purely from a financial view but from a genuine interest in supporting the environment. Strengthening the team with these two critical appointments gives SunGift an extra edge for clients interested in largescale solar installations.”
