Head judge and ECA Head of Technical Steve Martin commented: “Many congratulations to the four remaining contenders, who have deservedly been shortlisted for the final by the Power Players judges.
“I urge the entire industry to vote for their preferred entry, by visiting the Power Players website to watch the four videos and make your selection.”
An independent judging panel lead by the ECA’s Steve Martin determined the shortlisted entries. The three other Power Players judges were: Tessa Ogle (CEO, Electrical Industries Charity), Russell Beattie (Chief Executive, FETA), and Margaret Fitzsimons (Managing Director, EDA).
The two winners will be announced on Wednesday 6 September during the Electrical Design & Install (ED&I) Expo. There are a range of top-quality prizes and recognition on offer, including a business and networking trip to the USA, lunch with incoming chair of construction firm Laing O’Rourke Sir John Parker, and an opportunity to take part in an Electrical Industries Charity initiative.
Power Players was run by the ECA between April and July this year, in collaboration with a range of industry partners and supporters. The initiative aims to identify some of the leading young people across the engineering and electrotechnical industry.
