Chair of Governors:

28Paul Charman – Chair of Governors, Delphi Diesel Systems

As the Technical Centre Manager, I am responsible for the day to day running of all of the test facilities and building services needed by the Engineers and Technicians to develop world class solutions for our customers.  I also have the responsibility for looking after the other functions, HR and Finance to make the UTC run effectively.

I became involved with Medway UTC in the preparation of the first application in 2012, mainly because I thought it was an exciting idea and a great opportunity for Delphi to become involved with the future engineers of the Medway towns.

Since we started the journey in mid-2013, I have been the Chair of the Governing Body which has been hugely rewarding in making the ambitions of the UTC a reality.
