Celebrating the Internal Promotion of Our New General Manager

QED Stand: 5/L125

Within his new role, Eddie will oversee how we can improve the everyday running of the business and help grow the QED brand to where we want to be.

We’re incredibly excited about what the future holds – 2023 is going to be the best year yet!

We always want you to get to know the people behind QED, so we asked Eddie some questions to give you a little insight.

When Did You Start Working at QED?

I joined QED 5 years ago, in January 2018. I can’t believe how fast it has gone! I’ve worked in the Technical department helping our staff and customers with any advice or support they need with our products, running the department for the last 3 years. I am now proud to be moving into my new role as General Manager. I will still be involved with the technical team.

What New Skills Have You Learnt Throughout Your Time at QED?

I have been in the industry for nearly 20 years, following in the footsteps of the family name, for those of you who know, you know! Having previously worked for manufacturers, coming to QED has introduced me to so much more. Throughout my time here, I have learned more about all our other products, not just the cameras. This includes everything from access control, batteries and cable, wireless links, x-rays, and Z and L brackets. Y… because every day is a learning day.

What is Your Greatest Achievement at QED?

This is always a tough question. It’s always good when you find a solution to a problem. My standout would be a complete overhaul of our internal network and IT system. Jobs like this are never easy and we faced many challenges along the way, but we got there in the end.

What Are You Most Proud of?

100% the team. We’re very lucky to have an amazing set of people working here and it’s an absolute pleasure to work with them every day. It definitely feels like we’re all part of one big family.

A Fun Fact You May Not Know About Eddie…

He was a world-class superstar DJ, touring arenas around the country (he’s now retired to focus on this new role.)

Matt Philp, Managing Director, said:

“I have enjoyed working with Eddie for over 5 years now, he was made for this role. The combination of his work ethic, skills, and attitude made him the obvious choice.  His calm demeanour and ability to look at the bigger picture, whilst ensuring we achieve our goals will allow us to move forward freeing me up to concentrate on other elements of the business with confidence.”
