Russell Mawhinney joins Develop’s York-based team

   07 June 2023         News

Introducing Russell Mawhinney, the latest addition to Stuart Gilby’s team in York. With an extensive background spanning nearly two decades across various trade industries, Russell has honed his skills as an electrician, specializing in the commercial, industrial, and domestic sectors. His expertise ranges from rewiring centuries-old buildings to constructing state-of-the-art office complexes and everything in between.

Russell’s role as Site Technician will involve providing support to trainers and staff at Develop’s sites in York.

“At Develop I have been greeted with smiles and a warm family atmosphere; it’s probably one of the most relaxed places I’ve ever worked!” explains Russell.

“I have faced many challenges in my personal and professional life over the years but I deal with it, learn from it and then move on. Once I have dealt with it, it is no longer a challenge so I don’t look back and see challenges, I see problems I fixed! This attitude has served me well in my career so far and I look forward to helping the team at Develop overcome some of their challenges too.”

Outside of work, Russell leads a fulfilling life as a married individual with children. He embraces an active lifestyle, finding joy in activities such as mountain walking, cycling, and engaging in sports with his friends.

Welcome to the team Russell!
