18 February 2013

JWB portraitA new face has joined the TUMG team this year – Jonathan Woodbridge Buys is the company’s new Energy & Environment Technology Associate.  Jonathan’s role is to help clients increase their operational efficiency and reduce consumption of electricity, gas and water at source.

This service will further build upon TUMG’s long-standing success reducing utilities costs by securing the best tariffs and terms through individual and bulk tenders.  In short, TUMG can now sum up its complete service offering as ‘spend less and consume less’.

Jonathan strong track record applying for and accessing EECA grants for energy saving projects on behalf of organisations like Sky City and Manukau City Council will also offer clients a significant advantage, says Managing Director Richard Gardiner.

“Jonathan has a wealth of experience and has proved his worth many times over in previous roles.  We are delighted to welcome him to the team and look forward to introducing Jonathan to our clients over the coming months,” he said.

During a five year stint as Energy Manager at Sky City, Jonathan was responsible for projects which won two commendations from the 2010 EECA Energy Awards and commendations in the 2010 IES Lighting Awards.  Jonathan’s strategy also delivered significant utilities savings to Sky City between 2008 and 2012, and raised in excess of $1.6 million in EECA grant funding.  He secured capital investment of over $10 million over that period for sustainable renewal and energy saving projects.

Jonathan has twenty years’ experience in mechanical engineering with a particular focus on energy management and environmental engineering.  His extensive experience in small and medium scale projects and facilities management experience make him a valuable addition to the TUMG team.
