Meet Mark Osborne, our new UK/EU Commercial Director! With 20+ years’ experience in the utilities and technology. Mark has a unique blend of understanding how technology can be proactively applied within the business environment to realize beneficial outcomes for customers.

Get to know him a little better by reading his Q&A below. 

Tell us a bit about your background. 

Mark: I grew up in Southwest (Cornwall and Devon), where I initially worked for a regional Electricity Utility spending several years working with technology teams and business users within a Solutions Delivery team. I then relocated to the US and worked within a few tech companies, including Trimble, delivering many successful large scale technology solutions for customers across the Globe. After 5 years in the U.S. my wife and I returned to the Southwest to be reunited with friends and family again and came across this great opportunity to join the VAPAR. 

After all your travels, why VAPAR?

Mark: During my career I have been heavily involved in the Water and Wastewater businesses. Water is one of the planets most valuable resources and we must find ways to preserve this to ensure we pass the stewardship to future generations. I am passionate to ensure we provide future generations with a stable and eco-friendly environment for many generations to come. Whilst living and visiting many places across the globe it can focus the attention on the importance of water to our global community. We need to ensure infrastructure can maintain and support the sustainability of the future. VAPAR provides a unique solution that underpins and supports this vision.  

What are your interests outside of work? 

Mark:  I love nothing more than spending time with my wife, our children, and our friends. Living in the Southwest part of the United Kingdom is a beautiful location with many outdoor activities, so I like to get out and about – when it’s not raining. I also like to Ski, get out on the mountain bike, and play golf –even though I am not very good at it!! 

Are you a coffee or tea person?

Mark:  Coffee in the morning, tea in the afternoon and maybe a cheeky beer in the evening!
