Electronics Watch welcomes two new staff members

In May we gave a warm welcome to our two newest colleagues: Marisol Bernal, Affiliate Engagement Manager, and Simon Gray, IT Manager. Both are based in the UK.

Marisol has specialised knowledge in sustainability and public procurement, including environment, human rights, social value and procurement regulations and procedures. She previously worked as Responsible Procurement Lead at the London Universities Purchasing Consortium, where she developed and implemented the responsible procurement strategic plan. She assisted higher education, and other not-for-profit organisations in the arts, science, charity, and wider public sector by embedding responsible procurement within their sourcing processes.

Simon has a long history of working with IT systems and infrastructure, supporting corporate networks throughout Europe. He subsequently founded and managed IT support companies working with SMEs, helping organisations transition to the new reality of cloud and remote working. He has worked as a Cyber security tester for the UK CE and CE Plus schemes, auditing government suppliers, public sector bodies and private companies. Based in mid-Wales, he also volunteers with local community groups including the South Gwynedd Foodbank and Community Hub, assisting with their processes and volunteer training.
