After deciding to change his career direction from IT, Chris Morton joined Quicklight in July 2006 to start training as an electrician. After passing all of his qualifications, he took on the role of Team Leader and later became the Area Manager for our North team. Now, Chris is the Operations Manager for Maintenance, mentoring team leaders and area managers across the country.
Not only is he a manager, he's a team player. Chris enjoys participating in and completing our charity challenges, having previously taken part in the Three Peaks Challenge in 2011, and the London to Brighton cycle ride in June 2013.
A family man with a wife and two sons, Chris is a lover of all sports. He particularly enjoys F1 and football as he is a lifelong Sunderland supporter and season ticket holder. He is also a qualified goalkeeping coach and trains his eldest son Ben for the local Under 12 club side and district teams.
"Quicklight has shown a huge amount of faith in me over the years coming from the IT profession with very limited electrical knowledge. After obtaining my electrical qualifications, it has allowed me to be successful as an engineer and to climb the leadership ladder to my current post of Operations Manager."
