Head of Projects and Services for UK and Ireland.
Clive Partridge started his working career in 1974 as a Radio Officer in the Merchant Navy the training for this role involved the operation and repair of marine radio equipment. Family commitments saw Clive leaving the merchant Navy in 1979 and moving to Germany where he worked for the American military as a radar maintenance specialist and learnt German as a by product. Having German language skills enabled him to move from there to Siemens in Karlsruhe as a trainer and then as a project manager where Siemens was delivering a large project for a Middle Eastern government ministry. On the completion of this 11 year project Clive and his family moved back to the UK in 1994 where he joined Rittal Limited as a Product Manager for Electronic and Datacomms enclosure products. During the late 90’s it became apparent that with the introduction of more active products such as water cooled rack products and environmental monitoring his background and skill set was ideal for the new role of Technical sales support for colleagues and customers alike.
