Mark is the Chief Spark, more commonly known as the Managing Director. He has a long background in the education industry from an IT, building and energy perspective. Mark started Bright Spark in 2011 and its focus shifted solely to energy services in 2013.
Mark Says "Bright Spark gives us the opportunity to make a difference - we are a company that is focused on ensuring that we deliver best value for customers and are motivated by doing a good job over profit."

Grant heads up Projects and Operations for Bright Spark and is also the resident Solar PV expert. He has been working in the Energy Industry for over 20 years and has been involved in the installation of hundreds of PV systems as well as lighting and heating projects.
" We work without the normal limitations of most companies - the focus is always doing a good job for our customers over and above profit. Our growing teams work to the principle that 'Good is not Good enough, only Excellent will do'" says Grant.
Outside of work Grant spends a lot of time charity fundraising, spending time outdoors (normally in a water related activity) and as he lives in "Torbados" this normally involves boats of some description.
