Mark Blatchly

Sector: Hospitality
Time with acl: 10 years

Mark is a Division Manager at ACL and has been with the company for 10 years. 


After leaving school Mark embarked on his journey as an electrical apprentice working with another company within our industry. After completing his apprenticeship Mark decided it was time for a change.  

He worked independently as a sub-contractor before joining ACL in 2010. Mark initially joined ACL as a Installation engineer, after 4 years he was promoted to Senior engineer, following this, Contracts Manager and now Division Manager

Life as a division manager

With such a varied role, no two days are generally the same. An average week would usually see Mark in the office for three days, completing quotations, issuing system designs and ensuring that his support team have everything they need to help with any reactive client requests. The other two days are usually spent onsite either conducting site surveys, reviewing ongoing or recently completed works, attending site meetings or just generally catching up with clients.

(at ACL) there is a family atmosphere and one where everyone is able to be themselves. Whilst we are a growing company and there are sometimes challenges associated to it, during times when the chips are down and additional support is required, there is always a queue of people willing to assist.

The best part of the job

Another aspect of Marks role which although can sometimes be challenging, but an aspect he takes great job satisfaction from, is problem solving, having a team that collectively is able to deliver that many others cannot is something that brings Mark great pride. There is rarely anything more fulfilling then receiving positive feedback from our existing clients about a job well done, a team member that has a gone above and beyond, or an ongoing issue our clients have had, that we have been able to resolve for them.
