Mark Helmich

Managing Director

MARK’S DEDICATION AND UNDERSTANDING OF DESIGN WAS RECOGNISED BY THE BRITISH INDUSTRIAL DESIGN ASSOCIATION WHO APPOINTED HIM AS THE REGIONAL DIRECTOR AND CHAIRMAN FOR WALES AND THE WEST.

Mark started his career training to become a mechanical engineer. Having completed a four year apprenticeship he left industry and spent 14 years as a full time lecturer, teaching at a further education college on computer aided engineering and product visualisation. He was enticed to leave teaching to join GX where he has been for the past 24 years.

At GX Mark initially worked on a wide variety of projects as a mechanical engineer, before being asked to take on the role of managing director in 2007. Mark has brought cohesion to the business by marrying the three divisions, product design with control system development and their water resource management specialists GX Environmental, creating one international business.

A bit about Mark

Mark is a firm believer in sharing best practice and integrating engineering specialists from different disciplines to help innovate and create the best solution. Coming from an engineering background himself he enjoys the challenge of seeing how GX can turn clients’ ideas into a commercial reality.

His dedication and commitment to developing design led him to be appointed as the Regional Director and Chairman for the Wales and the West branch of the British Industrial Design Association.
