Camirus employ a small team of experienced project managers, specialist consultants and analysts to support projects. Our core skills are in economics, engineering and management. Many of our projects are delivered as partnerships with larger organisations.

 

 

Matthew Rhodes established the company in 2017. He’s spent 20 years in the low carbon energy sector and before that 15 years in manufacturing and in management consultancy, working in a variety of sectors including food and chemicals for Unilever and the development of batteries for electric vehicles with RWE. For many years he ran a specialist engineering and project development company supporting clients developing renewable energy and low carbon construction projects across the UK and internationally.

Since 2012 he’s worked extensively with economic development bodies and local government in the UK, including as a board member of the Greater Solihull and Birmingham Local Enterprise Partnership and Chair of West Midlands’ Energy Capital.

 

John Duncan joined the company in 2021. His career spans 20 years in consulting and programme management principally to manufacturing firms in the UK and Europe.  He has a technical and managerial background having worked in industry prior to consulting including on the design, development and initial operation of energy generation systems and industrial equipment in the UK and USA. He has worked in a variety of sectors including automotive, aerospace and defence and has worked with a variety of economic development agencies throughout his career.  His work on energy generation equipment was recognised through a Design Council Award. He is a Charted Engineer, has degrees in mechanical engineering and holds an MBA as well as a Diploma in Energy and Industrial Sustainability.

He attempted to retire in 2018. However he got involved in a construction project and found that he had a continued appetite for technical and project management work. With his interest and background in industry and his strong belief in the importance of having a prospering manufacturing sector, he felt compelled to get involved at Camirus when he heard about the projects being supported by the firm.
