Gareth Barber

Managing Director

Gareth Barber is an experienced board director with a proven track record in business growth. An innovative and entrepreneurial leader, he has a distinguished pedigree in the operations and delivery side of complex, multi-site energy efficiency projects. Plus, he has an impressive portfolio of successful, turnkey projects for blue-chip clients on his resume. His most recent achievement was to lead a team on the management buy-out at BGES.

Prior to joining the BGES team, Gareth was Operations Director at WEMS International, where he helped to take the company’s P&L performance from £500k to £14.5m in just 4 years. He also played a key part in raising £13m of PE investment for capital growth. Gareth has also held senior engineering roles at Interserve and Space Engineering Services, and served in the British Army’s Corp of Royal Engineers.

Outside of work, Gareth is a busy family man with a passion for local team Sheffield United and Japanese food. Unlike most Brits, he hates queuing and he’s intolerant of middle-lane hoggers!

Mike Dauris

Operations Director

Mike Dauris is well respected figure in the BMS industry with over 22 years track record and sector experience. Having graduated with honours in Mathematics from the University of Lancaster, Mike cut his teeth with BG Controls and more latterly with BG Energy Solutions (BGES). Since then, he has honed and developed his skills in the field of project management. He has carved out a career that has taken him from bureau engineer through to the position of Projects Director – with full accountability for all projects and commercial contracting.

Mike is passionate about skills development and actively supports colleagues with their own careers pathways within the company. He takes pride and satisfaction in helping to nurture the next generation of BMS engineers.

When not at work, Mike can be found taking part in duathlons or enjoying a pint of craft ale. He much is less keen on half marathons (and yet he’s training for his third); gardening and DIY.

John Roberts

Director of Sales

John joined BG Energy Solutions in July 2017 and has recently been promoted to Energy and Service Director. With over 40 years of service in the HVAC and BMS industry, John has worked on everything from prestigious projects around the world to a service call at his local golf club. In recent years, he has spent time working closely with clients and end users developing relationships for growth in the Energy and Service Division.

Previous roles have been with BMSI (Regional Manager for the North & Scotland), Johnson Controls (UK Project Manager), Siemens Building Technologies (Regional Manager), and Integral (UK Controls Manager).

When he’s not working, John can be found enjoying a game of golf at his local golf club “The Bramhall Golf Club”, family life and his cars – and saving up for his ‘dream motor’, the BMW I8. He has little time for anyone who says: “I have never done that before” !
