John Bramah

Apprenticeship with Rolls Royce was a fairly obvious start for John, the 5th generation of Sheffield metal working engineers.

His subsequent career became specialised in the execution and management of new manufacturing projects for Lotus Cars, Black and Decker in UK, India and Africa, and US Steel in Germany and Wales. He returned to Sheffield to lead the assimilation of the family Aerospace engineering company into a larger conglomerate.

He is Chairman of a global investment company. Outside formal employment he has been Governor of specialist engineering schools, Chairman of the AMRC executive, Science ambassador for SHU, High Sheriff of South Yorkshire and Master Cutler.
