Our People Brian Palmer

Chief Executive Officer

Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering and winner of the IoD North East Investor Director award, Brian is an engineer turned entrepreneur and has transformed Tharsus into a genuine OEDM business since he took control in 2002.

Like many at Tharsus, he started his career in the automotive sector as a graduate engineer with Nissan more than twenty years ago, moving on to become Programme Manager for diesel engines at Ford.

Striving for continuous improvement is a theme that runs through both his personal and professional life, and as a keen sportsman he’s competed in a variety of events over the years including dinghy racing, running and orienteering events, and several seasons racing Caterham Superlights.

His love of the outdoors – and a challenge – sees him spending time training for triathlon, skiing, trekking, cycling, running and walking the dog with his family on the Northumberland coast.

“Manufacturing is incredibly important to the UK. Through effective collaboration we believe that we can resolve challenges and help our customers to achieve impressive results.”
