    Robert Gaines

    Director, Engineering

    Rob joined On Target in April 2004. Starting as a Business Development Executive in the Engineering sector, Rob developed some of the team's most important accounts. He quickly moved into a Consultant role followed by promotion to Senior Consultant. Consistently successful, Rob's efforts culminated in him winning the 2010 Performer of the Year Award and he was promoted to Managing Consultant, Automation and Control teams in October 2011. Rob joined the Board in November 2012, taking responsibility for all four Engineering teams, as Director, Engineering.

    The demands of life with young children means that Rob’s love of sport is now more often expressed as a keen spectator. However, he always holds his own on the sports field whenever there is an opportunity.

    Bjorn’s superb track record in commercial businesses and customer-facing experience enabled him to embrace his original role as Business Development Executive in the Mechanical team, growing the client base as the team expanded. He narrowly missed out on the 2013 Performer of the Year award with some excellent new business wins.
    During 2014 Bjorn continued his success by moving into a Consultant role and in 2015 was promoted to Senior Consultant. At the beginning of 2016, Bjorn was promoted to Managing Consultant, across the whole Mechanical Engineering Team.

    Bjorn is a keen runner and swimmer, but his most impressive sporting achievement (perhaps) is his ability to walk 100 metres on his hands – with only the aid of a pint or two, purely for the purposes of careful preparation!
