Obituary: Stuart Carvell

ECA is deeply saddened to hear of the passing of former Regional Manager Stuart Carvell.

Stuart was a dedicated and well-respected figure in the electrical industry who served as ECA’s North East Regional Manager from 2000 to 2014. Before this, Stuart was a successful electrical engineer and business leader.

Stuart enjoyed a long and successful career which began with an electrical apprenticeship. After completing his apprenticeship in 1971, Stuart emigrated to South Africa to work as an electrical technician.

Stuart returned to the UK in 1974 and held a range of electrical engineering and leadership roles with firms including Crown House Engineering, BKE, Haigh and Ringrose, and Quartz Electrical & Mechanical Services, where he worked as Operations Manager until joining ECA as North East Regional Manager in 2000.

Stuart is survived by his wife Katherine and children Christopher and Gemma. He will be remembered by his colleagues and peers as a dedicated leader in the electrical sector with an inspiring commitment to excellence in all his endeavours.

ECA Technical Director Mike Smith said: “Stuart became Regional Manager of the North East at an early stage of my engagement with the ECA as the Member representative for SES over 25 years ago. Stuart was always friendly and professional which allowed him to establish a very effective regional executive and ECA team. Stuart’s encouragement and guidance played a huge part in my development and pathway to becoming ECA President in 2017. Stuart’s insight and counsel will be sorely missed.”

Stuart will be deeply missed by his friends and colleagues in the electrical contracting industry. ECA’s staff wish their sincere condolences to Stuart’s family at this difficult time.
