A year later he relocated to Montreal, Canada as director of business integration, before moving back to Brisbane, Australia and joining Origin Energy four years later in 2014.
Welsh born Evans joins Verton from electronics manufacturer Hetech, where he has been engineering manager since the start of the year. He began his career in 2010 as an electronics consultant at technology services company Sagentia, before being appointed systems engineer at Domino Printing in 2016. After two years with Domino, he moved onto his role as engineering manager at Hetech.
