Chris Willis Joins Signal Solutions as Head Of Engineering

Chris Willis Signal Solutions

We’re a tight-knit bunch at Signal Solutions.  So, when someone new joins the team, we do some pretty intense vetting…

Well, we ask them what their three favourite films are, anyway.

And on that note, we’re delighted to welcome Chris Willis, our new Head of Engineering, to the team! 

We asked Chris a few questions to help us (and you) get to know him better – and thankfully, he passed the test.

So, Chris, welcome aboard – let’s kick off by asking what you do in your role day-to-day?

Thanks! As Head of Engineering at Signal Solutions, I handle everything from project management to the installation of products and commissioning. 

Tell us a bit about yourself – what’s your background?

I’m from Bagshot in Surrey, and I’ve worked in Plumbing and Heating for more than 10 years – hence the engineering stuff. Before joining Signal Solutions, I ran my own business for 3 years.

Now for the important stuff - what are your top 3 books?

I’ll have to be honest here – I’m not much of a reader.

(Note: because we couldn’t count The Guinness Book of World Records 2019, 2020 and 2021 as valid entries, we let Chris choose his favourite three films instead).

My all-time favourite is Hook – the Robin Williams film is an absolute classic.

And as a self-confessed Marvel fanatic, my next two would be Guardians of the Galaxy and Thor Ragnarok. 

What is your favourite quote?

Self-belief and hard work will always earn you success.

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I love to go fishing, as well as spending time with my family and friends. In fact, I’m answering these questions while I’m on a fishing trip – which is very apt.

Tell us one interesting thing people might not know about you?

I have a doppelganger.

Or an identical twin brother, whatever you want to call him.

We’re actually mirror twins, which means that I’m left-handed, and he’s right-handed – neat, right?

Anyway, I’m 20 minutes younger, and I never let him forget that he’s past it!
