Ed Wilson , WTC Managing Director
Year joined WTC: 2002
Ed is a third-generation member of the Wilson family. He is the grandson of the WTC founder Jack Wilson and son of WTC Executive Chairman Robert Wilson.
Growing up, Ed had an aptitude for maths, science and problem-solving. With these skills, engineering seemed a logical choice for a profession. He developed a passion for mechanical engineering during his first year at Monash University and chose it as his discipline. Ed worked at both factories in Glen Waverley and Wodonga during his university semester breaks. The experience further confirmed his interest in working in the engineering industry.
Ed joined WTC after graduating from the university as a Mechanical Engineer in 2002. He has now been working at WTC for over twenty years and experienced numerous roles in plant engineering, product engineering, quality, continuous improvement, manufacturing management, customer interface and business unit management.
In 2015, he was appointed as Managing Director of WTC assuming full responsibility for the transformer business units within the Company.
Ed is also a Director of CIGRE Australia and the Australian Power Institute (API).
Outside of work, Ed loves spending time with his family, travelling overseas, spending time outdoors and playing sports (golf and tennis). Ed also played a lot of football in his younger days and now enjoys watching and supporting the Melbourne Football Club.
