Past graduates at React have gone on to become technical leaders in the industry, company directors and some have even started their own businesses.

Our Managing Director joined React as a Graduate!

Phil Redfern: Managing Director

“I joined React back in 2002 after finishing my A-levels on a gap year through the Royal Academy of Engineering’s Year in Industry Scheme. I went on to study for a Masters in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Leeds.

After I graduated, I returned to React to manage one of React’s key business areas and became Sales and Operations Director in 2014. In 2016, I became Managing Director and in 2019 carried out a management buy-out, becoming the majority shareholder in the business. 

Ever since I started at the company, React has given me the opportunity to shape my own career, keep challenging myself and work in a great environment with likeminded people who want to make a difference and get things done. We’ve an ethos and approach which is pretty unique and I want us to continue to build our reach and capability whilst staying true to the values which have underpinned our success”.
