Business Development, Director


Paul Tandy

Operations, Director

I worked at Davis Decade for five years as an service engineer before leaving in 2014. Decade was taken under new ownership and I returned to the company in February 2015.

I have enjoyed my time at Decade Monitoring Solutions working with other former Davis Decade employees to move the company forward and work on exciting new products. In my spare time I enjoy music, boxing and origami.

Dave Barker

Technical, Director

It all started by programming the 8bits in the 80s and playing with electronics. Joining Davis Decade in 1995 I swiftly moved from production to installation, service and calibration and finally Technical Manager ten years later developing existing and new products.

Two years later I moved to Zytek Automotive as an Electronic Engineer until returning to Decade in 2015.

With young children my previous hobbies of playing football and music have been side-lined and replaced by Peppa Pig and Thomas The Tank Engine.
