John O'Hanlon

Our Founder

The heart of East West Connect.

The late John O’Hanlon formed East West Connect in 1988 and was the driving force for the growth and development of the company from its early days as a specialist electrical sub-contractor and building the long term relationships with clients that still stand today.

John served his apprenticeship as an electrician with the Irish Navy before moving to London to form the company. John’s reputation within the industry grew and both his professional and personal contacts came to admire and respect his flexible and caring approach to both clients and colleagues. 

The life and soul of our working day.

Paul FitzGerald was a nephew of the late John O’Hanlon and he joined East West Electric Ltd as a trainee engineer whilst studying for his BEng in building services in 2009.

After graduation Paul progressed through the company into his role as pre-construction director, and he helped us to win many prestigious projects including heritage sites. He led and co-ordinated the sales team of estimators and managers taking overall responsibility for tendering and marketing.

After a reorganisation of the company in 2014 Paul provided the knowledge, client base, and continuity from which the company has grown over recent years until his untimely death in 2018. We owe him a huge debt of gratitude for all that he achieved with our company, he is greatly missed.
