Our Team

Doug Witty
Director/Project Manager

Doug started his role as an apprentice electrician in 1988 for South West Slopes County Council in Harden country NSW. From this point Doug has worked in high rise commercial electrical work in Sydney CBD, hospitals, aged Care, residential, retail and education projects. For several year Doug worked as a services coordinator for Westfield design and constructions which took him from Sydney, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Auckland, New Zealand. Still with an appetite for more Doug worked as a site engineer for a well reputed electrical engineering company in Sydney for four years. With more to explore Doug was offered a position with Ron Bateman Electrical in 2004 as a project manager. 5 years later in 2009 Doug partnered together with David McCann to take over the business from Ron Bateman. Doug in his spare time enjoys, boating, fishing, cycling and generally anything involved with the outdoors.

Dave McCann
Director/Project Manager

Dave joined Ron Bateman Electrical as a 1st year apprentice in 1997. At the interview when asked by Ron “Where do you see your future within the company?” Dave’s response was “Sitting in your seat”. 20 years later and that is exactly where he is. Dave worked from apprentice to tradesman, foreman, estimator and now a Director project manager. Working with RB Electrical & Communication has given Dave a wealth of experience working all facets of the electrical industry. Dave is a strong believer in work life balance dedicating his time to his family and his other love in life football. A keen sportsman and follower of all different sports, Dave does not discriminate with his, and just as with work he gives 100% to everything.

Glenn Bateman
Service/Project Manager

In 1986 as the son of an electrical contractor, choosing the electrical trade felt like a natural fit for Glenn. After completing his apprenticeship and working in team leader roles in both the service and construction sectors Glenn transitioned to a management role in 1996 with RB Electrical & Communication.

As a senior project and services manager in a diverse and ever evolving industry, Glenn is dedicated to utilising his many years of experience to provide an efficient and quality service to our clients. Away from work Glenn is a proud father and surfing enthusiast or as some may say…a surf addict.

Nick Burke
Project Manager

Project Manager for RB Electrical & Communication. Nick works in closely with his clients with all electrical developments from the beginning to the end stages of any project. Nick had been with the R B team since 2012 and has worked his way up filtering each job role on the way through from apprentice to site foreman and now project management. This gives Nick a great incite into the requirements and targets which need to be delivered on site and to convey that in a management sense with the clients needs in mind. Outside the office Nick has a great drive for adventures & fitness. In his spare time you can find him in the gym or racing in a triathlon somewhere across the globe.
