About our Section

The Midlands Section has the largest amount of IGEM members in its region, with the vast amount of IGEM Industrial Affiliates being based in this area. This provides a great opportunity for technical visits and tours, as well as the chance to hear from industry experts at technical paper evenings.

We are an active committee who like to host a range of activities. We meet monthly, in person or via teleconference, and always welcome interest from members who would like to get involved. Please send an email to the address above.  


The current Chair of our Midlands Section is Jordan Rowbottom. Jordan has been working in the gas industry for 15 years starting out as an advanced apprentice to become a First Call Operative for National Grid Distribution back in 2004. After six years in Distribution he moved to National Grid Metering (I&C) as a Technical Engineer, Asset Integrity Manager and Technical Manager and more recently worked in Transmission for 10 months. In June 2018 Jordan moved to Squire Energy as their head of Asset Management and is responsible for the management of their metering (MAM) and Independent Gas Transporters (IGT) businesses, the latter is due to go live in Spring 2019.

Last year Jordan was Chair of the IGEM Young Persons Network. Jordan became an Incorporated Engineer with IGEM following the completion of his Engineering degree with Open University in 2016 and has recently completed his technical report interview for Chartered Engineer status.

Jordan acts as a Mentor for several IGEM colleagues looking to secure professional registration. Through both IGEM roles Jordan hopes to increase membership in the Midlands and across the UK of the younger generation of Engineers who are coming into the industry, supporting individuals in their career and professional progression and helping them to make the most of the fantastic events on offer through IGEM.
