Ryan Sweetman

Business Development Manager

I have been recruiting within the aviation industry since 2012 and joined Protec Technical in October 2018. My focus is on developing Protec’s existing client relationships and developing fresh new business opportunities for Protec Technical. In my spare time I enjoy playing Golf (Badly, but better than the boss {please don’t tell him}) and follow Arsenal FC (More fool me)


Neilsen Wallis

Operations Manager

I started working in the aviation industry in 2006 with Protec Technical before relocating overseas for a number of years.

Having returned to England there was only ever going to be one company I would return to within aviation and that is Protec Technical as the brand has a high reputation in the market and I am delighted to return for a second term and this time as the Operations Manager overseeing a professional and dedicated team.

When I am not working I enjoy watching West Ham and have visited many grounds in England to watch them.
