Employee Spotlight: Dan Beaulieu | Eclipse Magnetics

Employee Spotlight: Dan Beaulieu

At Eclipse, our employees are at the centre of our business, and we want to shine a spotlight on the individuals who make our workplace a thriving and dynamic community.

This month, we caught up with Filtration Sales Manager, Dan Beaulieu, to find out more about his life both inside and outside of work.

When did you join Eclipse?

I joined Eclipse back in March 2022. Prior to this, I worked as Area Sales Manager at Bowers Group, another company within the Spear and Jackson Group. In total, I’ve been working for the Spear and Jackson Group for four and a half years now.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

Every day is different in my role, making it varied and challenging. However, the aspect that I enjoy most is being able to travel to meet our oversees customers, giving me the opportunity to see and experience new cultures whilst showcasing our magnetic filtration products to customers across the world.

Tell us about your life outside of work

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time outdoors. My hobbies include snowboarding, surfing, motorbiking and climbing – anything that gets the adrenaline flowing!

Tell us a surprising fact about yourself

One fact about me that many people don’t realise is that I have African American heritage.

What is your biggest career highlight so far?

My biggest career highlight so far has been having the opportunity to travel to the other side of the world, for business that I created. I recently travelled to New Zealand to visit a customer in the steel industry who is currently trialling our Automag filtration systems on their application. This was a real career highlight, and I can’t wait to see how the project develops.

What are you most looking forward to in 2024?

One of the highlights of 2024 is set to be MACH Exhibition, in April, at the NEC in Birmingham. I’m looking forward to having the opportunity to meet potential customers, to discuss their application challenges, and to offer them new and innovative solutions.
