Mark Keogh established Power Proving Services in 1998 and rebranded the company UON in 2010. Today Mr Keogh is the Executive Chair of UON, a business he has been leading since 2002. He has overseen the expansion of the business from a two-man operation building load banks to a team of over 300 delivering total integration of power and water solutions in one simplified process, from delivery to ongoing support.
Central to his vision is innovation. He has overseen the development of new, improved solutions, through customisation of standardised solutions and investment into research and development. Many of these solutions have had their efficiency proven through independent tests and accreditation with the Clean Energy Council.
His business became the National winner of the 2012 Telstra Commonwealth Bank Medium Business of the Year Award, Telstra WA Business of the Year and Telstra WA Medium Business of the Year Awards and RISE WA Business of the Year Award in 2020. Numerous supplier awards have also been received from Tier One miners such as BHP and Rio Tinto. In 2021 Mark was a finalist in the Austmine Champion of Innovation Award.
