What’s your greatest personal achievement?
Is it too much of a cliché to say…. marrying my wife? We’ve been together since we were teenagers and have managed to clock up nearly 35 years of marriage. All through that time Janice has been by my side, supporting me from the early days of constant studying to long nights as the career developed. I’m pleased to say we are still as happy as ever.
What advice would you have given yourself at the beginning of your career?
Work hard, be passionate about what you do and never shy away from getting your hands dirty.
What made you pick Amey to come and work for?
Andy asked me ….and I was very pleased he did. It’s a great business and a fun place to work.
How do you fill your time when you are not working?
Three grandkids, two dogs and a garden that needs constant maintenance keeps me busy enough.
Where would you like to see the utilities business in the coming five years?
Becoming a profitable business, respected for the service we provide to our clients and a place people want to work.
