In your work what concepts are sacred? Which rules have you made and which ones do you follow?
I’m not a rule book kind of person but I do have a few principles that I apply to everything. Number one is ensuring everything we do is done safely. As a leader in our business it’s my responsibility to ensure that no one gets injured on my watch.
Number two is about learning. And this applies to myself and my team. Never stop learning. There are always new skills to learn and techniques for us to adopt; we must continually look for ways to improve.
And finally, number three is fun. Life is about living and enjoying what you do.
What’s the best thing about working at Amey?
Without a doubt it’s the people. You’re never alone at Amey regardless of how big or small a problem or issue is. It’s the people around you that come together to create a solution – either for themselves, an individual, their team or our customers.
What are your priorities for your area of the business?
Raising the profile of our Consulting and Rail business by reinforcing our engineering and design capabilities. It’s about celebrating the depth and breadth of our expertise within Amey and our diverse skill set.
What do you like to do when you’re not working?
I have a real love of anything to do with flying, in particular paragliding, but you name it and I will have tried it. Being able to soar and thermal with the birds is such a great way to recharge the batteries.
