Why I’m good at what I do…

I am a graduate metallurgical engineer from Imperial College London where I also did a PhD in Metallurgy. After my PhD  I  did a post doctoral fellowship in metallurgical research at Strathclyde University Glasgow. My first industrial employment was with British Ropes in Doncaster where I was special projects technologist. After 4 1/2 years I moved to Cowley Oxford to be the Works Metallurgist at the British Leyland car body plant.  From there after 21 months I moved to Worcester to work for Morganite Crucible. I held several Management roles whilst employed by Morganite Crucible.These included Technical Manager, Technical Applications Manager, Quality Manager and finally Qualty and Environmental Manager. I was made redundant in July 2003 when the company decided to outsource Quality and Health & Safety Management services.

I decided to set my business up as a Quality and Environmental Management Consultant within a week of being made redundant  and for the first 6 months worked for a client who needed ISO9001 and ISO 14001 accreditation to maintain his Tier 1 status as a supplier to Ford and Jaguar Landrover. I have been in business for over 13 years and during that time formed links with 2associates, one of whom is responsible for helping new clients to get ISO14001 certification and the other provides assistance for companies with any Health & Safety issues including assistance for ISO18001/45001. I am married with 2 grown up daughters and I spend most of my spare time playing golf, walking or gardening.

Things I like…

I particularly like working with engineering and manufacturing companies who are expanding their businesses and are expanding their customer base to larger companies who expect their suppliers to have robust management systems in place,
