I graduated from Surrey University with Civil Engineering Degree which included a sandwich year working for Specialist Piling Contractor, Cementation. My first post graduate role was with Gifford and Partners working mainly within bridge design and assessment, although I did also design the hull of a Hovercraft at one stage! I spend my last year with Giffords seconded to Hampshire CC working as a resident engineer for the bridges on the Bentley Bypass. As the project came to an end I decided to look for a more commercially focused role and started working for the global specialist construction materials manufacturer Sika. Having started at the grass routes level within the company I progressed, via several development roles, to running the UK 'Contractors' Business Unit with a gross turnover of approx £16m. In Nov 2013 I left Sika and set up my own consultancy Structural Refurbishment Solutions Ltd to provide Sales and Marketing strategy support to the specialist construction product market.
