I have developed specific expertise in the following areas:
Project, Project Portfolio & Programme Management
20 years hands on experience successfully leading integrated, and often, multi-national teams to deliver multi-discipline engineering capital projects and programmes. Project assignments usually commenced with pre-sanction feasibility studies, through staged gate planning and definition, value engineering and capital sanction. Post sanction, delivering projects within identified critical success factors controlling detailed engineering design, procurement, construction and pre-commissioning phases. Project management would include the commercial, finance, SHE and project risk aspects of the delivery process as well as providing vision and leadership to allow project teams to deliver in a continued value enhancing way.
Industry sectors have included pharmaceutical, biotechnology, fine chemical, energy, food and FMCG within the UK and Europe, for many blue-chip clients including Novartis, GSK, Pfizer, Cadbury, Unilever, Genzyme, Celanese, Premier Foods, ABF, BP Chemicals.
I have successfully delivered Operational Business Plans with Main Board accountability for an entire organisation’s UK and International project portfolio, successfully delivering gross profit objectives and increasing project workload via development of repeat business and emerging markets, peaking at circa £150million aggregate value of projects in progress at any point in time (in 2008 terms).
