I am a Chartered Engineer, Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, who after serving a traditional, indentured Mechanical Engineering apprenticeship worked in plant maintenance and project design and management in various process industries. This culminated in my becoming the Engineering Director for a major UK brewing group before running my own consultancy providing a client focused project management service for multi-disciplined capital investment projects.
I first volunteered at the Museum in 2001 and was immediately involved in managing project works starting with the restoration works to the Boulton & Watt/Maudslay Engine House and Electric House and culminating in Project Aquarius. I joined the Trustee Board in 200? and can be found on a couple of days a week in the old Works Manager’s office managing current projects and dreaming and scheming about future ways of improving the Museum and its sustainability.
