I help organisations identify and develop key operational and commercial strategies to deliver high levels of performance from their assets.

With 20 years of experience within the construction materials industry I have a broad knowledge of the sector and have supplied products and services to clients, tier 1 contractors and subcontractors throughout this time.

With a Master’s Degree in Business Administration and a background in both commercial management and operational management within the construction materials industry I am able to manage successful policies and plans to deliver change and performance within their business, I enjoy working with people to identify the opportunities available to them and find the best solution for them.

I am a believer in development of the team through coaching and learning and have a track record of delivering results.

• Identifying strategies to deliver a competitive advantage
• Creating a positive team culture
• Managing profit centre and cost control
• Identifying sustainable solutions
• Coaching and developing team members
• Delivering a positive culture to health and safety

A track record of managing teams to deliver results has given me the experience to help your business to achieve the results you are looking for.

I can help your organisation to deliver & identify strategies to help your business and people to develop.

If your business is looking to grow, deliver new routes to market or simply disrupt ‘how things have always been done’ I would welcome the opportunity to learn about your business.
