Judge Profile

After completing higher education, a career-start with Taylor Woodrow in the UK and British Petroleum in West Africa supporting large equipment in the opencast mining industries, led to a move managing plant in the building, civil engineering and mining industries back in the UK. Experience with various crane types in these environments created an opportunity to move into senior management with a major UK mobile crane and plant distributor and subsequently joining crane manufacturer Liebherr in 2001 as General Manager After-Sales for the UK and Ireland. The focus at Liebherr has been on successfully delivering safe high-quality support to users of Liebherr mobile and crawler cranes.
