I have over thirty five years operational and senior management experience of the freight transport, supply chain and maritime sectors within the UK / Europe and S.E. Asian markets. I initially founded my interim business to offer freight transport-related clients experienced, short-term and flexible senior management capacity and cater for one of the most poorly understood areas of management in the transport industries - project management. Poor project management is fundamentally responsible for the most spectacular cost over-runs and affects every sector of the industry. From asset sale and purchase, operations or commercial business development, successful management requires the tight, detailed and effective control of Cost, Time, Scope, Risk, Quality and Benefit.

Finding the right interim or project manager to work with you is a choice not to be taken lightly. I know that clients rely upon my advice and expertise. That’s why I take great care to understand your business and thoroughly explore your needs, the scope of your goals and your budget. Everything I do focuses on genuinely creating value and extracting cost from your operations.
