He has worked for all members of the supply network, from specialist suppliers and subcontractors to government employers, project financiers/developers and asset managers.

His work has taken him to projects around the world including Australia, Georgia, Nigeria, Bahrain, Bulgaria, Oman, Hungary etc. The projects have been diverse, covering many sectors including residential and mixed use developments, iconic buildings, oil and gas pipelines, petrochemical facilities, roads, bridges, railways and many others.

He has spent significant time on-site on major projects working closely with the commercial team as projects are built out helping them to understand and manage their commercial risks
