Technical Director for Implementation
My career in motorway communications began in the mid 90’s, working for the West Midlands Regional Maintenance Contractor. In 2006 I joined Mouchel as the Lead Commissioning Engineer for Active Traffic Management and then Managed Motorways. I joined 4way in 2011 and have led the implementation and handover of connected roads schemes ever since.
I spend much of my time working with control room operators, witnessing first-hand the pressure they work under on a daily basis. As demand on those services continues to grow, I understand the impact that underperforming technology assets and systems can place on already stretched resources and I’m committed to finding the solutions. “Right first time” is only one part of the 4way team’s ethos in this regard. We’re driven to find ways of maintaining high standards of system performance well into the future. Robust processes at the point of handover and effective optimisation that supports operations rather than hinders it; that’s what I come to work for.
I work on projects all over the country so finding opportunities for quality time at home with my family is something I prioritise. I also enjoy staying active at the gym and following a reasonably successful playing career, am now focussed on the coaching of my local under 16’s football team.
