A change in careers

Before I joined Frazer-Nash I had a full career commission in the Royal Navy - which was 22 years, starting at the age of 18. I was sponsored by the Navy to go to university and then had a standard officer career until I left in 2002. Frazer- Nash attracted me because its ethos and culture is very similar to that that I experienced in the Royal Navy. It's very open, very professional, and one of the great things you learn in the military is how to get on with people and how to lead people, and manage people and get the best out of people. And I think military people can bring an awful lot to a consultancy, not just from their technical experience but from their general people management experience.

company opportunity

Since joining Frazer-Nash I've done a mix of things. I started off predominantly in the technical side of life delivering systems engineering consultancy into the front end of major programmes, predominantly defence programmes. But over the course of my career I've moved more into operational management - so it's line management, it's ensuring that the right service development is happening, ensuring that the right people are recruited, that we retain our people, that we train our people.

"The role of a consultant is quite interesting - not only must you be technically sound, but you must be technically broad and you must also have a good eye for the commercial aspects."

being a consultant

The role of a consultant is quite interesting - not only must you be technically sound, but you must be technically broad and you must also have a good eye for the commercial aspects. A military career doesn't necessarily prepare you for life on the outside, but what I like about Frazer-Nash is that you very quickly learn the tools of the trade and there are people there to support you to do that.

enjoying the challenges

The culture in the company is very much to deliver excellence. The objective of the company is obviously to make money, but in doing that you need to be the best. Frazer-Nash has a great appetite for growth and with growth comes challenge, and looking forward to the future I want to be part of ensuring that we rise to that challenge and we meet the growth expectations of the company.
