Joined Doosan: 1985
Original job title: Technical Apprentice
Current job title: Executive Director
From the start, I found the company to be extremely supportive in providing training and career opportunities to anyone who was willing to make the personal commitment.
As Doosan is a global organisation, I knew there would be many opportunities for overseas assignments and travel.
During my career, I’ve been able to progress through various roles and continue formal education because of Doosan’s support.
As an Executive Director specifically responsible for implementing a large-scale business transformation programme, I have a fantastic opportunity to make real improvements to the way the company delivers its business.
I can ensure that our processes and systems are ready for the challenges we face in the global marketplace.
I became part of the Operations Group Senior Management team when I was appointed as Director of Project Control.
I was responsible for managing and developing our Project Control capability across operational execution centres internationally.
Based in Renfrew, I managed 180 professional staff who provided engineering support to our Services projects.
Doosan supported my continued learning and gave me the opportunity to manage a complex and challenging multi-million pound Alliance EPC project at Sellafield.
I was appointed Project Manager responsible for the delivery of a wide range of projects for both the UK and US markets. During the following years I gained valuable Project Management experience working on thermal power, pharmaceutical and nuclear projects.
I was promoted to the position of Production Superintendent of overall responsibility for the operating performance of the Pipe & Manifold department.
