Q. How has your career at Turner & Townsend developed?

A. Since joining Turner & Townsend, the company’s revenue has grown significantly, from less than £30m to today’s £600m.

I have also led a number of mergers and acquisitions helping to create the business as it stands today. 

Q. Which project are you most proud of being involved in at Turner & Townsend?

Growth is important for us as it both develops our market position and supports creating great career opportunities for our staff.  In the next five years, we will look to cement our position in our different markets across the globe through growth, as well as the development of our service model and nurturing our staff.
