I joined Sewell in January 2006, originally as a management trainee, trying my hand in the many different areas of construction.

The Sewell culture is built on a “can do” attitude – we work together to deliver the best results.

Since I joined Sewell, the company has grown a lot but it has always maintained its family ethos and continues to invest in its people, empowering individuals and providing a platform for career progression.

I’ve had a lot of fun times at Sewell and have learnt a lot so far. My proudest moment was being part of the leadership team that successfully completed the challenging £16 million site consolidation project at BAE Systems from 2012 to 2014.

Having spent a number of years working at BAE, we were awarded the contract to reduce the footprint of the site following large scale redundancies. The project was very sensitive and logistically challenging. But with teamwork, we achieved what at times seemed impossible.

One fact you may not know about me: I once featured on page three of the Sun newspaper. I was in the crowd for the Manchester United celebratory parade when they won the treble in 1999, which was featured in the paper.
