I started my early career training to become an Industrial Engineer – I studied at night school to gain the Institute of Management Services Certificate and Diploma.  I am also qualified to conduct Time Studies and in the MOST system.

My career took a slight deviation when I started working for Peugeot Motor Company – specialising in Line Feeding and Logistics operations.  At the same time, my studies continued and I completed the Institute of Logistics Diploma.  Following this I transferred within Peugeot to the Spare Parts warehousing operation, during which time I completed the MSc in Logistics and Supply Chain management.


After 9 years at Peugeot I then joined the world of 3rd party logistics.  I have worked with Ryder, Exel / DHL, Norbert Dentressangle (XPO), Ceva, and TNT.  My 3rd party career has taken me all over the world and been very enjoyable, making some great friends along the way.  I have worked mostly in warehouse operations solution design, supporting business development tenders and reviewing existing operations.  I have worked in all sectors and covered all types of storage media and handling equipment, both manual and automated.  I have also worked on numerous WMS specification and implementation projects.


I was self-employed for a period of time when I worked for an Automation Systems Integrator, who I later joined as a full-time employee.  I worked on projects that included Pick and Put to Light systems, Conveyors and Sorters, AGV's and AMR's, Shuttle Systems, Autostore and Automated Packing Systems.


Following on from this I worked for Cirrus Logistics using the CLASS Warehouse Simulation Software.  My role was divided between Project Managing Consultancy projects and leading training courses and developing training materials.


I have been self-employed since January 2020.  I have been working on projects for private clients in addition to working with other Consulting companies.
