About me

Initially from the West of Scotland where I joined the world famous John Brown Engineering in 1981, working across the globe in locations such as Iraq, China, Malaysia & Australia to name a few, in a variety of positions until the General Electric acquisition in 2000. I moved to the UAE in 2004 where I initially managed the first 9FA gas turbine combined cycle project in the region in Umm Al Nar, in Abu Dhabi for Arabian Power before moving to the role of Outage Excellence Expert where I rolled out and managed the unique General Electric outage planning process across the Middle East, Africa & North Europe engaging with both customer & GE teams in these locations. 

I then managed the Contractual Services Quality Management Program, covering the same areas as before moving to the GE Digital Energy group as Service Director. Laterally, I took over the position of O&M Plant Director for the Sabiya plant in Kuwait before finally moving to be the Customer Services Leader for the Emirates Global Aluminium plants both in Al Taweelah, Abu Dhabi & Jebel Ali, Dubai.
