Operations Director

After graduating with a master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from (IFMA) French Institute for Advanced Mechanical Engineering in 2002, I developed my career as a Project Manager within IT, which included roles within the Space industry.

I was Project Manager within various Space and Defence programmes involving communications with satellites before joining the IACS team in 2018.

As Operations Director, I work with our board of directors to steer the business. Day-to-day I also oversee the smooth running of the organisation and its core processes, from tendering and invoicing through to our integrated management systems and framework agreements. It’s a varied role that requires a dynamic skillset. 

In 2022, I obtained my International Welding Engineer Diploma through IACS; it was my first diploma in a different language than my mother tongue. 

This not only helped me to understand the challenges faced on cross-country pipeline construction regarding the welding activities in more detail, but through IACS we can now offer this service in-house in addition to our network of experienced consultants.

What I love most about IACS is its status as a family business. We thrive on delivering high-quality service, but this is only achieved through our team and its caring approach both with clients and our consultants. It’s a great feeling to be a part of a business in this way and I know that this will support our future ambition.

What excites me is how we plan to evolve as a business, whether this is being a part of the Net Zero Energy revolution, hydrogen and the green energy sector or IACS Training and Education as we support the next generation of Pipeline Inspectors.

I am a proud father of two lovely children and have a cat called Treacle. I really enjoy travelling and exploring new places but watching a game in a rugby stadium is one of my favourite places to be.
