Managing Director

How long have you worked at Fichtner?

I started in 96, so 19 years.

How did you land your position at Fichtner?

I was promoted to Managing Director after starting at Fichtner as a Technical Engineering Director.

What does your job involve?

A good mix of managing teams, making sure the company is working and making money, creating future strategies and dealing with individual clients. So I still do a good balance of jobs within my role.

What makes Fichtner a great place to work?

The staff, the mentality and ethos of the people that work here make it a great place to work.

Why is Fichtner different from other engineering consultancies?

Fichtner is different because we’re very targeted, we deliberately employ driven individuals, who want to progress. We’re very flexible, so we allow people to progress in all sorts of ways. We’re also very client focused.

What advice would you give to someone who’s thinking of applying to work here?

We want people to work hard, but we also offer a lot of opportunities. We’ll decide if we want you, but you should decide that you want us as well.

What’s your biggest achievement?

I love my family, so bringing up two great kids has been a great achievement. In terms of work, building Fichtner to one hundred staff and having a real influence in the UK market.

What’s an interesting fact about yourself?

I’ve worked all over the World - Japan, Germany, America among other places, which I’ve really enjoyed.
