What do you enjoy most about Mott MacDonald?

The first thing is the wide variety of projects worldwide and Global partners and clients making it a fascinating and cultural place to work. The second is that in my role there is no routine, I enjoy the freedom and flexibility Mott MacDonald has given.

What has been your favourite project to date?

By far, it has to be the Lake Turkana wind project in Kenya. I have enjoyed the technical and complex aspects within it. I was also able to meet the Prime Minister of Kenya and now feel proud that I have been part of this project that is going to make a massive impact on the country, it will reach commercial operation in 2017 as construction is now well underway..

If you won the lottery, what would be the first thing you would buy?

I would buy houses all over the world, but the first house I'd buy would be one on the coast of Kenya.

Who or what inspires you?

My wife, she pushes me on a daily basis to be better.
