CEO Weir Group
When I was in primary school I loved to read and learn about the world we live in and the space in the universe that surrounds us.
My mum and dad encouraged me to get a good education and enter one of the professions. I was good at maths so as I grew older I decided to begin a career in finance. I was the first in my family to go to university and I went on to become a Chartered Accountant which is a great way to learn about and see lots of different types of businesses.
I was lucky to work with clients in many industries including retail, hospitality, construction and transportation but the businesses that I loved working with the most were the engineers where you could see ideas being created on the drawing board then made into real products in the factory to be exported around the world.
I’m an accountant but my education, training and passion for engineering has allowed me to become the CEO of one of the leading engineering companies in the world, where we focus on solving our customers biggest challenges in some of the most difficult places on planet earth and one day it might be on the moon or an asteroid in outer space.
It is a true privilege to have a job where I love every minute of what I do.
