Andy joined WRc as Commercial Director during 2015. He has twenty years’ experience of the utility sector in the UK. Thirteen of those were in the water and wastewater industry and the past eight years at Morrison Utility Services (MUS). His role as MUS Innovation Director focussed on identifying sector trends and changes in legislation to ensure that the Morrison service delivery model was both fit for purpose and competitive. Andy has a first degree in Physical Geography from Leeds University and an MBA from Edinburgh Business School. More recently, he was delighted to win a bursary, awarded by USIT, to take part in the “High Potentials' Change Leadership Programme” at Harvard Business School.
Matching the technical focus and calibre of WRc to both persistent, and some of the changing needs of the water, gas, and resource sectors has been, and remains, a source of enjoyment and pride for Andy. Representing, and helping steer an organisation with a 90 year back catalogue of applied engineering and scientific endeavour is a real privilege. During our event we will explore how trust and independence may be created, and touch upon areas of today’s business where these principles are of increasing value in our sectors.
