About QR_ strategy, new business, account management, project delivery, recruitment, business process, and little bit of everything else!
I am passionate about…
Seeing QR_ grow and add real world value to our clients. Since joining the company, I have helped transform it from a provider of quality automotive BoM & Engineering Change Management resource into a fully-fledged Product Data Management (PDM) consultancy.
After graduating from university, prior to joining QR_ I worked in teaching and sales, before returning to university in 2006 to undertake an MSc in IT.
My QR story
I joined QR_ in 2007, and have been a member of the board of Directors as QR_ has grown from a handful of employees to an organisation employing approximately 100 talented staff members. Our team now work on a varied range of projects with a number of international clients.
At QR_ we have recognised that increasing product complexity and global manufacturing strategies are driving unprecedented growth in the complexity of Automotive PDM. To meet this challenge we have developed a team of highly motivated, trained, and professional PDM specialists.
In recent years we have married our deep knowledge of PDM to the science of operational performance to create a consultancy service that is dedicated to PDM optimisation. We work in partnership with existing teams and technology solutions to unlock value, eliminate waste, and deliver lasting performance improvements.
In the past 3 years alone we have worked on over 75 projects for 4 major OEMs and more than 20 suppliers and partners. I am really looking forward to strengthening our position and helping the Automotive Product Development industry tackle what I see as the three biggest challenges:
- Engineering Empowerment: “Enabling engineers to engineer”.
- Progressive Development Maturity: “Avoiding the gateway rush”.
- Continuous Improvement: “Making continuous improvement really work”.
When I am not working for QR…
As dedicated family man with 4 children I now find myself a reluctant expert in the fields of conflict resolution, resource management, catering, and multi-media entertainment. I love a good spreadsheet and dream about playing turn-based computer games or raving in Ibiza.
