Head of Distribution
What led you to FM Conway?
Years ago, I was looking for a new, more challenging role and a newly created Credit Control position at FM Conway was advertised. I applied through an agency and was successful in securing the position.
How did you get into your division?
After a short spell away from FM Conway I was looking to rejoin the business and was offered a position in the newly formed Resource & Planning department. After successful stewardship of looking after vehicle logistics for the surfacing division, I was offered the opportunity to form a transport planning team to help drive efficiencies within the transport division.
Within your specialism, what do you see as a growing trend over the next 5 years?
Safety will remain paramount within the transport sector. With the accelerated advancements in technology, I believe automated roads and vehicles will advance significantly over the next 5 years.
How has your career progressed since joining FM Conway?
My career has progressed hugely since joining FM Conway. From beginning my Conway career as a Credit Controller to working my way to a Finance Manager and then to Resource Manager, I gained a great understanding of FM Conway and its operations. Following a short break running my own business, I returned to FM Conway where I now run my own team as the Transport Planning Manager.
What motivates you?
I am motivated by making a difference. Whether that be from improvements to efficiencies, reducing costs or providing a better service for the business activities.
What would you be doing if you didn’t pursue your current career?
I would love to be a chef, food excites me. I also enjoy playing with cars so perhaps something to do with mechanics or engineering as I always need to know how something works.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
Cooking, restoring and building cars, spending time with family and DIY.
