Andy has had a long and successful career at Morson Projects, working as a Project Manager on a range of multi-disciplinary projects across the nuclear, pharmaceutical, and heavy industrial sectors.
Andy, who already has established relationships with many of Morson Projects’ clients, will be transitioning over to manage Jon’s key accounts in the coming months.
We caught up with Andy, to find out more about what he can bring to the table for our clients.
Andy, tell us a bit more about your career history?
I started my working life as an electrical apprentice for BNFL at the Springfield’s fuel manufacturing facility in Preston. Over a twenty-year period I progressed through the company culminating in the role of Electrical Plant Engineer and I worked on a number of projects including the refurbishment and commissioning of the Uranium Ore Dissolution line and the design, installation and programming of a new control system for the Uranium Hexafluoride plant. This, on top of running and managing busy maintenance teams supporting the plants facilities provided a great foundation for the rest of my career.
The decision to decommission the countries Magnox fleet of nuclear reactors and a general downturn in the global market for nuclear fuel presented an opportunity to leave BNFL and this coincided with a position at Morson Projects’ Cumbria office delivering a programme of asset condition inspections and assessments for a number of the legacy plants on the Sellafield Site. This relationship has continued for the last eleven years and I now support our Divisional Director, Ian Ross, engaging around 110 operatives managed from our Westlakes offices.
Morson Projects has offered me the opportunity to deliver a diverse range of professional services projects covering asset management, technical documentation, safety case and multi-discipline design for clients including Sellafield, Astra Zeneca, Hewlett Packard, MOD and Breedon Cement.
My role within Morson Projects has grown over the last decade and was cemented earlier this year with promotion to the senior management team. The opportunity to pick up the business development role left by Jon alongside continuing to oversee project delivery seemed an obvious move in my career development.
What are you most looking forward to doing in your new role?
Throughout my career I have met and worked with some fantastic people, built some great relationships and made a few good friends along the way. This new role should allow me the opportunity to get involved with a broader range of opportunities, revisit some of my old acquaintances and hopefully make some new ones.
What benefits will clients see with you as their key account lead?
My background has always been delivery focused and I have been lucky enough to work on a variety of differing projects throughout my working life. This, coupled with over a decade of experience at Morson Projects, should enable me to not only understand a client’s brief but to be able to recognise potential opportunities to bring real added value to our offering. Reputations are built on delivering what you promise and hopefully this role will allow me to demonstrate that commitment both personally and on behalf of Morson Projects.
