Chief Engineer – Leading Strategic Product Development
Aggreko is a utilities company which power provides generation and temperature control solutions to customers.
I am a Chief Engineer with over 20 years of experience providing leadership of innovation and strategic product development to drive business growth for leading OEMs. I adopt and implement best practices and systems to lead major transformations which result in considerable improvements in product efficiency and reliability, significant maintenance cost reductions and achievement of the market leader status in the mechanical / electrical sector. I have a broad knowledge of manufacturing processes and viability barriers, which allows me to select the state-of-the-art suppliers and processes for optimum manufacturing routes to maximise the potential capability of designs. I am recognised as a product specialist and systems development expert and have achieved 7 patents for innovative designs related to product and transmission systems that improved vehicle speed, smooth gear change and anti-slip vehicle systems. I am adept at using computer-aided engineering tools to effectively model and simulate product designs and thereby reduce risk in design processes and accelerate development timescales. I use my service engineering expertise to effectively identify root causes of product failures and apply that knowledge backwards to the design and pre-development processes to make genuine improvements and mitigate risks of failures in the field. I take a strategic view of the market analysis and develop products to suit market segments. I develop trusted business relationships and work closely with customers on product designs to understand their requirements and ensure delivery of products that meet their needs.
