Hobbies, pets, family
I live in Telford with my wife Lorraine and our rescue dog Fudge. Lorraine and I have been married for 16 years and have 4 children between us and 7 grandchildren….at the moment. I don’t have any specific hobbies but we both enjoy getting away in a touring caravan when we can. We tend to aim for the smaller touring sites that have local dog walks and, hopefully, a nearby dog friendly pub. I do enjoy a bit of landscape photography and, many moons ago, I did have my own darkroom, back in the pre-digital age. Many years ago used to live very close to the Allett headquarters in a small village called Tixall and I went to secondary school here in Hixon. Also, when at junior school, I was in the same class as Austin, the Allett business owner.
Working life so far
My working life officially started as an apprentice at RAF Stafford as a Fitter General, however the majority of my working life was spent at Ricoh in Telford. Over these 23 years I held a number of different positions including Production Manager, Reconditioning Manager and Quality Assurance Manager. The time at Ricoh has shaped my way of thinking and influenced my approach to problem solution. As Ricoh is a Japanese organisation the approach, processes and methods were/are very structured and detailed, with a strong drive towards right first time. Since leaving Ricoh I’ve worked in a number of different sectors, usually in an Operation Management role, and very recently I was working for a company, as the Factory Manager, manufacturing timber frame panels for the construction industry.
Working at Allett
My intention is to apply and transfer my knowledge and experience in the areas of problem solution via root cause identification, to enable the business to develop and improve, through which we should enhance our customer experience.
What Does Your Role At Allett Involve?
My job title is QHSE & Improvement Manager i.e. Quality, Health and Safety & Improvement Manger), which in essence means; 1. To manage the quality process and drive improvements within product quality and service quality 2. To Manage the H&S process and ensure we, at least, are compliant to all legislative requirements 3. To promote and manage Continuous Improvements (kaizen) across the business. In conclusion it’s a fairly broad-based remit, but a great opportunity to make improvements and help the business move forward.
