Why did you join?
I joined LR because of the strong brand, long history and interesting mission of the organisation. The graduate scheme offered a brilliant training ground with practical experience in the offshore sector coupled with quality management and people skills development. I have always enjoyed being close to the ocean from sailing to kitesurfing. a skill I developed as I have travelled the world with LR!
Why did you stay?
I have stayed at LR because of the brilliant opportunities that this diverse and global business has provided. Over the last 13 years, I have had a different role every 2 years, working in the Marine business unit, LR Group and now our Energy business. I have had the chance to travel the world, highlights include surveying superyachts in Falmouth, crossing the Atlantic 6 times on Queen Mary 2 and living in Malaysia for a couple of years.
What is your favourite thing about LR?
The people! Our global footprint gives me the chance to work with people from across the globe who share in the same vision of making the world a safer and more sustainable place.
