Career History

Since leaving full time education, I have held several positions in the anti-corrosion industry working my way up to my last position as ‘Department Head’ for Blasting & Painting in one of the biggest ship repair yards in the Persian Gulf. I have worked offshore around the world working on Drilling Ships, FPSO, VLCC Tankers, Drilling Platforms, LNG and LPG Tankers, and many other sea going vessels. My position was superintendent/supervisor carrying out all aspects of anti-corrosion including UHP Blasting/Painting within the vessels ballast tanks, engine rooms, main deck, pipe work etc whilst the vessel’s were still trading. Throughout my working life I have worked for several prominent Companies in the anti-corrosion industry, including; Pyeroy Painting Contractors Ltd, Denholm Industrial Services and Corrocoat Benelux B.V etc. I completed a contract in Singapore for MODEC (Dec 2008) where I was sub-contracted out from Dickerman Overseas Ltd to oversee the UHP Blasting and coatings of a conversion of a VLCC into a FSPO. I was responsible for reporting back to the main contractor as well as back to base in the UK. I am very converse with all aspects of safety and routinely submit JSA/TRA, work permits and tool box talks before commencing any contract/job on a daily basis. I have also completed several blasting and painting contracts for the British M.O.D and the work has always been to the highest standard and passed on first inspection. As my career has progressed, so have my responsibilities and for the last sixteen years I have been responsible for the running of the contracts I have worked on. One of the biggest contracts I played a key role in securing was for Denholm and netted £20 million. I take great pride in the work that I do and always give 100% to any task that I complete. I think this is reflected in the fact that I am regularly asked by Companies I have previously worked for to price and complete new contracts for them.
