For 11 years worked for GE Aircraft Engines, where the business overhauled passenger aircraft engines for 100's of customers, held a range of positions of varying responsibilities, finally leaving as a Sourcing Manager.

Some of my key responsibilities were to manage and lead a large team of people in liaising daily with suppliers and vendors and improving performance levels in line with customer commits.

I was responsible for forecasting of spare parts covering five different engine types. I continuously achieved reduction in stock levels through project work while avoiding any impact on delivery of material to engine build programmes.

I have been green belt and Lean Six Sigma trained and headed up various projects using these skills.

On leaving University I worked for a short time as an engineer, designing test structures for the semiconductor industry and developing new ideas.
