A Chartered Engineer with experience gained in a variety of industry sectors in senior roles operating as Client, Consultant and Contractor giving a balanced perspective of the current and future operational and market environment.
Tony joined Balfour Beatty in 1998 and was responsible for the successful integration of the four regional Cabling businesses into a UK Division (circa £100m with 700 FTE's ). Following the formation of Balfour Beatty Utility Solutions, the Power Solutions (circa £350m with 1400 FTE's and 500 subcontractors) business unit was formed to address and service the EHV product line. As Managing Director, he was responsible for the further integration of the former Cabling and OHL Transmission Divisions and the continued development of both the UK and International operational footprint.
The opportunity presented by OFGEM for the Offshore Transmission Operator Licences led to the formation of the Cabling and Offshore business unit, where he was responsible for the development of the strategy and subsequent operational delivery that saw growth in the UK market from circa £100m to £170m in 2 years. As Global Operations Director, this success led to an international play using in-house developed market leading niche mechanical installation techniques to be implemented in Australasia.
