Where do you live?
Grantham in Lincolnshire, United Kingdom. English mathematician and physicist, Sir Isaac Newton was born in nearby Woolsthorpe Manor and attended the Kings School in Grantham. Sir Isaac made many of his most important discoveries about light and gravity during 1666/67 whilst based at Woolsthorpe. I also attended the Kings School but have not quite yet managed to reach his standards. Grantham is the home of the Angel and Royal Hotel, which is one of the oldest Inns in the world, originally established by the Knights Templar in 1203.
What is your background and role?
I am Managing Director of Delta-Simons Environmental Consultants, a founding member of Inogen Environmental Alliance. I also sit on the Inogen board. The Managing Director role in the UK is equivalent to the CEO role in the US, so I am involved in every part of the business. My background is in geology and I have worked largely in the real estate sector on contaminated land projects. More recently, I have been supporting our growing teams in EHS&S working across the Inogen network and also growing a UK based Environmental Planning team. Within Inogen I am championing our efforts to expand the Inogen real estate offering, including building a relationship with global industry bodies such as the Global ESG Benchmark for Real Assets (GRESB) and promoting our services within the field of sustainability and well-being.
What Inogen project are you most proud of?
We made a commitment to supporting Antea Group in developing the tech sector and our involvement in one of our large, global tech company client accounts has gone from strength to strength working across a number of European countries and setting the bar for a range of EHS&S projects in this sector. More recently, we have been working on expanding Inogen’s reach in the real estate sector and are very proud to be delivering EMEA-wide Environmental due diligence work for a large tech-powered online retailer, working with a number of Inogen Associates to deliver over 500 projects in Europe and the Middle East.
