After graduating in Metallurgy & Materials Science from the
University of Wales in 1982, I worked for 5 years as a research
scientist in a corrosion section. I then turned to the industrial
insurance market & have in the last 30 years worked for Factory
Mutual, Commercial Union, Wellington 2020 Syndicate at Lloyds, as
a consultant, as Engineer Construction & Mining at Chubb
Technical Risks in London and and now work again as a
consultant, Bacon Risk Engineering.
My work takes me all over the world looking at a wide variety of
construction and mining projects providing practical advise to clients
to reduce their property and business interruption risk profile to
support the underwriting of these risks in the London market.
I am a Chartered Engineer, Member of the Institute of Fire Engineers and Fellow of the Institute of
Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3) and joined the MinSouth Council in 2011 becoming
President in the 2015/16 year & then joined the MTD board in 2014.
