Operations & QHSE Manager
Gary's experience over 28 years' in the submarine cable industry is built upon the foundations of a strong mechanical engineering background in both civilian and military domains. During his time at Red Penguin, he has overseen many projects from initial concept through to implementation, also providing technical oversight and surveillance during numerous cable installation projects including large HVDC interconnection projects such as Western Link, BritNed and more recently IFA2.
Gary has extensive knowledge of safe operations and routinely participates in pre-operational risk control events and incident reviews, and the detailed review of contractors' procedures and documentation. As Operations Manager, he is responsible for engaging with, implementing and managing our consultants appointed offshore and on-site, often across a large number of projects simultaneously, ranging in size and requirements.
Within the Operations Manager role, Gary maintains the Quality, Health and Environmental system (QHSE) that facilitates meeting objectives and enables continual improvement in the effectiveness and performance of the Company's management of risk to its business, and by extension to the business of our clients.
