Commercial Director, Custom Manufacture
After joining Thomas Swan in 2009, I managed the technical functions across all of our three business Divisions - before being appointed as Commercial Director for Custom Manufacture.
This is a highly bespoke service and my role involves building strong and lasting relationships - so we, and the companies we supply, can respond to evolving market requirements. I work closely with all of our customers, whatever their size or requirements, and whether it’s a one-off job or a regular production requirement. This enables us to ensure that their projects are delivered with the highest standards of service, confidentiality and expertise. My goal is to tailor the flexibility and manufacturing capability of the Division to meet changing customer requirements and to supply every project on budget and on time.
After gaining my doctorate in Organic Chemistry from the University of Salford in 1995, I worked for contract research and manufacturing organisations serving the fine chemicals and pharmaceutical sectors for fourteen years, prior to joining Thomas Swan. This has given me a depth of experience, insight and specialist expertise which has, I believe, often proved to be invaluable to our customers.
