My role at CATAGEN is to establish the engineering design team through the implementation of CAD design management by means of part numbering system, revision control, change processes, data management system and so on. To lead design activities for all business areas whilst facilitating continuous improvement and supporting future growth

Name three #hashtags that describe CATAGEN





What was the last programme/ box set you watched on TV?

Recently I’ve been rewatching Friends! 

Name two things you love

My two dogs, Pancake and Stitch! 

Being active – powerlifting, hiking, paddleboarding and sea swimming to name just a few otherwise we’d be here all day! 

What are you looking forward to this year/next year?

Personally, seeing if I can get away with a year of celebrating my 30th birthday… There are several concerts, trips and weddings to look forward to over the next year, it’s very hard to pick one. I am excited to have my first outing as an official British Powerlifting Referee.  

Work-related, looking forward to developing the design team as we continue to grow and implement procedures. I am also starting a Level 5 Certificate in Leadership and Management which will hopefully aid that growth process! 

Why did you choose to be an Engineer?

I tell everyone that I “fell” into engineering, I chose A Level topics that I enjoyed, Art and Design, Technology and Design and Business Studies. At the time, I hadn’t considered going to university. Those topics lead me to Product Design Engineering and eventually Mechanical Engineering.  

If you were not an engineer, what would you be?

When I was younger it was a toss up between being a Barrister or an engineer. Now though, I think if I weren’t an engineer I would be involved in some form of personal training or coaching. I have a keen interest in Psychology, so perhaps some form of counselling.
