In January 2013 I re-joined old friends in Glasgow at James Fisher Defence as a senior engineer. Although based in Glasgow, I travelled far and wide, my favourite gig being Sweden for the best part of 3 years. From 1997 and the LR5 project to the present day, I have worked with JFD on a wide variety of projects. My able graduate assistant in 1997 was Ben Sharples who eventually became the MD of James Fisher Defence. Ben moved to Malin Group in 2018 and the key members of his old team joined him a few years later.
