A former Major General in the British Army, John retired in 1999 as Commander UK Land Forces. Since then he has followed a Board-level business career in the construction, infrastructure and IT sectors; this included four years as the Head of Corporate Affairs, Marketing and Communications for the Lend Lease European construction business, and three years as the MD of British Telecom’s National Government division.
He currently chairs companies in the Construction and Charity sectors and as an Associate Director of Lend Lease Construction (UK), advises on the UK Government’s infrastructure construction strategy. As head of Strategic Development within Dassault Systemes, John uses his extensive multi-disciplined experience to develop engagements and understanding across the EuroNorth portfolio, growing market penetration and diversification.
In his position as a Patron of the Lean Construction Institute of Australasia (LCIA), it is John’s intention to raise the profile of the organisation within the global construction industry and its supply chains. He is promoting the principles and values of the lean construction approach to help create an Industry which is noted for value and efficiency, and able to be a fundamental part of the Industry of the Future as defined by Industry 4.0, embracing digitisation and automation wherever practical and appropriate.
In so doing, he routinely advises the Board of LCIA on its strategic direction
