Andy has 20 years’ experience holding a variety of senior operations and HSEQ positions in businesses supporting the energy sector.
Andy joined SES in January 2012 as UK Operations Manager (North) responsible for managing our operations in Aberdeen, Great Yarmouth, Heysham, and Peterhead. During this period Andy was also instrumental in developing our internal sling manufacturing and inspection capabilities.
Andy later moved into the Group Quality Manager role with the remit of assuring continual improvement through the monitoring of quality performance, ensuring compliance of all newly procured offshore containers and portable tanks, and providing technical support to our global operations teams. Andy is also an expert in root cause analysis and as a qualified senior investigator in Kelvin TOP-SET methodology supports all high-level incident investigations across the business.
Additionally, due to Andy’s in-depth technical knowledge of offshore containers and lifting sets he was a member of the ISO technical committee (ISO/TC67/SC7) tasked with the development of International Standard ISO 10855 “offshore containers and associated lifting sets” and is a member of the Oil & Gas UK workgroup responsible for maintaining the best practice guidance related to the safe packing and handling of cargo to and from offshore locations.
In January 2020 Andy took the opportunity of moving into the exciting new position of Group Sustainability Manager. Although, this position has been created to ensure SES strives to meet all applicable UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through alignment with Swire groups’ SwireTHRIVE strategic framework, Andy’s primary focus is to ensure we meet our commitment of becoming carbon neutral by 2030 through the development of our decarbonisation strategy and implementation of key initiatives across the group. Delivering Carbon neutral by 2030 is in line with one of our core values of continuity and ensuring SES are a sustainable business for the future.
