Chief Operating Officer at Clyde Space
I’m responsible for all the key functions of Clyde Space and the activity of the company from product development, manufacturing through to business development and customer service, whilst supporting our CEO to deliver our strategic plan.
I graduated from The University of Strathclyde with a degree in Manufacturing Engineering and Management (BEng. Hons) and I then went on the qualify as a Chartered Engineering (CEng.) To supplement my technical qualification, I then completed an MBA in 2003 also from University of Strathclyde. Most recently in 2013 I was awarded the status of Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and technology, (FIET). I have over 20 years of experience in manufacturing technical organisations from around the world. This experience ranges from the medical, electronics, telecommunications to the space industry.
Both of my grandfathers were engineers and I was inspired to become an engineer from a very young age. There was a slight toss-up between engineering and architecture for a while at school, however there were some great women in engineering campaigns running around the time, similar to #ILookLikeAnEngineer, which reignited my enthusiasm for engineering and I would be delighted if this blog did the same for someone else!
