David Grunwell, Regional Divisional Director (Northwest)

"Neil was a "leading light" in establishing the collaborative
working approach epitomised by the CMF community.
Neil recognised and advocated the importance of trust in
taking forward this innovative form of contract.
He instigated and ran the working group looking at establishing
a collaborative culture across the CMF contractors. The excellent
results achieved in the first CMF contracts in terms of
right first time projects delivered on time and
within budget (with no claims) were in no small part down
to the contribution Neil made to establishing a culture
of trust and collaboration across the different disciplines.
It is no coincidence, I think that Neil has not
been part of the second tranche of the CMF contracts
and there has been a significant worsening in the
performance of those contractors compared to the first framework.
Neil is passionate about the benefits to the industry
as a whole of promoting this partnership approach and
this passion comes across clearly when Neil addresses audiences
of his industry peers (including clients) on the subject.
In my experience Neil is also confident and competent
whether dealing with clients such as myself in the
Highways Agency or his peers across the industry,
and is well respected by those who know him.
I believe he is a significant asset to the construction industry. "

Scott Bloxsom, Principal Consultant

"I was fortunate enough to work alongside Neil for
several years within the CM community and I was constantly
impressed with the way he led initiatives and always
delivered an honest and committed approach, never based on self
interest but always in the best interests of the
projects and CM community values.

It is not an understatement to say that Neil
was an inspirational character within that difficult
and challenging construction environment, not just
to me many other colleagues at all levels of business.
Neil has always had the ability to think strategically,
to identify and understand opportunities and define
business goals.

I would have no hesitation in recommending or validating Neils qualities,
both personally and professionally "
