Continued Growth and a Confident Future Lead to a New Appointment
PROjEN, a specialist engineering project management company, based in Preston Brook, Cheshire has recently recruited Simon Forshaw as their Head of Projects.
Simon joins PROjEN from James Fisher & Sons Ltd with a successful track record of delivering outstanding results. In his most recent position as Commercial Director he was responsible for the strategic and operational leadership of James Fisher’s Strategic Asset Management Business Unit, building relationships with blue chip organisations globally. In addition he also had functional leadership for the major projects business, developing and delivering long term sustainable revenues in engineering, procurement, construction and management (EPCM) projects.
Prior working at James Fisher, Simon worked for Siemens UK and had responsibility for a portfolio of major projects in Siemens Industrial Projects and Services business, with particular experience in Renewable Energy and Biogas. Simon is a Chartered Engineer, a Fellow of the Institute of Engineering and Technology and gained his BEng from the University of Salford.
PROjEN has a diverse client base which includes a substantial number of large blue chip organisations. The company’s record for client retention is exceptional and by ensuring that client expectations are exceeded and company standards are maintained Simon will help to reinforce PROjEN’s market position. Simon comments;
“PROjEN is undertaking a critical role on behalf of their clients and I feel privileged to be asked to lead operations and very excited about the opportunity. PROjEN has much to be proud about in its achievements so far, yet there remains opportunity for operational improvements that will further differentiate the business in the market and underpin the relationships with key clients. PROjEN’s business model, to develop close strategic relationships with their customers sits well with my own business ethos and approach and I look forward to building on the important relationships with our customers and stakeholders who have an important role in PROjEN’s future success”.
PROjEN has enjoyed consistent growth to the extent that both sales and personnel numbers have trebled over the last five years. Moving offices in October last year to 50% larger premises in Preston Brook has allowed PROjEN to provide a superior working environment and scope for further anticipated growth.
PROjEN’s Managing Director, Martin Seabrook comments:
“These are exciting times for us – the success and growth of PROjEN is a result of the company successfully continuing to grow within its expanding markets but also reflects the determination, expertise and professionalism of its staff. We welcome Simon Forshaw to PROjEN at this exciting time and look forward to his seeing contribution to the ongoing success of the company”.
