Prior to this Mark completed 24 years’ service in the RAF working in locations both in the UK and globally. The experience he has gained from his time in the RAF and Tronox has given him an extensive knowledge of general mechanical engineering coupled with specific knowledge of working on a Top Tier COMAH chemical site.
Mark has spent a great deal of time over the past 4 years working closely with Scunthorpe University Technical College (ENLUTC) in designing their course curriculum with a greater understanding of industry.

Mark remains fully supportive of ENLUTC and committed to developing the pipeline of the next generation of engineers and has recently taken up a position on the ENLUTC board.
