- Case Studies
Allan began his career with an apprenticeship in Mechanical Engineering and this lead to project management, which he enjoyed. He worked for Nuaire for eight years as a Contracts Manager before moving to a French ventilation company where he worked for three years. After this he created SCS.
At the helm of the SCS ship, Allan is mainly responsible for the strategy of the business. He also plays a major part in new product and market development and enjoys starting new ventures. Allan knows the importance of cultivating healthy business relationships with clients and is always eager to meet up with customers to discuss any issues and improve the way SCS works.
Allan is proud of his staff and takes great pleasure in seeing people develop. He explained: “People tend to stay for a long time and it’s almost like another family.”
In his spare time, Allan enjoys boxing, live music and “playing guitar badly”. He likes to keep fit and recently completed the Paris Marathon, raising cash for CRASH, the construction industry’s charity, along with his SCS colleagues Faye Young – Regional Manager (London and South), Dave Jenkinson – Contracts Manager, and Jason Bennett – BMS Engineer.
Allan is also an avid traveller and likes to get out in the fresh air, regularly taking part in triathlons, climbing mountains and trekking. Ever the adventurer, Allan plans to climb Everest in 2017. We’ll keep you updated on his progress!
