I have an honours degree in Civil and Structural Engineering and for the past 25 years have specialised in quality management on major infrastructure projects.

Working for both client and multi-national contractor organisations, I have successfully led multi-disciplinary teams to develop and implement compliant quality assurance and self-certification systems on a wide range of major projects including: Crossrail, East London Line, Channel Tunnel Rail Link and the Jubilee Line Extension.

I am recognised as an expert on quality management within the construction and related supply chain industries, notably for the implementation of the Progressive Assurance and Self-certification models within the major project environment.

I am a Fellow of the Chartered Quality Institute and a Member of the Institute of Collaborative Working.

I am an Associate Member of the Academy of Experts : an organisation which provides a source of accredited Expert Witnesses & Mediators who are governed by codes of practice and disciplinary procedures.

I have successfully completed the Academy's Foundation Course and am establishing a service to provide expert witness services for construction related cases.

I was a leading member of the Tideway Quality Alliance Team which was nominated as one of the 4 finalist of the Chartered Quality Institute World Quality Team of the Year Award 2019. I am an active member of the Steering Group of the Chartered Quality Institute Construction Special Interest Group (ConSIG).

“Jon was a founder member of the CQI Construction Special Interest Group which grew out of the Crossrail project and has expanded the scope of activity from competence development to engagement with allied professional bodies”
