G4C Future Leader
Position held: Senior Cost Manager
Having graduated in 2013 with 1st class honours in Quantity Surveying, Tom became chartered with RICS in November 2015 and now himself mentor’s colleagues through the process. As a founding member of Turner and Townsend's ‘Addressing the Balance Forum’ aimed at encouraging industry to be reflective on the society we live in, Tom believes that diversity drives improved business performance and is passionate about tackling industry wide gender imbalances to improve collaboration, innovation and to bridge the skills-gap.
Tom has also supported some of the UK’s largest infrastructure providers and managed the industry leading Performance Assurance process on Crossrail. He is currently a Commercial Manager at HS2 and although it was clear from the start that this would be a challenging project, he set out to ensure that a positive, collaborative environment was developed to enable the wider team to focus on achieving their objectives which included engaging in social activities and encouraging the take up of co-location with the contractor. As a result, the team has been able to work collaboratively to demonstrate value for money and deliver on time to maintain key programme milestones.
The winner of the G4C Future Leader award will be announced at the Constructing Excellence SECBE Awards on the 28th of June at the Royal Lancaster London. For more information and to book tickets, click here.
