With over 30 years global experience covering engineering design, operations, projects, business development, commercial management, audit, strategic asset evaluation and handover management, Trevor combines an unusually broad exposure with his pragmatic approach to overcoming many business challenges.
After graduating in Chemical Engineering in 1984, Trevor initially spent 3 years in the UK and USA setting up computer design and cost software for a process equipment manufacturer. He then joined a European energy major where technical roles in engineering and operations transitioned into business development and commercial management supported by a part time MBA completed in 1991 before a series of international assignments. These have covered France, Qatar, Indonesia and Nigeria with many shorter assignments across South America, Europe and Asia.
Highlights have included setting up and leading a terminal asset management team in Ras Laffan, Qatar to manage a $5 billion asset, developing integrated company management systems, managing a $1 billion asset handover and negotiating multiple third party access and product sales agreements.
His efforts were twice recognised by international innovation awards.
Trevor took an early retirement option in 2018 to explore new opportunities, and joined Newman Eventus after a three-month role as a South Pole expedition manager.
