Interim Engineering Manager
January 2007 -
Tetley at a difficult time following a period of considerable change
with a loss of local knowledge and with the prospect of further
reorganisation to come. John's relaxed & positive attitude, leading by
example, immediately won him friends at all levels of the organisation.

colleagues & workforce. This enabled him to do more than merely keep
things running as it allowed him to set a good foundation of progress
for his replacement to follow."

Engineering Manager of this large manufacturing site (700+ people in

industry, his empowering management style really 'steadied the ship'
during a difficult transitional phase. I would have no hesitation in

financially driven and controlled his costs and explained variances and
also provided future spend expectations. John will certainly be a
valuable asset to any future employer."
