With a first degree in Physics, Rob also holds a Masters Degree in Process Safety and Loss Prevention. Rob was Managing Director of an environmental technology spin off from a major nuclear corporation before moving into the waste management services sector, where he had some six years experience as the General Manager of a growing hazardous waste business.
Rob joined OSRL in 2003 and has been a key part of the rapid growth of its preparedness and response services. He was instrumental in establishing a rigorous approach to recruitment and putting in place new competence-based training programmes. He has overseen OSRL’s responses to major oil spills, such as the Tasman Spirit, Macondo and Bonga incidents.
