Cliff has been working in the construction industry for nearly 40 years.
Cliff started as a draughtsman for consultants Sir Frederick Snow & Partners in London before moving into the roofing, waterproofing and insulation sector.
During this period, he has worked for insulation manufacturers Vencel Resil Ltd, where he used his experience in engineering drawing, to manage the internal drawing office which was instrumental in establishing the ‘tapered roofing concept’ so widely used today. Cliff then spent five thoroughly enjoyable years at Coolag Purlboard, part of the Tarmac Group later purchased by Kingspan, working his way up the management ladder in a variety of technical sales and managerial roles.
In 1991 Cliff joined Stirling Lloyd who are a British manufacturing business specialising in a wide range of waterproofing and repair products. This move provided diversity in the building, civil engineering and highways infrastructure sectors where continued success resulted in an invitation to become a main board director in 2003. The strong profitable growth of Stirling Lloyd culminated in the company being acquired in 2017 by GCP Applied Technologies, for whom Cliff continues to manage the UK Stirling Lloyd business.
During his career, Cliff has worked on some of this country’s most outstanding engineering and construction projects including St Pancras Station, Heathrow T5, Channel Tunnel Rail Link, East London Line, 2012 Olympic Stadium, Queensferry Bridge and more recently HS2
