After spending the last 12 months supporting NATO in Sicily, Geoff is delighted to be joining VIMA Group to establish and grow a new Cyber Assurance Management capability. He brings with him an enthusiastic, energetic, innovative and resourceful style with an extensive experience in MOD ICT systems, having spent the last 34 years working within the defence sector.
Throughout his career, the first 18 of these as a CIS Engineering Officer with the Royal Air Force and the last 16 as a technical consultant and director of operations, he has been immersed in project management; MOD infrastructure installations & operations; site & facilities maintenance and technical staff leadership. He has a robust commercial and financial knowledge and thrives on applying professional engineering practices to adapt, analyse and use vision to solve complex management issues.
Away from work, Geoff enjoys his 7-year-old twins and when given time likes to play cricket, tennis and 5-a-side football. He loves live music events, although the twins have kept him far too busy in recent years. Still, he has hopes to introduce them to skiing next season in his favourite ski country of Austria.
“With his extensive experience in Cyber Assurance Management in the built environment, I am delighted to welcome Geoff into VIMA Group. Cyber forms 25% of VIMA’s current business, and I’m looking forward to working with Geoff in further growing this important area of capability for VIMA and our clients.”Dean Taylor, CEO of VIMA Group
