What year did you start your job?
Why did you join Fisher German?
I joined Fisher German because out of all the interviews I had during my final year of university, I came out of the FG one knowing that I would fit into the business and be part of a team that would support me. I also admired the progress the business was making and the shared vision to be the best at what we do, as judged by our clients and colleagues.
What has been your favourite project and why?
My favourite project has been managing the repairs to the Mainline Pipeline due to the variety of landowner/occupiers involved and the team I worked with.
