Fulcrum has announced the appointment of multi-utility specialist Steve Parker as its new Head of Operations (North).
In his new role, Steve will be responsible for Fulcrum’s site operations across the North of England and the Midlands.
Steve brings extensive experience of managing UK-wide multi-utility infrastructure projects in the housing, commercial and industrial sectors.
With a particular expertise in driving innovation in utility installations and project management, through the application of new technology, Steve will support the expansion of Fulcrum’s capabilities and reinforce its industry trusted position.
Steve began his career in utilities working on projects in the water sector for organisations including United Utilities and Scottish Water, alongside contractors such as Amey, Enterprise and Balfour Beatty.
Having moved to Enterprise as a Project Manager working on a National Grid contract, Steve then developed his knowledge and experience of the gas sector to become Contracts Manager of the National Grid and Enterprise “Coalition” which delivered £50m a year turnover through gas mains replacement, reinforcement and diversions whilst also undertaking domestic gas service renewals and new supply installations.
Prior to joining Fulcrum, Steve was Framework Delivery Manager with Energy Assets Utilities, formerly Future Utility Solutions, where he was responsible for more than a thousand ‘live’ residential development, industrial and commercial sites, requiring a gas, electricity, or a full multi-utility supply.
Steve Parker said: “Fulcrum has established itself as a major player in the multi-utility infrastructure market, having built a reputation for quality service delivery and customer support. It has the potential to grow its market position further and I am keen to play a positive role to achieve that target through close collaboration with site developers that are looking to have confidence and trust in their utilities infrastructure provider.”
Terry Dugdale, Chief Operating Officer at Fulcrum, said: “I’ve previously worked alongside Steve before and know the experience and expertise that Steve will bring to Fulcrum. Steve is highly respected and regarded in the industry and will support our drive to become the utility provider of choice for our customers through the focused and expert management of our projects across the North and Midlands regions.”
