John Griffin was formerly operations director for the new nuclear build programme at consulting engineer Jacobs.
At BakerHicks, his job is to expand and diversify the company’s nuclear and defence capabilities, client base and projects. He joined Jacobs in 2006 from NNC, which was by then Amec NNC, where he developed a major client base in Defence.
John Griffin said: “My first task will be to assess our current strengths, and match those strengths to the needs of our clients. For example, some of the specialist CAD and configuration management capabilities, and our expertise in BIM to help reduce running costs at government-owned sites, are skills that readily apply to both the nuclear and defence industries, and can immediately be offered to existing and potential clients.”
Managing director Martin Lubieniecki added: “BakerHicks’ nuclear and defence team has a long and successful track record that is widely respected in the industry. We are trusted to safely deliver projects in highly secure, regulated environments through a genuinely integrated service. John’s appointment reflects our commitment to a sector that continues to provide exciting opportunities for growth, and which can benefit from a truly multi-disciplinary approach.”
