My Background Details
Stuart has 35 years’ experience in engineering and programme/change management. He has built and led highly skilled/multi-cultural teams ranging from small-cell teams up to 2,000+ global teams across the world (USA, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Israel, India, South Korea, China and Australia).

A 20+ year veteran in the digital Broadcast Technology, Media & Security industry, Stuart has led global programmes and business initiatives working at the VP/CXO level and successfully delivered complex technology, business transformation and turn-around programmes in that time.

Key to scaling the programs and associated teams, Stuart has driven governance within the business in terms of adopting common codes of practice (processes and methodologies) across globally distributed functions.

Drawing on his industry knowledge, big-picture thinking, strong system-level expertise and people leadership skills, Stuart thrives on “getting the job done”.

Prior to this, he spent 13 years working in the UK Defence industry on various avionic, fire control and sub-surface autonomous weapons programmes, specialising in Radar and Electronic Countermeasures (ECM and ECCM).

Stuart has an MSc. in Communications Systems Engineering from the University of Portsmouth and has studied Executive Education at Stanford University.
Current Role Details
After a successful and rewarding career working for large multinational companies (Cisco International and NDS), Stuart, along with his Co-Founder, formed Ternion Services in 2017 with the aim of advising their clients in the area of program governance and execution, systems integration management and organisational accessment (aligning vison, strategy and organisational structure).

We have clients in the US and Europe who have engaged us to advise on and execute programs of work in the USA, UK, France, Dubai and Australia.

Would be great to add value to HiveMind members and looking forward to working with you.
