Meet the AMI team

Meet the team!

We would like to take the opportunity to introduce some of our management team members over the coming weeks

Our apprentice engineer Ollie has been a great addition to the team. He is hardworking and is showing us how the next generation does things!

With a keen eye on his engineering and organisation skills, he is proving to be a fantastic investment to AMI Marine.

One small problem with young strapping men like these is that they do strange things like going out to the pub on a work night while enjoying sleeping in a smelly tent at a music festival – live and let live!

Job title

Apprentice Engineer

What’s the best part of your job?

Anytime I get to go on installs or APT’s, hands-on learning is the best part of my apprenticeship.

When was the last time you went to sea?

Back in May for an install on a local ferry. I fitted X-VHFR and the all-new XMDR with CCTV.

What do you do on your day off?

Socialising with friends at the pub and I enjoy playing football.

What’s left on your bucket list?

More travel and skydiving

Favourite dinner?

Steak, mash, and vegetables

 

 

Lucy is the loud one on the team, luckily, she’s only in 3 days of the week, otherwise, most of the team would be suffering from headaches!! Lucy’s main job is social media, database input, and website content, although we think she just spends all day making pretty pictures and planning difficult team-building charity events! Lucy is the one who sent some of her colleagues on the ’24 Peaks Challenge’ in 2018. They all survived …. but maybe more careful about volunteering in the future!

Job title

Marketing Manager

What’s the best part of your job?

Being free with creative thinking, designing images, adverts, and coming up with some crazy ideas!

When was the last time you went to sea?

I am absolutely petrified of the sea! As a child, I was forced to go on the Isle of White ferry to visit my Grandmother – Traumatic!!

Most annoying office/work habits?

Being very very loud (includes singing…a lot)!!!

Favourite dinner?

My Mum’s lasagna and salad!

Robin is our longest standing team member and a core part of AMI. He has trained hundreds of engineers over the years, luckily his Scottish accent has been tainted by years of living on the south coast of England so the engineers can understand him! If you are looking for a story from the Navy days, then Rob is your man!

Job Title

Senior Technical Manager

When was the last time you went to sea?

1998 HMS Glasgow

Most annoying office/work habits?

Finishing of the cakes/biscuits.

How would your colleagues describe you?

The grumpy old man.

What do you do on your day off?

As little as possible

Our dedicated Sales Support Manager Lauren has revolutionised our sales procedures! Bringing her organisational and unquestionable work ethic to benefit the whole company, she is also the quietest member of the team – she doesn’t talk less; we just can’t hear her when she does – ‘Lauren the whisperer’!

Lauren is always up for a challenge and brings her “fitness guru knowledge” to a very reluctant and slightly less athletic team!

Job title

Sales Support Manager

Winning orders that we have been working on for a long time!

Trying to convert my colleagues to becoming vegetarian/vegan!

What’s left on your bucket list?

Walk the Great Wall of China, Skydiving, return to India with my children….to name a few?

 

Paul is our Software Engineer who sits behind 5 screens and no-one really understands exactly what he does…. His understanding of code enables him to make machines talk to each other!

Other than code wizarding Paul is one of the quietest members of the team, this doesn’t mean he’s not listening… His one-liners and amazing general knowledge are always on hand to help us all out and keep us smiling!

Job title

Software Engineer

What’s the best part of your job?

Those days when I leave the office at the end of the day knowing the software is of higher quality than at the start of the day.

January 2019 – part of a team fitting an X-MDR on a local ferry (if Southampton Water counts as at sea?)

I rarely, if ever, answer the telephone

What’s left on your bucket list?

See the Northern Lights, snorkel with Manta Rays and/or a Whale Shark are top of a long list

 

Cheryl is a central cog in the machine that is AMI – she ensures all our orders leave on time! She also knows how to crack a whip when needed and keeps the whole team laughing with her playful personality and her horrendous geography… for someone who coordinates logistics all day, it’s sometimes a little worrying!!!

Job title

Operations Manager

When was the last time you went to sea?

Went on vessels during Seaworks Show

Most annoying office/work habits?

The warehouse team would probably say obsessed with organisation and tidiness.

What do you do on your day off?

Spend time with my children
