Greg Matthews Mechanical engineer, Biker & car enthusiast

Overview

A professional engineer and motoring enthusiast, I have an eye for detail and a passion for all things automotive. I thrive on finding smart solutions in challenging situations and take great pride in my own work and that of others. My career to date working within the offshore renewables and oil and gas markets have equipped me with the ability to deliver work under tight budgetary and schedule constraints and I feel like I work well under pressure. Open and inclusive, I am comfortable and experienced in leading a team and I feel that the best solutions come when all members of a team are involved and encouraged to think proactively. I'm a great communicator and am confident dealing with people of all backgrounds from apprentices to senior management.

My real passion is cars and motorcycles and it was this that led to me completing a Bachelors degree in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering. Much of my free time is spent modifying, maintaining, cleaning and enjoying my vehicles and when the weather or time doesn't allow you'll find me reading about them or planning my dream garage. Logical thinking is my strong point and most of my maintenance skills are self taught but I decided to broaden my knowledge last year and attended college night classes learning car body repair.

  • Confident in understanding, reviewing and analysing technical information
  • Proven ability to interact and communicate with a broad range of personnel

Hobbies and interests

Apart from my previously confessed love of cars and bikes I also like to push myself physically, playing football weekly, getting out on my mountain bike when I can and participating in snow sports during the winter. I have also completed a number of challenge type events including Tough Mudder and Scotland Coast to Coast. In my spare time I enjoy traveling both around Scotland and further afield.
