Graham Stewart

Overseas brief

Graeme Stewart's advice for avoiding disruption on the marine vapour recovery project in Scotland was 'talk early, negotiate early and set strategies early'. Stewart saved ú5M and built successful alliances with the project's 25 local and national interest groups, including the Scottish Fine Arts Society, which were concerned with the colour of the structure. His management team consisted of two and half people.

Stewart said that the most rewarding thing was the enjoyment everyone got out of the work while delivering on time, within budget and without major disruptions.

The judges choose Stewart as Manager of the Year citing his 'likeable nature and obvious skill for managing people' making him 'stand out as someone who anyone would want to work for'.
