Name: George Ballinger
Age: 48 - Can't I lie?
Qualifications: BSc CEng MSc MIStructE
Current job: BW chief engineer, Scotland
Best thing about the job: Creating something really worthwhile for a wide cross section of the public
... and the worst: Unbalanced press headlines when things go wrong.
Anything else? On joining BW six years ago, I took an incognito first ever canal holiday in England to find out how it all worked.
If you were not a civil engineer:
A sailor, love water, live in flat alongside canal with water view from every window.
