Joe’s first role in transport was in 2012 at the London Olympics Torch Relay. That was closely followed by working on the actual Games. He also worked on the 2014 Winter Olympics in Russia where he was Fleet Manager.
Joe first worked with FTS as a Deputy Bus System Manager at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games. He’s also been the Bus System Manager at the 2015 Rugby World Cup. After finishing this role Joe joined FTS as a permanent fixture in the role of an Operations Manager on the Great Western Railway rail replacement contract.
Project managing the transport solution for the 2018 Glasgow European Championships was a highlight for Joe, from helping to map out the initial transportation strategy, through to delivering and co-ordinating over 70 vehicles and 60 ground staff each day throughout the event.
It was critical to ensure that athletes, families, officials and media had a fast and efficient event transport experience. They did!
Joe is currently engaged with the Olympics in Japan via project experts, Blacc, who are advising on transport provision and management. This is a near two-year assignment where he is based full time in Tokyo, consulting on the driver training programme and the planning of player and media transport between the athletes’ village, accommodation sites and venues.
