Keith is a retired Chartered Civil Engineer with over thirty years’ experience working for local government and for an international firm of consulting engineers. He has been involved in all aspects of contract management, including procurement and financial control, quality control and project management of construction contracts in the transport and regeneration sectors.

Keith became involved with Sheffield Renewables as a volunteer with the hydro team working on the Jordan Dam scheme. This enabled him to use his engineering and contract experience in the service of a community run enterprise, and provided an opportunity to play an active role in developing local alternative sources of renewable energy.

His other interests are walking, music, railways, films and entertaining his grandchildren. He has also sung with the Sheffield Philharmonic Chorus for over twenty years and is a volunteer ranger with the Peak District National Park Ranger Service.
