Andy Brierley - Framework Technical Director (Utility)

Andy was the driving force behind Lanes’ successful tender for the tier 1 Thames Water (TW) wastewater framework contract.

He controlled the 18-month intensive procurement process that ensured Lanes was the ‘right fit’ with Thames Waters objectives, its stakeholder and management team, and that outcomes were aligned with those set by regulator, OFWAT. 

Subsequently, he managed the intensive 16-week mobilisation period driving a transparent collaborative approach with one simple objective: to get it right. That contract, and Lanes' execution of it to date, has established the Group as a pioneering utility provider.

During a long career with Lanes, as Andy joined the company back in 1993, he has been a regional manager, sales development director and director responsible for sewer rehabilitation, giving him a broad understanding of sectors including, insurance, nuclear, petrochemical, and rail, having been instrumental in the successful bid for a performance-based London Underground Contract.

Andy is committed to delivering outstanding customer service and has championed the development of application-based software to keep customers informed during every aspect of their Lanes' journey.

Based on this customer focus, Andy has been the prime mover in creating award-winning IT platforms, field-based training programmes and processes that are intuitive for users whilst providing automated and sophisticated reporting functions.
