He has worked in offshore wind for over 13 years, across Europe, Asia, and the US in roles varying from Project Director to site investigation specialist.

Will’s remit is to grow the renewables arm within AqualisBraemarLOC to achieve the stated ambitions of 50% of revenue by 2025. To this aim, Will has a strong focus on both organic and inorganic growth. In 2018, Will pioneered and established the OWC Taiwan office; which is now OWC’s second-largest entity.
