“I learned from an early age that senior people have to spend time with their staff and customers not only to understand their wishes and desires, but also to share experiences. In the case of our customers the key is to give the customer what he or she wants, not to provide a system because you think it is the right solution.”

Peter Callaghan, CEO of Marshall Land Systems, a subsidiary of Marshall of Cambridge (Holdings) Limited.
“I found a somewhat unconnected and expensive Company that was not listening to its customers. Thus my first job was to reposition the management to discover what the customer wanted rather than force them to accept a design or system they did not require. My next job was to streamline the workforce, bring in Project Managers and reduce costs. The next stage was to divide, what was then a disparate group of capabilities, into managed segments.”
