Fulcrum continues succession strategy with promotion of Tom Overfield to Operations Director
Fulcrum, the leading independent net-zero focused multi-utility infrastructure and services provider, has promoted Tom Overfield to the position of Operations Director as part of its internal succession and progression strategy.
A Chartered health and safety professional with extensive experience in the utility and energy sector, Tom has been with Fulcrum since 2021, joining as Area Contracts Manager for the South West, followed by Head of Operations for the South of England, before taking on this national role.
Tom will be focused on maintaining and building upon Fulcrum’s strong reputation for the delivery of complex multi-utility projects across the housebuilding and Industrial & Commercial sectors, working in close collaboration with its customers.
He began his career in the utilities sector at 16 as an apprentice with Morrison Utility Services before transferring onto a leadership apprenticeship with Transco, which he completed when he was 24.
Tom became one of the business’ first engineers to move from a direct engineering role to become a safety advisor, which led to him securing a position with Amec, which included a place on its management leadership programme and becoming a Chartered safety advisor.
During his diverse career in utilities, he has been involved in a number of high-profile projects including the Hinkley Point nuclear power station and the Severn Wye cable tunnels, which carries high voltage electricity lines beneath the rivers.
Tom Overfield said: “Fulcrum has been extremely supportive of my continued career progression and I’m very proud to take on this important national position. The company has a strong identity in the utilities sector based on its reputation for delivering projects to the highest standard and building close and collaborative relationships with customers and our supply chain. I am keen to ensure this continues as well secure more new projects across the utilities industry.”
Stuart Crossman, chief operating officer, said: “Tom is an example of the driven and highly talented people we are able to attract to Fulcrum, who are then given the opportunity to develop their careers further and play a significant part in our operations and future growth. His expertise has already been of great benefit to the business and in his new role he will be fundamental to the delivery of our pipeline of national projects.”
