Stephen B Coles BSc, MSc, CEng, MIET, CQP FCQI, FRSA

Graduating in 1974 with a BSc in Materials Science from Bath University, I joined Rolls Royce as a Project Engineer in their Advanced Manufacturing Department.  In 1979, I moved to Scotland, joining Halliburton Manufacturing and Services Limited as Engineering Specialist (Quality Assurance), before setting up SBC Consultants Limited in 1987.

I gained my MSc in Quality Management from Aberdeen University in 1999 and am a CQI Chartered Quality Professional.

I've provided QHSE consultancy work to, and led audits on, a wide range of organisations including oil companies, helicopter and marine operators, steel mills, manpower agencies, offshore installations and rigs, diving contractors, offshore and onshore drilling contractors, engineering and project management contractors, warehousing and logistics companies, fabricators, maintenance services, and a wide range of manufacturing and specialist service suppliers.  I also support students studying for the CQI Diploma in Quality Management, principally through North East Scotland College.

A Fellow of the Chartered Quality Institute and Chartered Quality Professional, I've served on a number of Institute bodies and was Chair of the Advisory Council from 2010 to 2014.  I'm also a Chartered Engineer and Member of the IET, a Senior Member of the ASQ and a Fellow of the RSA.
