In fact, learning and growth are the most important factors in his career, Amanpreet says, and these are values that he also sees reflected in his current employer. “At Linxon, we have ample opportunity to learn with top talent, an excellent team and great leadership,” he underlines. He joined Linxon around a year ago and is responsible for bid management of high-value tenders for the EMEA, UK and Ireland region – with a focus on the renewable sector and technologies like full turnkey offshore wind farms.
“Every offshore wind opportunity is bespoke, and technology is developing dynamically. This industry certainly needs flexibility of thought and openness to learning,” says Amanpreet, who is working on a process for the offshore wind team following the basic principle of ‘stay lean, go fast’. “I’ve witnessed very good collaboration within Linxon and fantastic enthusiasm to grow, which ultimately grows the business. Linxon’s focus on safety, integrity and sharing common goals of carbon neutrality with our clients is making all the difference as well.”
What else attracted him to the company? “I see that Linxon is uniquely positioned in the market by being a new face, yet with a strong background and years of experience in the T&D sector,” he says. “I’m also convinced that our success comes from trust and appreciation of our colleagues.”
He reflects this appreciation in his own leadership style, which is influenced by John Maxwell’s statement: “Leaders become great, not because of their power, but because of their ability to empower others.” Amanpreet follows a teamwork approach and believes that trusting your team is the key to any successful business. “In my previous role, I managed to secure some utilities business for Linxon with our key client on the same principles of collaboration within the team and the client,” he adds.
