Ben Hooper

Programme and project manager C-UAS, Heathrow Airport Limited 

Ben is a chartered mechanical engineer who has worked in the subsea oil and gas sector for over a decade on five continents. He then switched sectors to experience another ‘mega project,’ albeit a much smaller one, at Heathrow Expansion. Ben stumbled into research and development during a foray into the genuine ‘aerospace’ part of Heathrow with OSL and other partners and the UAS project which won APM’s Technology and Overall project of the year categories at the 2020 Project Management Awards.  

More recently, he has leveraged these skills into the Space sector making sensors for Spacecraft. 

Ben is passionate about efficient workstreams, the carbon neutral goal, the edge of technology and pushing the boundaries. He also claims to enjoy anything that goes fast (projects, machines, people...anything!).
