After leaving the Royal Navy in 1996 I first entered the industry as a removal operative, and gradually worked my way up through the industry.
With over twenty years of experience in all levels of middle and upper management , I decided to set up Guardian Environmental.
My business partner and co owner Shaun Davies had also had a similar background to myself, so between us we thought we could bring a different approach to the industry with guardian, which we believe we have achieved with customer satisfaction and care being the main ethos of the company.
Our approach and delivery of the services we offer is we believe a totally different approach to our competitors, with regarding to pricing customer care and job completion.
I have over twenty years experience within the industry at senior management level, I have worked in all fields including surveyor, analyst and project management.
I also believe that customer care and satisfaction is paramount in all of the services Guardian deliver.
At the planning and delivery stage, myself and Guy looked at how our competitors had set up their companies. We streamlined the whole process to suit the way we wished to carry out our business with the Guardian ethos.
My role within Guardian as Operations Director is varied - from the pricing of projects, client meetings, and business development to visiting our sites to carry out internal audits of our systems and procedures.
After completing a university degree I decided to pursue a career within the environmental industry, specialising in Asbestos removal, surveying and analytical as my chosen field.
I have worked on sites for large blue chip companies, and individual property owners with the majority of my work being analytical ie. air tests and clearance.
After deciding to advance my career to a management position, I joined Guardian in the role of contracts manager which entails various duties including client liaison, pricing of works and the day to day job planning and running of the asbestos removal teams.
