“I am looking forward to getting started at Svella Connect and hearing about everyone’s work, ideas and what they believe will help make our company an even better place to work,” explained Stephen.
“I think a great deal of the people and the organisations I have worked with and I have already recognised many of the same values here, I see great people who want to make a difference. My role will be as a coach, mentor and collaborator so it matters to me that Svella Connect is a place where everyone has a voice and feels valued and respected.”
Gavin Davies, Svella Connect Managing Director, said: “Stephen will be the main point of contact for strategic HSE requirements for our core project teams, clients, stakeholders, company insurers and enforcing authorities.
