REC Ltd Welcomes Chris Wright as Director
After celebrating the opening of a 14th UK office, REC Ltd. warmly welcomes Chris Wright as a director.
Since Concept Life Sciences acquired REC Ltd. in July, REC's ongoing strategic expansion has seen a new managing director welcomed into the fold. Chris Wright will be taking up the position from the 1st September 2014, bringing over 20 years' experience in environmental consultancy to the role.
Throughout his career to date, Wright has provided technical and strategic consultancy to companies all over the world. Renowned as one of the first environmental consultants to operate on a global scale, Wright has worked in over 30 countries and has previously held positions at Arup, URS and Arcadis.
Having worked in ecology, contaminated land assessment, remediation supervisory and due diligence auditing, Wright combines considerable multidisciplinary experience with proven managerial flair. In his previous roles, he has successfully managed consultancy teams, increased profitability and promoted a client-facing approach.
With the focus on client care mirroring REC's long-standing values, Wright is ideally placed to develop the brand beyond its existing 14 UK offices.
Wright has additionally founded his own environmental consultancy which offers services in contaminated land, ecology, environmental impact assessment, air quality consultancy and transactional and due diligence services.
Wright's appointment follows recent expansion in the directorship of the company after Gary Winder took a managing director role in February 2014. As the current chair of the CIWEM Contaminated Land Network, Gary Winder's extensive experience in project management and brownfield sites make him a vital asset as the company continues to expand. Winder is now set to take the company forward as environmental challenges increasingly demand new public and private infrastructures.
Winder said of the appointment:
"I am delighted to announce that Chris will be joining us from September and we are very much looking forward to him working with us during this exciting period of growth for REC."
REC Ltd is a multi-disciplinary environmental consultancy with 14 UK offices.
