New director strengthens engineering team
We are delighted to announce that Jonathan Morton has been promoted to the position of engineering director. His appointment strengthens the company's management structure at a time of high growth and demonstrates our commitment to career development for our staff.
Jonathan has 30 years of industry experience including 20 years in the life science market. He started his career as an apprentice, obtaining an OND and HNC in Building Services Engineering before completing his degree in the same subject.
The new director has been with the company since 2004, when he joined as a senior HVAC designer. In 2009, Jonathan progressed to the role of project manager, where he delivered many successful projects for blue chip pharmaceutical clients. More recently, he was promoted to the role of design manager for a multi service term contract for a major client, where he excelled in leadership and management.
“I joined BES in 2004, when the company was made up of just nine people,” explained Morton. “The company is now 120 strong and I’m excited to be involved in helping the company to growth further and reach new heights.
“There are fantastic opportunities for progression at BES and my promotion is testament to the company’s commitment to career development and internal promotion. Apprentices and junior designers at the company can move up and across into new roles and build successful careers.”
“The company has experienced significant growth in the last three years, during which turnover has trebled,” explained Steve Marsh, managing director at Boulting Environmental Services.
“Jonathan’s leadership and management skills have shone through during his time as design manager and his appointment further strengthens our management structure. This will help us continue to ensure that we provide a high service for all of our clients,” concluded Marsh.
Outside of work, Jonathan enjoys running marathons and has completed 26 so far. He also takes part in ultramarathons, finishing his first in 2016.
