Optimum Group are delighted to share the changes that have been underway as part of our fire-stopping team restructure. We have recently secured some great projects with clients, both old and new, and are excited to deliver them with a fresh and talented Firestopping team. We have a new leadership structure, promoted from an established and experienced management team, and added some exceptional new talent to create a department that can provide a reliable, professional and valuable service
First and foremost, we are thrilled to have established Optimum team member, Laura Weston, heading up the department as Business Leader and together with Ian Morris, as Contracts Manager, they will be overseeing all projects, client relations and operations together. Ian has been with Optimum Fire Stopping since its inception, helping to get the department to where it is today. Laura started her career with Optimum as a trainee QS over 18 years ago, and has successfully risen through the hierarchy to reach this pivotal management role.
We also have Will Britton joining the team as Assistant Fire Stopping Manager following his previous involvement in and around the department and company. He is looking forward to a permanent role after recently completing his Firas training and is pursuing a HNC in construction and the built environment.
Our new recruits include Alex Ivanov as Fire Stopping Manager, who joins us with over 10 years of industry experience, with a large part of this spent in London. He brings in-depth installation and product knowledge to the team and we are really pleased to have him. Welcome aboard Alex
We also have a new Trainee Quantity Surveyor & Manager, Eve Boniface, who started her journey with Optimum in May, and has been assisting Laura Weston with all aspects of the Fire Stopping Department’s processes, procedures and commercials.
To conclude the appointments, Tom Evans has joined us as a trainee fire stopper based on site working along with George Davies.
Our new Fire Stopping team also held their first meeting in our Bristol office recently to discuss the department restructure, new/existing projects as well as innovative ideas for the future. Exciting opportunities ahead with new clients on the horizon.
