Over the course of the last year we have undergone various changes at Corniche. We changed our logo, corporate identity and the livery on our fleet of vehicles; launching a new, more dynamic branding that better reflects our business. And there have been a number of changes to our team members, as well.
In April Darren Whenham joined us as our Operations Manager. He has undertaken a business review and put in place new processes and work streams to enable us to operate more efficiently as we manage our growth. We said goodbye to Rachel McHugh and we welcomed Pip Grindley. Pip, previously with Armfield Construction, has a wealth of experience in bid management and preparation and has taken over responsibility for business development.
We said goodbye to Ian Maynard who has gone on to start his own venture and welcomed Gary Richardson who has quickly settled in to the ‘Corniche way’. Karl Whyte has joined us in the capacity of Construction Manager. Bringing extensive experience of Site Management he is currently mentoring our existing Construction Team. Regrettably, we said goodbye to Neil Kelly, who had worked with us since 2005. We really do wish him well.
There have also been changes in staff development, with some great personal achievements and a raft of NVQs. Anna Bataille, already level 4 in Health & Safety, now has a TechIOSH. Kamil Michalowski attained level 4 in Site Management and so too did Scott Walker. Many congratulations to them all.
Everything changes over time and change is inevitable as a business grows and evolves. Managing change is key and we are confident that we’ve successfully recruited excellent new additions including working mentors, managers and operatives to help take us forwards. But one thing won’t change at Corniche, our dedication to quality and standards and our commitment to building relationships.
