With the successful bid for a number of important new projects, Bates Smart has appointed four new directors to assist with the growing workload.
Kristen Whittle will bring his strong conceptual design skills to the team, and Lucy Best is focused on forging future strategic initiatives to support good design and high-quality business delivery. Guy Lake is known for his ability to resolve complex and detailed design requirements, which will be put to good use in the company’s new projects. Finally, Jenny Nolan is responsible for the financial management and maintenance of commercial and contractual relationships in her role as Finance Director.
Following this dynamic expansion, Bates Smart look forward to continuing the good work in 2008.
