New MD, new look: Same values

Over the last 15 years, Environmental Essentials has undergone considerable growth and expansion to reach our current position as leaders in the marketplace.

Danny KirbyshireRather than resting on our laurels we work continuously to strengthen the business and its values: Trust, Accountability, Collaboration, Clarity, Pride and Passion.

Through our fresh look and redesigned website we hope to reinforce these values and to engage with new and existing clients as we expand and diversify. Otherwise, it is business as usual for our growing company.

We have always aimed to provide the highest level of service and we always will. We continue to work from our regional offices and UKAS-accredited regional laboratories, as well as operating our fleet of mobile emergency response vehicles, with plans to grow our operations in Scotland and the South in the near future.

Coinciding with the launch of our new website, the board of directors are delighted to announce the appointment of long-serving member of staff Danny Kirbyshire as Managing Director. A culture of continuous professional development has always been central to our ethos, and few can convey this as well as Danny.

He began working for the company as an asbestos surveyor, then as a surveyor-analyst, before taking on project manager, operations manager and regional manager roles. Most recently he was regional director for England and Wales. The wealth of knowledge, insight and experience he has gained over the years will doubtless stand him in good stead in his new post, and we hope you will join us in wishing him the best.

“Danny has been with us for many years,” commented James Riley, Executive Director of Environmental Essentials. “He has progressed through the ranks and proved a hugely valuable asset to the company at every stage. This seemed like a natural next step for him and for us, and we’re sure we will see the business continue going from strength to strength under Danny’s leadership.”

“I am very much looking forward to working with James, Richard and the rest of the team to build on past successes and break into new markets,” said Danny Kirbyshire, Managing Director. “Our vision for the future of the business involves a certain amount of diversification into different sectors, offering an expanded range of services. I’m excited to be taking on this role at such a well-respected, thriving company.”
