Asbestos firm’s new director

A Cramlington-based health and safety firm has appointed a new technical director and board member.

ASKAMS, the asbestos, water, fire, health and safety and environmental compliance services, has appointed Aaron Dodd as technical director and board member.

As well as overseeing the technical department nationally, including three analysis labs, Aaron will work closely with ASKAMS founder and managing director, Stewart McNicholl, in providing strategical management.

Aaron said: “AKSAMS is already going places and has huge potential for further growth – I’m really looking forward to being integral to this.

“It is a very customer and employee focused company with values I admire, so it is a great move for me from both a personal and professional point of view.”

ASKAM’s managing director, Stewart McNicholl, added: “Having Aaron join us is a real coup, not only because of his technical expertise – he has a proven track record of improving businesses efficiencies and delivering measurable change – but also his ability to motivate, bring team cohesion and build a culture where people want to achieve.”
