Kevin Saddington – Technical Director
For the last 25 years Kevin has been involved in project management locally, nationally and internationally. His management style is very much hands-on and leading from the front. His successes over the years are due to his logical and systematic approach to problem solving and the relationships he develops with the customer, whether that be with local and national clients and businesses or in his extensive work abroad with ex-pats and local nationals, working with him to bring a project to completion.
If Kevin ever gets a day off, he enjoys cycling and spending time with his Grandchildren and lovely wife, Ann.
