Having joined EV just over two years ago, fresh from the corporate sector, it’s been a learning curve of significant proportions and there is no doubt I am still learning. I am pleased to have been able to use skills developed over my career in sales management, operations management, systems management and project management to help EV and am very much looking forward to being a part of the continued growth and evolution of EV, for the benefit of our people, clients and stakeholders.
