As Managing Director for Environment & Safety, Norman offers a huge amount of expertise and experience. Norman joined the company as Managing Director of the Compliance division, having already built a varied career in operations and services. In 1988, he started at National Pest Control Ltd, where within two years, he was promoted to the role of Service Manager for Scotland and the North East. By 1995, he was Northern Operations Manager and in 1997, he was appointed as UK Operations Director.
Likewise, previous experience for Norman has included many senior positions. In 2002, he was the UK Managing Director at National Britannia with responsibility for seven companies, before leaving to start his own business the following year. In 2007, this was sold to the National Britannia Group and Norman re-joined as Managing Director of the Testing & Inspection division, whose turnover exceeded £24m. Therefore Norman is ideally placed to lead group-wide commercial initiatives, which align SOCOTEC’s capabilities with the needs of its clients and target markets.
