Following the retirement of Martin Green at the end of 2015 after some 20 years’ service, we are pleased to confirm that Stephen Smith has been appointed as Commercial Director of Warner Surveys.
Stephen is an experienced finance professional with proven expertise in setting-up, developing and commercialising technology based organisations. His breadth and depth of skills will prove very valuable to Warner Surveys as his area of operation is rather more diverse than that of many Commercial Directors in other organisations. The need is strong to deliver innovative, scalable and robust value-adding solutions.
Stephen joins Warner Surveys from Johnson Matthey Fuel Cells Ltd, (a subsidiary of Johnson Matthey Plc.) where he was Finance Controller and Finance Director for some 15 years and played a key role in the creation of a very credible organisation with 150 employees and a T/O of £20m.
Unusually for a Commercial Director Stephen also holds B.Eng (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering as well as ACMA and CGMA. However and more importantly Stephen shares the Warner Surveys values regarding customer service and client relations.
Stephen lives near Marlborough in Wiltshire and works from the Warner Surveys Head Office in Theale (Reading) He is a family man and a keen cyclist and skier.
We wish Stephen every success in his new position and look forward to some significant new initiatives planned for the commercial systems of Warner Surveys.
