Expansion of Exec Team at Ecus

Ecus is delighted to announce the expansion of the Executive Team. Craig Edwards will take over as Managing Director, joining Kit Hawkins and Paul White, with incumbent MD Kit moving to Business Development Director.

It is a fast-moving and exciting time for the environmental consultancy sector. Ecus has decided that an essential business development role is needed that will allow Kit to be engaged with the market full-time to give clients the services they need when they need them. This will allow Craig, as incoming Managing Director, the opportunity to continually focus on quality and on-time delivery. Paul White will continue as Strategy Director shaping the development of the business in response to the evolving market.

"This new role will enable me to bring the most value to our business and allow me to interact more closely with our clients and teams. This will give a renewed focus on the markets that we work in, and the clients that we work alongside, and will help enable us to be the company that we want to be – future-facing and best-in-class."

Kit Hawkins, Business Development Director at Ecus

Incoming Managing Director, Craig Edwards, joins from his last post at AECOM as Managing Director (UK and Ireland) of the Environment and Ground Engineering team. A proven leader, Craig is passionate about protecting the environment and operational excellence.

"I’m delighted to be joining such an exciting, forward-facing business with so much potential to grow and diversify, to offer more to existing clients, and to provide quality services to new clients. I’m also pleased to be joining the wider Cura Terrae group to help drive forward their mission of providing services and solutions to work towards a brighter, more sustainable future."
