QuadConsult is delighted to announce that Andrew Villis is now a Director registered at Companies House in recognition of the increasing responsibilities he's been taking on throughout his time as Associate.
Andrew began his career in engineering when he was appointed by QuadConsult Director Chris Usher during previous employment with a Cardiff-based consultancy. Andrew later joined Chris in QuadConsult, coming in as Project Engineer before being promoted to Associate.
Andrew is highly respected by colleagues and clients, having worked on many projects and with a great number of clients. To now have him contributing in this senior role is a great bonus for the company.

To raise money they're looking for sponsors, including auctioning logo space on each panel and window of the donated car (above) they'll be driving. If you want to bid head for Andrew's JustGiving page now as it's expected they'll be going like hot cakes - QuadConsult has already put in its bid!
