After serving in the royal navy from 1988 until 1996 as a tactical radio operator, I had to cut short my career due to a knee injury. It was at this point that I first entered the Asbestos industry as a removal operative, and gradually worked my way up through the various levels of promotion.
With over twenty years of experience in all levels of middle and upper management, working for other companies across the UK, I decided to set up Guardian Environmental Solutions. I felt I could bring a different approach to the industry, which I believe we have achieved with customer satisfaction and care being the central ethos of the company.
Guardian has gone from strength to strength over the last few years gaining accreditations, licences from the HSE. We are continually striving to improve our process and delivery for all the services we offer.
Our managers, supervisors and operatives work as a close-knit dedicated team, and I am proud to say they will always go the extra mile for our clients.
My personal opinion is that Guardian Environmental is now one of the market leaders within its sector.
"Our approach and delivery of the services we offer is, we believe, a totally different approach to our competitors, with regards to pricing, customer care and job completion..."
After completing a university degree, Daniel decided to pursue a career within the environmental industry, specialising in Asbestos removal, surveying and analytical as his chosen field.
Daniel has experience working on sites for large blue-chip companies, and individual property owners with the majority of his work being analytical, e.g. air tests and clearance.
After deciding to advance his career to a management position, Daniel joined Guardian Environmental Solutions as our contracts manager. His role entails various duties, including client liaison, pricing of works, and the day to day job planning and running of the asbestos removal teams.
Due to his knowledge and experience, he quickly progressed and showed a natural aptitude for management, and was promoted to operations director.
Daniel now deals with customer liaison with all our clients, pricing of large jobs and submitting all relevant paperwork to the Health and Safety Executive before carrying out any licensed asbestos removal works.
Because of his previous experience within the analytical side of the industry, Daniel can inform and help our clients throughout the whole process.
