Meet our new Directors – Latest
Having experienced rapid growth in the past couple of years, we are delighted to announce that we have recently expanded our Senior Management Team, with George Georgiou and Mark Goodbrand now appointed as Directors. While they will continue to lead their teams of engineers, the new role brings additional responsibilities to drive business forward and achieve the practice’s ambitious plans.
From joining Elliott Wood as a trainee over 17 years ago, George is now instrumental in driving the in-house sustainability team and developing new business, ensuring all projects are consistently delivering high value, high quality and highly sustainable solutions. He has delivered a number of award-winning schemes and has significant experience in refurbishments and complex geometry.
“Having progressed from being a trainee at Elliott Wood, the values of the organisation have always been a great driver for me. I am really excited about the opportunity to play my part in the senior team and help shape the future direction of the company, especially given our ambitious plans ahead.“
With 20 years’ engineering experience, Mark has completed a series of award-winning buildings in London and beyond. He has significant experience of working with complex sites and is motivated by the challenge of investigating and understanding buildings and their locations to adapt them effectively for his clients. He particularly enjoys working on intelligent, modern designs that transform a site to give them a contemporary relevance and a new lease of life.
“It’s an exciting time at Elliott Wood and it’s great to be part of team whose values align so closely with my own. We look to contribute positively to society in a way that helps people live longer, healthier and more enjoyable lives. We do this through looking at things from a different perspective and exploring the unexpected benefits. This has always been how I like to work and think, and I have completely embraced this philosophy at Elliott Wood. In my new role I’m keen to promote what makes our practice a better company to work in and with. This has been key to my own motivation and happiness in the workplace since joining Elliott Wood over the last two years.”
Elliott Wood Founder & Chief Executive, Gary Elliott said of the appointment:
“George and Mark have been invaluable members of the team since joining and I am delighted that they have now taken on an even more significant role in the business. Investing and developing our team has always been at the heart of our business so it’s great to see them both join our senior team. Their experience and commitment to our purpose of Engineering a Better Society will bring significant value to the next stage of our business growth. “
