Chairman - Alex Kettle

Alex works for Everlast Waterproofing as a Contracts Co-Ordinator.

I have worked for Everlast for the last six years and my role includes managing and delivery of multiple refurbishment projects with a value up to £500,000.   I enjoy my work, the variety of projects and the challenges offered.    The company has recently won an award from the NFRC for Sheeting and Cladding and also a ROSPA award for health and safety,  and we have a strong focus on training across all levels of the business. 

  Everlast has supported me through several qualifications including NEBOSH and a Level 6 qualification in Construction Site Management.   Part of my role includes selecting appropriate sub-contractors and arranging appropriate training for them so I believe I have a good knowledge of training requirements, and I am keen to learn more and encourage the take up of training across the industry.   The Senior Management of Everlast support my involvement with the group, both in terms of the time required to complete the role of chairman effectively and to offer advice and guidance on technical or other issues that might arise.
