Kevin Gardiner leads the team at TG Environmental in Ellesmere.

Environmental expert joins the team

Published:  27 May, 2016

An environmental specialist with over 35 years’ experience in the industry has joined a family-owned Shropshire firm.

Kevin Gardiner has joined the team at Tudor Griffiths Group, in Ellesmere, where he will oversee the company’s environmental division based at the company’s head office.

He is a chartered waste manager and a chartered environmentalist who has worked in both the public and private sectors, and he also has a strong engineering and operational background.

Mr Gardiner’s key role will be to manage the TG Environmental team (formerly known as TG Waste Services), which offers a fully-integrated waste management service to all commercial, construction, agricultural and retail businesses, and domestic customers.

“I am very pleased to have joined Tudor Griffiths Group, and I’m keen to build on the already strong relationships my team has with businesses, customers, environmental organisations, and the local community,” said Mr Gardiner.

“In my previous roles, I worked closely with industry leaders to develop national procedures and facilities, and I have held senior management positions for over 20 years. This is an extremely exciting time to be taking up a new challenge at TG Environmental as the division is currently undergoing a complete restructure and all our systems and services are being reviewed.”

Mr Gardiner continued: “We already have a comprehensive environmental policy in place, but the launch of the new-look division gives us a fantastic opportunity to take an even stronger stance and ensure all our services meet the very highest environmental standards.”

Having previously managed a major landfill site while managing a 200-acre adjoining nature reserve at the same time, Mr Gardiner believes his experience will help Tudor Griffiths Group reinforce its reputation as environmental champions.
