Three new senior recruits

RVA Group has appointed three new project managers as it continues to expand its operations both in the UK and across the globe.

Rashid Shauq, James Armstrong and Keith Kirby are all highly skilled professional engineers with many years’ experience of working in high hazard sectors, including the oil and gas, chemical, pharmaceutical and manufacturing industries.

Richard Vann, RVA’s managing director, comments: “The nature of our work means we hand-pick the very best and most talented individuals in our sector. All of our three new project managers have considerable knowledge of the markets we serve and they will be a great addition to the RVA team as it continues to expand, winning new international projects as well as ensuring it maintains the No.1 position in the UK, which is equally important to us.”

RVA has used the last 12 months wisely trading through the global recession whilst at the same time, investing heavily in its personnel training, quality management systems and IT infrastructure as it prepares to build on its solid position. The move is seen as crucial to supporting and sustaining the business on an international platform and continuing to meet the dynamic demands of its clients.

Richard Vann explains: “This investment by the company is considerable and absolutely necessary – our international work in particular needs to be supported by a strong corporate infrastructure that operates efficiently around the clock and across multiple time zones.

“Our reputation for the delivery of safe, secure and best value engineering projects has grown steadily over the last few years and this in turn has helped increase the number of overseas assignments both for existing and new clients. It’s a reputation well deserved by our hard working, highly experienced and innovative team.”

RVA’s growing client portfolio includes major blue chip companies including Total, ConocoPhillips, INVISTA, GSK, Bayer, INEOS, Huntsman and BASF. The company has recently secured major projects in the UK, Europe, North America and Asia.
