Franks Portlock Strengthens Offering With New Appointment

We are delighted to announce that we have bolstered our service offering with the appointment of a head of business operations (water hygiene).

Sean Green has more than 29 years’ experience in the water hygiene and treatment industry and has joined Franks Portlock to establish and lead the delivery of our new water hygiene services.

Sean holds a breadth of industry qualifications including City and Guilds BS2 Control of Legionella in Hot and Cold Water Systems, City and Guilds BS4 Hazard Identification and Risk Assessment of Water Systems within Buildings, IOSH Managing Safety and Water Supply fitting regulation. He has previously held the positions of regional manager, area business manager, operations manager, water treatment technician and water treatment engineer and is a member of the Water Management Society, the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme and Approved Plumbers’ Scheme.

Our water hygiene services, which will launch in early 2020, will include a full consultancy service from the management, monitoring, modification and maintenance of water treatment systems, as well as services such as Legionella risk assessments. This comes at a time of growth for Franks Portlock as we have also recently appointed Natasha Wilson as a trainee asbestos analyst and Amber Thomson as an asbestos analyst.

Commenting on his appointment Sean said: “I am delighted to be joining Franks Portlock and to be able to utilise my experience to help shape and lead the new water hygiene division. Franks Portlock has a reputation for the high calibre advice and services it offers, and I am truly looking forward to working with the team to expand the company’s current offering to include high quality and responsive water hygiene services. Our ultimate aim is to work with our water hygiene customers to make sustainable improvements which ensure that they are managing their liability and meeting the correct regulations.”

Phil Franks, technical director at Franks Portlock, said: “This is an exciting time for Franks Portlock as we launch our new water hygiene services. As an asbestos and environmental consultancy, we have seen great demand from our clients for water hygiene services as there is a great synergy between these and the wide range of asbestos services we currently deliver. I am certain that this will further strengthen our offering, and the fact that we are able to be so responsive to our clients’ requirements is a true testament to the hard work and expertise of our staff.

“Sean is a highly experienced water treatment and hygiene specialist; I am confident that he will be a great asset to Franks Portlock and it is a pleasure to welcome him to the team.”
