Chris studied Zoology at Cardiff University and after graduation took up a research post at the nearby National Museum of Wales working on a number of Ecology projects- eventually culminating in the publication of a paper on Biodiversity.
It was at University that he had his first experience of commercial pest control with a residential post studying Insect pests with the Forestry Commission at their Alice Holt research centre in Surrey, but it wasn’t until a few years later that a chance sighting for pest control surveyors cemented his new vocation in public health pest management.
After success as a Technical Consultant, Chris quickly moved on to the position of Branch Manager, and latterly Regional Manager, for one of the leading national servicing companies.
Following on from 8 successful years in the servicing side of the Industry- Chris spent nearly a decade in the post of Divisional Director - running Barrettine Environmental Health, one of Europe's leading Manufacturers and Distributors of pest control products into both the public health and agricultural sectors.
As well as his experience of the Product and Distribution market, Chris is a highly experienced Field Biologist and regularly conducts Inspections into Food and other high risk commercial sites.Audits can be carried out to conform to external audit bodies (such as BRC, AIB etc) or to act as an Independent assessment as to the current pest provision.
Chris is a member of the Society of Biology and is a Chartered Biologist.
