Sean Ferguson's new role will involve leading multi-disciplinary teams on major projects, bringing together design, engineering, and construction expertise
BES, the specialist in design and construction of specialist facilities for the pharmaceutical, biotech and healthcare sectors has appointed Sean Ferguson (shown left with founding director Steve Marsh) to the role of project director; becoming the company’s youngest ever company director, at aged just 33, having started as an apprentice 16 years ago.
Joining the company’s apprenticeship scheme at 17, Sean soon progressed; moving on to become project engineer and project manager, and now bringing a wealth of experience to his new project director role.
Sean’s new role will involve leading multi-disciplinary teams on major projects, bringing together design, engineering, and construction expertise.
This appointment is even more notable during BES’s 20th year and as Steve Marsh, founding director and executive chairman commented: “When we established the business in 2002, we put a culture of collaboration and personnel development at the heart of BES. Sean is one of many apprentices who have worked and trained during the company’s 20-year history, and I’m pleased to say, alongside others, have risen through the ranks to senior roles. I believe Sean epitomises all that is good about BES, and it is incredibly rewarding to see one of our very first apprentices take up such an important role in the company.”
Sean added, “There were just a handful of us when I first joined BES and we were working on modest projects. Now I’m part of an industry-leading business, delivering some of the most advanced sophisticated facilities in the UK. I am very proud of what has been achieved over the past 20 years, and of my role in that success. I am looking forward to building on that legacy of creating opportunity for young people and delivering excellence for our clients as a director.”
