Jonathan Morton

Rochdale-based Boulting Environmental Services (BES) has promoted Jonathan Morton to the position of engineering director. His appointment strengthens the company’s management structure at a time of high growth and demonstrates BES’ commitment to career development for its staff.

Morton has been with the company since 2004, when he joined as a senior heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) designer. In 2009, Jonathan progressed to the role of project manager, where he delivered many successful projects for blue chip pharmaceutical clients.

More recently, he was promoted to the role of design manager for a multi service term contract for a major customer, where he ensured successful project delivery and used his advanced industry knowledge and experience to mentor his colleagues.

“I joined BES when the company was made up of just nine people,” explained Morton. “The company is now 120 strong and I’m excited to be involved in helping the company to grow further and reach new heights.”

The company has experienced significant growth in the past three years, during which the turnover has trebled. The company also recently relocated to new larger offices at Sandbrook Park, Rochdale.

Steve Marsh, MD at BES, said: “Our staff are pivotal to the success of the business,” said Marsh. “We continue to invest in our employees, including the training of apprentices to graduate level and through a rolling ‘personal effectiveness’ programme purpose-designed to improve performance and enhance the service offered. We provide fantastic opportunities for progression at BES and Jonathan’s promotion is testament to the company’s ongoing commitment to staff development and internal promotion."

Jonathan has 30 years of industry experience including 20 years in the life science market. He started his career as an apprentice, obtaining an OND and HNC in Building Services Engineering before completing his degree in the same subject.
