Leading national engineering specialist, SES Engineering Services (SES), has announced a key appointment across its North East and Yorkshire region.

Phil Walker, who has been with SES for five years, has been appointed to the key role of business development manager for the region, in a well-deserved promotion.

Since joining SES, Phil has been a driving force behind much of SES’ recent work winning in the North East, and has until now been working in a pre-construction capacity.

Developing his extensive knowledge of the region, which spans from Berwick in Northumberland to South Yorkshire, his experience of customer management through pre-construction and managing a number of successful tenders all adds to his ability to forge strong links with SES’ growing client base, making him perfectly suited to his new role and responsibilities.

Speaking about the appointment, Steve Joyce, SES’ regional director for the North East and Yorkshire said:  “Phil has shown tremendous commitment to project delivery and has been instrumental in much of the North East’s office recent work winning. I have every confidence in his ability to take on this wider remit and with his continued success in securing new business in our chosen sectors with our key clients.”

SES was the first Mechanical, Electrical and Public Health Services contractor (MEP) to achieve BRE Accredited BIM Level 2 Business Certification, one month ahead of the government’s public sector project compliance deadline.
