RSK Group has founded RSK Water in a concerted bid
to establish itself in the UK water industry.
Operating from three regional bases - Cirencester, Glasgow
and Derby - the company's network of engineers, scientists
and project managers offer a comprehensive range of innovative,
water industry-specific consultancy services - all of which
are complemented by RSK Group's vast environmental capabilities.
The formation of RSK Water is the latest move in an RSK Group
expansion drive that, since December 2006, has seen an increase
in staff numbers by a dramatic 156% to 950 and a doubling
of its turnover potential through ten strategic acquisitions
and the start-up of six new companies.
Its stated ambition - to become one of the water industry's
leading players - has already got off to a flying start with
the recruitment of two known high-flying and pre-eminent industry
Ruth Allen - former chief executive of leading water industry
consultancy Ewan Group, director of the pioneering Water Research
Centre (WRc) and a highly-respected voice in the water industry
- joined RSK Group in September to establish RSK Water. After
a formative period, she appointed fellow former Ewan Group
director - Andrew Gunning - to the position of managing director
of RSK Water in mid-April.
Both Allen and Gunning were highly influential in the Ewan
Group's meteoric growth from a £2m to a £18m-business in just
five years, before it was acquired by Mouchel in 2006.
