The team gets active for Sport Relief

By

Our team decided to get active for the Sport Relief challenge this year, dressing up for a six-a-side football match in aid of the charity event. While it may have made it tricky to take the match seriously, it certainly got everybody, from Count Dracula to the Easter Bunny, up and moving. In a game that raised their heart rates, they also raised a laugh and £258.11 for Sport Relief – thanks to all who took part (Jordan, Rory, Luke, Ryan, James, Darren, Phil, Jack, Mark F, Kyle, Mark D, Rich, Isaac) and to those who donated. The final score was 8-5 to the animals and banana!

Allan Webb welcomes Stephen Hunt in new role

By

Allan Webb is proud to have Stephen Hunt (formerly of Sema Ltd) join them in the position of ‘Head of ILS, ARM and Safety’. This will strengthen and develop Allan Webb’s expertise and market presence in the ILS, ARM and Safety sectors.

Throughout his long and distinguished career, Stephen has gained significant experience and knowledge in his field, even lecturing at post graduate level in the ILS, LSA and Reliability disciplines at the University of Portsmouth. He was awarded a Master of Science degree in Logistics Engineering from the University of Exeter and is currently working towards his second Masters degree, this time in Risk & Safety Management. It was the desire to pass on this knowledge and experience that led him to join Allan Webb Ltd.

While Allan Webb has, in the past, worked predominantly in the defence industry, ILS and ARM skills can be applied to a wide and diverse set of industries: defence, aerospace, rail, oil & gas, etc. Although terminology may differ between industry sectors, from an ILS perspective the principles will always be the same, therefore Allan Webb can offer a full ‘one stop shop’ capability to both existing and potential clients.
