Welcoming our new Chairman

Published on by

There have been some exciting changes here at Community Clean and whilst we are sad to say goodbye to our friends at Irvine Grenson, we are pleased to introduce you to our new Chairman, Paul Lester CBE. 
Paul has been linked with Community Clean for some years now and with his vast knowledge and extensive experience within the construction and engineering industry we are very excited to announce him as our new Chairman.  

Background of our Chairman 

Paul is a football and fitness fanatic, a devoted West Bromwich Albion fan through and through. Luckily our directors Andy and Martin do not support the rival teams, so there will be no differences there!
After leaving school, Paul studied at Nottingham Trent University, graduating with a degree as a Chartered Engineer, Paul is now a Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers. 
Paul’s career has a string of involvement in several Engineering and Construction companies. Paul was previously a CEO of Graseby plc, VT Group and Group MD of Balfour Beatty plc and Chairman of John Laing Infrastructure
Paul is currently the Non-Executive Chairman of Essentra plc along with McCarthy & Stone plc and FirstPort. He was recognised in 2007 for his Services to Engineering and awarded the CBE. 
We very much look forward to working alongside Paul, learning from his knowledge and experience within our industry.  We know this will be the start of a great partnership.

Looking to the future

Andy Izzard, Sales Director of Community Clean says: "This is an exciting chapter for Community Clean. Paul is bringing a wealth of experience and knowledge which will help us take the business to the next level. Paul will help mentor and grow our leadership team, giving a great foundation for a bright future."
Paul Lester CBE, Chairman of Community Clean also comments: “I have known Community Clean for five years and am excited at the opportunity to help them grow and develop what is a very good business and deliver quality services to their customers.”
