This is a major step in the development of Crondall and we look forward to working with John as we continue to grow the group.  John brings a wealth of industry experience from the oil and gas sector, and his specific expertise in the growth of consulting organisations will be of particular value as we expand the company over the next few years and capitalise on the opportunities within a rejuvenated industry”.
