Dynamic Duo Appointed at M-EC

Dynamic Duo Appointed at M-ECIbstock-based consulting development engineers, M-EC has added to its rapidly growing team with two new appointments, Gaetano Pellegrino and Manos Mavrogiorgis, taking the total of new recruits to seven in the last six months.

The first new addition, Gaetano Pellegrino, joins the Hydrology team as a specialist flood risk/hydrology engineer. With over eight years’ experience, Gaetano will be responsible for river/flood modelling, flood risk assessments and drainage strategies for high risk sites and will work alongside team leader, Neil Onions.

“I was attracted to M-EC because I was offered the opportunity to develop my existing flood modelling skills and work with a team which has long standing experience in the hydrology sector,” explained Gaetano. “My background includes work on projects in Italy, Northern Ireland and England so I hope to be able to draw on this experience as I commence my role.”

M-EC’s second new appointment, joining the transport team as a graduate transport engineer, is Manos Mavrogiorgis. After relocating to the UK from Athens, Greece, Manos completed his MSc in Transport Engineering and Planning before starting his new role. Reporting to Tim Rose, Manos will work on a range of assignments including transport statements, travel plans, site access advice/design, off-site highway improvements and sustainable transport appraisals.

Manos said, “M-EC’s excellent reputation in its field was a major factor when I was looking for a graduate position. I’m excited to be in the next generation of recruits and I hope to help the company to continue to thrive in the future.”

M-EC’s managing director, Eddie Mewies concluded: “Despite difficult market conditions, M-EC continues to grow, winning work across Leicestershire and the wider East Midlands; as a result, we felt the time was right to appoint Gaetano and Manos. Both recruits are enthusiastic, committed and professional so will complement the team perfectly. Looking ahead, we have a healthy forward order book so this, coupled with our new team members, means the future looks bright for M-EC!”
