Moving On

Mark O'Hanlon

Following a recent restructure of the business, one of the founding Directors, David Gardner has decided that the time is right for him to seek new challenges outside of the business.

David has been instrumental alongside Sean Anderson in founding and growing NCS into a well respected and trusted building and civil engineering contractor operating across a range of sectors in the north of England.

David says, “after a fantastic and enjoyable 18 years setting up, growing and working at NCS, I have decided the time is right for me to pursue a new challenge and I will be leaving the Company as of 20th November 2019. I would like to take this opportunity to wish all at NCS best wishes for the future and a warm thank you to all clients, suppliers and staff that I have worked with over the 18 years”.

David’s departure draws a curtain on a working relationship with Sean that has lasted some 30 years!

Sean says, “I’ve known David a long time and I genuinely wish him well in his quest to find a new challenge that interests and excites him” adding “everyone at NCS wishes David and his family best wishes and good luck”
