Phil arrived at Beech Group in the summer of 2013 having spent the previous four years working for Shell / Essar at the Stanlow Manufacturing Complex. After his graduation from University Phil globe trotted for a couple of years before concentrating on his career that has seen him gain varied experience in a number of business sectors but predominantly in the petrochemical industry.

Lauren Kemp
Lauren Kemp Financial Controller

‘LOGGS’ joined the company in 2011 and she is becoming part of the furniture. This last year has seen her qualify to level 3 AAT and she continues her studies on Level 4 AAT. The decision comes next as to whether to go for another accounting qualification. Exciting. Lauren controls the entire accounting function and is becoming quite a formidable character. Asking for petty cash is quite an unnerving experience. Away from the books and accounts, Lauren has just got married (hence the name change) and is busy snuggling on the sofa with new hubby when she’s not doing insanity at the gym that is.

Joel McCann
Joel McCann Contracts Planner

Since joining us in 2012, Joel’s evolution has moved on a pace and he is now a very important cog in the Contracts department providing all manner of support to Phil Jordan and the contracts teams on site. It’s a very busy role ranging from the actual tenders through to assembling the site services and paperwork. His IT skills and work ethic mean he is a fine young executive. He is qualified to use Primavera. When he isn’t churning out good work, it appears that he is running around like a headless chicken on the football field. The company sponsors his team AFC Rockvilla and their performances can best be described as inconsistent.
