Welcome Back Kerry

Kerry has recently re-joined the GB Card & Partners team following nearly five years living in Australia. Kerry is now working in our Exeter office as a Principal Consultant and is enjoying working on some familiar projects as well as some new challenges.

For the last three years, Kerry worked for State Government managing the largest contaminated sites projects on Crown Land in Western Australia. This included the Northampton Lead Tailings Project which included the construction of a containment cell for lead contaminated material and working on the Wittenoom Asbestos Management Area. Wittenoom was the location of historical mining of blue asbestos with an estimated 2 million cubic metres of asbestos tailings in vast stockpiles remaining in the gorges. Kerry’s experience in the public sector has really helped her appreciate what a client needs in a consultant and is looking forward to incorporating this into her role at GB Card and Partners.

Prior to her time in government, Kerry has gained extensive knowledge of PFAS by managing a number of projects for the Australian Department of Defence in the Northern Territory and Queensland as well as a large-scale PFAS investigation at Perth Airport in Western Australia. She particularly enjoyed sediment and surface water sampling in crocodile infested waters in swamps close to Darwin.

Outside of work Kerry enjoys running, going to the gym and being at the beach, the latter mainly due to her husband’s obsession with windsurfing.

Welcome back and congratulations Laura!

We are delighted to welcome Laura back from her Maternity Leave this month, back into the Exeter office and jumping straight into the fray.  Laura’s return marks an exciting change at the company as we’re pleased to announce that she has been promoted to Director.  Laura will be returning to her active role in the strategic development and implementation of the business objectives alongside her technical project expertise and project financial management. A massive congratulations to Laura on her well-deserved promotion, and also on becoming a mum for the second time.


Congratulations Danni & Jola

Last Summer GB Card & Partners welcomed Danni & Jola to the company and a year on they have both proved to be great assets to the company.

Both graduates from Cardiff University, Danni with a First-Class Honours with a BSc in Environmental Geoscience and Jola with a First-Class MEng Civil and Environmental Engineering degree but thanks to COVID their graduations had been delayed. Last week they finally got to attend their graduation ceremonies at the landmark Principality Stadium (formerly Millennium Stadium) in Cardiff. An exciting day for both of them and a chance to finally celebrate their achievements and years of hard work.

As well as enjoying their graduation ceremonies Danni & Jola have further reasons to celebrate as their hard work continues to pay off as they have both recently received promotions, Danni to Geo-Environmental Engineer and Jola to Geotechnical Design Engineer. Their contributions to GB Card & Partners since joining have been outstanding and we’re looking forward to seeing them continue to flourish.
