Matthew Heins joined the Oxfordshire-based landscape and soil consultancy last month after moving to the UK following geological exploration and mining consultancy work.
Heins, who has two degrees in Geology and Geography, will utilise his broader business development experience to identify upcoming projects which might benefit from the expertise at Tim O’Hare Associates (TOHA). The consultancy delivers a range of services, including extensive soil surveying and site investigation, testing and analysis, design and specification and planning and monitoring.
Company founder Tim O’Hare said: "The team at TOHA is very much enjoying having Matthew on board. His background in site investigation will strengthen the TOHA consultancy team and he has also brought new impetus to our business development activities. Our reputation has delivered much of our work to date but we must never be complacent and Matthew’s role will ensure we continue to engage proactively with existing and potential clients."
Matthew said his new job was an amazing opportunity to learn more about soils whilst contributing his own knowledge and experience of geology to the team.
He added: "It’s a privilege to work alongside my TOHA colleagues and I hope I will be able to help generate further business opportunities for them, working on some of the most iconic and influential landscape projects in the UK and further afield."
