Steven Booth takes helm at Guardian Water Treatment

27th March 2018

We are pleased to announce that Steven Booth has become Managing Director. He will report to Phil Greenwood, CEO, WCS Group, which acquired Guardian in December 2017.

Steven has worked for Guardian for six years and is a trained water treatment chemist, with experience across a range of industry sectors; from Facilities Management, to Food & Beverage.  He has played a crucial part in Guardian’s continuing aim to provide sustainable and highly effective water treatment solutions for customers across the UK and especially within London’s M25. He is also focused on Closed Systems and the partnership with Hevasure. Steven said:

“Guardian has gone from strength to strength and I am delighted to take the helm at what promises to be an exciting new chapter. Our acquisition by WCS Group and integration in to the Marlowe Critical Services Group provides welcome investment in people, systems and processes. We now have a far larger team and the scale and operational support to handle large customers with a national footprint. We have a wider offer too and can introduce customers to Fire & Security and Air services”.

Customers will also benefit from considerably enhanced healthcare and education expertise and a national engineering team focused on Close System operation, sustainability, waste and re-purposing/ harvesting water as part of efficient, whole of life services across water and air hygiene sectors.

In addition to Steven’s promotion, the company has appointed Toby Hunt as Key Account Director and former Chief Executive, Mark Hobson, has moved into a Non-Executive role during the transition period.
