Graham returns to Lanes to head up East London depot
Lanes Group plc has appointed experienced drainage professional Graham Ross to be the new Regional Manager of its East London depot.
Graham, pictured right, with depot Operations Manager Mark Scott, is returning to Lanes, as he had worked as a jet vac engineer for the Lanes Sevenoaks depot, in Kent, during 2008 and 2009.
In his most recent role, before re-joining the Lanes family, he was an area manager for another drainage contractor.
Lanes South East Regional Manager Paul Monck said: “Graham brings to Lanes a wealth of drainage management experience and, just as importantly, an excellent approach to delivering first class customer service.
“He will play a key role in supporting the East London depot’s growing customer base. Graham will also work with colleagues at depots in West London, Sevenoaks, St Neots, and Swaffham to offer an integrated approach to drainage service delivery across the South East of England.”
Graham said he was impressed with the growth and development of Lanes’ services in the time he has been away.
“It’s good to be back with Lanes at what’s an exciting time for the business,” he added.
“Lanes is now the best one-stop-shop for drainage services across the UK, from simple drain unblocking to the most sophisticated lining services in the country.
“More and more customers want to be able to trust one supplier to provide all their drainage maintenance service needs, and it’s my job to prove to customers in East London that Lanes is the perfect choice to do that.
“We have an excellent team here in East London with bags of experience, a can-do spirit, and an unrivalled approach to health and safety and innovative practice. On top of that, we can coordinate services both regionally and nationally.”
Lanes East London shares a depot with the Lanes Rail Division at Rainham, in Essex. Graham joins a growing team of drainage professionals, including long-serving Operations Manager Mark Scott, and an expanded team of Area Development Managers.
Lanes East London uses the latest specialist drainage equipment and vehicles, including advanced recycler jet vac tankers. Services include CCTV drainage surveying, highway drainage cleaning, culvert cleaning, and sewer rehabilitation and lining.
