M-EC Development Technical Consultants, a leading name in the field of engineering and technical consulting, is undergoing a transformative change. Co-founder and majority shareholder Eddie Mewies has sold his stake in the company, stepping back from his role as Managing Director with Alex Bennett, acquiring all shares, assuming full ownership of M-EC and the role of Managing Director.
Eddie and Alex founded M-EC Development Technical Consultants in 2009 at the height of the recession, with a vision to provide innovative and sustainable technical solutions to clients across various industries. The company has grown from its humble beginnings to become a respected player in the technical consulting sector.
Reflecting on his decision, Eddie expressed gratitude for the incredible journey he has experienced at M-EC. He stated, "It has been an honour to build and lead M-EC alongside a team of talented professionals. I am immensely proud of what we have achieved, from delivering exceptional projects to fostering excellence and innovation within the organisation. As I take this step back, I am excited to follow M-EC's journey into the new era ahead. I am confident that the company's dedicated team and leadership will continue to thrive and excel.”
Alex, who has been instrumental in the success of M-EC as a minority shareholder and Director for the past 14 years, brings a wealth of experience and expertise to his new role as Managing Director. With a deep understanding of the company's operations, Alex is well-positioned to steer M-EC towards future growth and continued excellence in technical consulting.
"I am honoured to take on the responsibility of leading M-EC into its next phase of development," said Alex. "Eddie's leadership and dedication have laid a strong foundation for our continued success. I envision building upon the company's values, ensuring a distinctive and vibrant working culture for our staff so we can continue to enhance our ability to deliver excellence to our clients, supporting their aspirations and fostering strong relationships. We are committed to nurturing a company culture with personality, where each team member actively contributes to our collective success, driving innovation within the industry.”
As part of this transition, M-EC’s Director, Tim Rose, will remain an integral part of the leadership team. Tim’s ongoing support will be instrumental in ensuring a smooth transition and continuity of operations and supporting Alex in steering the business forward.
Tim comments, “I've had the privilege of working for Eddie and Alex for the past 17 years, prior to M-EC’s conception, over which time, we have weathered numerous changes together. I'm deeply appreciative of their unwavering support, and I eagerly anticipate the future, working alongside Alex to propel the company and nurture our staff members. This transition marks a new chapter for M-EC, and I have full confidence that we will grow and excel with our collective experience and dedication.”
Although Eddie has transitioned from his position as Managing Director and shareholder, he will temporarily assume a consultancy position at M-EC, ensuring the seamless progression of ongoing projects and providing essential support during this transitional phase.
