FDS Consult has promoted Michel Wizenberg to the post of Group Manager, fast tracking him to the company’s management team just two years after he first joined the firm.
The move comes as FDS Consult consolidates its position at the forefront of the sector following major projects recently completed for Barratt Homes, Mace and Midgard. The company has established a global reputation for its innovative approach to challenging conventional ideas on the design of fire safety within buildings and Michel’s talent, dynamic attitude and creative thinking have helped him rise rapidly through the ranks at the pioneering firm.
Comments FDS Consult’s co-managing director, Gerard Sheridan: “FDS Consult applies a level of creative thinking to find solutions that not only enhance safety but also stay true to the building’s architectural concept and deliver value engineering benefits. The attitude and skills Michel has displayed since he first joined FDS Consult have been very impressive and have put him on track to rise to a management position. He is an extremely valuable member of a very talented team and in his new role he will be instrumental in helping us build on our position as the most innovative fire engineering consultancy in the country”.
Michel commented: “It was FDS Consult’s out-of-the-box culture and holistic approach to fire design that first attracted me to the company and it’s been fantastic to work in an environment where creativity and problem solving are valued and encouraged. I am passionate about finding practical solutions that enhance safety whilst helping to deliver more aesthetically adventurous and practical buildings and I’m delighted that my new role will enable me to help drive this ambition for FDS Consult.”
