It is with great pleasure to announce that Adane Gebreyohaness, Chris Somerville and Nitin Edward have accepted our offer of associateship at Silvester Clark.

These three members of our team have different qualities that strengthen the technical and operational areas of our company.

Adane has been with Silvester Clark for well over 3 years now in a senior role and has been a technical lead in our Wellington office. Adane is a key person in our more complicated projects and a go to person for technical challenges. He has been involved in several significant projects with us and has come up with some exceptional solutions for them. Adane has had roles on standards committees and is well respected in the engineering community.

Chris has been with us a relatively short time but has stamped his mark on the leadership of the Auckland office, with significant growth this year in staff numbers. Chris has been with us for the Covid era and has successfully led the Auckland team through some significant hurdles including the lockdowns. We have some fantastic clients/projects in the Auckland office and Chris and the team have looked after our existing clients as well as starting relationships with new clients.

Nitin started in our Wellington office originally 4 years ago and then transferred to Auckland. Nitin has played a key role in our technical expertise and is the technical lead in the Auckland office, he has looked after some significant projects and clients. Nitin is a go to person for technical problems and has a real passion for structures that gets you excited when you discuss a project with him.

Well done, Adane, Chris and Nitin, this is well deserved and a credit to your outstanding work.

I hope you will join with us in congratulating our three new associates.
