Ecology consultancy celebrates 5th birthday with eight new appointments

Midlands based ecology specialists RammSanderson is celebrating its fifth birthday and has also appointed eight new staff at its Stafford office.

Founded in 2014 by Oliver Ramm and Nick Sanderson, Ramm Sanderson has steadily grown its turnover to £2m and expanded offices by providing Ecological Consultancy, Flood Risk Assessment and Arboriculture services. The company now employs 43 people in offices located in Ilkeston, Sheffield, London and Stafford.

The Stafford office was opened in September 2015 and is headed by Director, Anthony Mellor, who also joined in 2014. Since then, the Stafford team has won a number of key clients, particularly in the infrastructure and residential sectors.  Growth of its client base across all sectors in the West Midlands has led to the appointment of ten new staff since April.

Commenting, Oliver Ramm said, “We’re really proud of how our business has grown and developed over the last five years. Whilst major national infrastructure projects have been crucial to our success, we are proud of our work and reputation with a portfolio of land owners, developers, planning consultants, architects, and utility companies across the UK which has enabled us to build our credibility to generate referrals that have helped continue the expansion of our business.”

The ten new appointments are in the Ecology division and support functions, ranging from graduates to experienced consultants.

Anthony Mellor added, “We are building a fantastic team of knowledgeable and enthusiastic specialists and I am delighted to welcome ten more additions to the Stafford office. We are strategically located to serve HS2 and other major projects that are taking place within the region which include new highways, enterprise parks, and regeneration projects, all of which will need environmental impact assessments and ongoing advice.”

RammSanderson has also invested in its marketing programme by appointing Simple Marketing Consultancy as its outsourced marketing manager. The new strategy will see the company sponsor or present at keynote presentations at leading environmental and planning conferences as it further raises its profile and consolidates its position as an industry leader.
