Management changes at PUNCH

PUNCH Consulting Engineers are delighted to announce the appointment of Emma McKendrick as our new Managing Director with effect from 1st June 2013.  Emma joined the firm in 2006 and currently heads up the Environmental Division.  Philip Bayfield will replace Emma as head of the Environmental Division. 

Our current Managing Director, John Pollock, will leave the company after 7 years in the position and everyone at PUNCH wishes him every success. 

Like many other Civil /Structural Consulting Engineering firms, PUNCH has had to adapt to survive the collapse of the Construction Industry in Ireland.  John has been instrumental in leading and overseeing the changes which, to date, include rebranding and restructuring in 2010, internationalisation and development of the Environmental Division.  International and environmental business growth has been so successful that it now makes up in excess of 30% of annual turnover.  Celebrating our 40th year in business we currently employ 65 staff in our Irish offices located in Dublin, Limerick & Cork.
