Key Team Members & Locations

Key Team Members & Locations

One of the key attractions of the management team taking back the ownership of Wallace Whittle after just under 10 years with TUV SUD was the opportunity for all staff from all 7 locations to move back to the new Wallace Whittle business so we could very much continue “business as usual” from day one and all our clients and fellow design team members would see a seamless transition.

This means that our offices in Aberdeen, Belfast, Glasgow, Edinburgh, London UAE and Warrington will all remain as part of the new Wallace Whittle along with just under 90 staff including key team members from each office.  Details of all office and regional leads can be found on our website.
