VIMA Group announce new Senior Consultant

VIMA Group make an exciting start to the year with the appointment of new Senior Consultant Steve Martinez. Steve brings a wealth of Project & Programme Management, Engineering, and Cost Estimation experience and expertise to VIMA Group.

A chartered engineer and qualified project manager Steve joins us after 12 years in UK Government.

Steve gained his experience across a host of wide ranging projects including; battlefield infrastructure, armoured vehicles, line of sight communications as well as supporting the world’s most advanced sonar system. Steve says of his project experience “the chance to work on such a range of technologically advanced, complex equipment projects and programmes in the highly regulated defence environment has put all of my skills to test and allowed me to refine them along the way”.

Most recently Steve has provided strong leadership in the delivery of a high value in-service support programme that successfully maintains enduring requirements for Royal Navy (RN) equipment, supported across all ships and submarines. A key MoD efficiency challenge, this significant negotiation focussed on delivering end to end support with a key strategic supply base spread across the UK. This was just one of the many critical roles undertaken by Steve that required his ability to process detailed technical, operational and support information and manage specialist teams at the same time. Steve adds “I am very proud of the team’s combined success and I’ve been consistently impressed by level of dedication to delivering clear benefits to the customer”.

As VIMA continue to win key strategic wins within the public sector market this is the ideal time for someone of Steve’s calibre to join the team:

“This is an exciting opportunity to be part of such a dynamic team with clear aspirations for rapid yet sustainable growth” says Steve, “I am really looking forward to utilising both my management and engineering skills to help grow the Company as it emerges into new markets.”

VIMA Group’s CEO, Dean Taylor commented, “We are delighted to continue to attract talented consultants with great public sector experience to the Group. Steve’s drive to succeed and in depth experience will hugely assist VIMA’s growth into the Department for Work and Pensions and the Home Office.”
