The Walker Beak Mason Partnership has been providing independent expert acoustic consultancy to our clients since 1970. With this 50 year milestone comes some changes to the people within WBM.
Dr Paul Cockcroft worked with the original partners Dr Angus Walker and Colin Beak from 1989, taking up the position of Partner in 1997 and becoming Senior Partner in 2004, with Rachel Canham and Dr Richard Lyons joining as Partners in 2009.
After 20 years of managing and driving the business forward Paul has decided to step down from his role as Senior Partner. Paul will continue to act as a consultant to WBM until he retires fully in April 2022, to provide continuity on projects.
Rachel and Richard will remain as Partners, to run the business, ably supported by Dr Robert Storey as Senior Consultant, continuing to provide the excellent consultancy service WBM is known for with specialised acoustic input to support your projects and businesses.
Other changes include saying goodbye to Hannah Karban at the end of March 2021, who has relocated to be with her fiancée near the East coast.
In April we appointed David Littlewood as our Graduate Consultant and welcome him to the team. David has a keen interest in all things acoustic and has recently completed his MSc in Acoustical Engineering at the University of Southampton.
WBM would not be what it was without the excellent clients that use our services and we take this opportunity to thank you all for your loyalty and trust. We look forward to providing you and all our clients with a first class service in the years ahead.
