Chris & Mel Celebrate 10 Years with Hawkins

Hawkins would like to congratulate both Melanie Cole and Chris Dennis on celebrating their ten year anniversaries with our company.

Chris joined Hawkins’ Birmingham Office in 2010, while Mel joined the Bristol Office in the same year. They have both have a hand in managing their local offices; Mel serves as our Bristol Office Manager, while Chris is the Regional Manager of the Birmingham Office. Mel ensures the Bristol Office is organised and running smoothly, assisting our investigators in the West Country. In addition to being responsible for his office, Chris has investigated fires, explosions, escapes of water, and other engineering losses all over the world.

Mel is pictured above demonstrating how to receive a socially-distanced gift from Russell Smith, Regional Manager of the Bristol Office. And though Chris says he usually tries to stay behind the camera, he is pictured in full PPE on both the roof of Riga castle (above) and inside a man-basket within a fire-damaged container ship alongside its operators (below). Congratulations Mel and Chris, and thank you both for all your hard work!
