LOC Group Appoints New MD
Jonathan Britain has been appointed as Managing Director of LOC Group’s London operation.
Jonathan Britain joins LOC having previously headed-up Bureau Veritas’s UK industry division. A mechanical engineer by background, he brings with him a wealth of operational management expertise. Prior to Bureau Veritas, he worked for GL Noble Denton, Germanischer Lloyd and Advantica.
