LONDON, June 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Waterman Group is pleased to welcome Ajaz Chaudhri to his new role as National Frameworks Director. Based in one of the company's UK offices in Manchester, Ajaz's new appointment will see him take on a leading national role in the infrastructure and environment business.
His upcoming work will include developing and managing a portfolio of frameworks across the nation, for clients from the public sector, which include government agencies and local authorities, and from across the private sector. Ajaz will also be responsible for promoting the growth of important regional work streams in the Midlands, Northern and Scottish Regions.
