Phil Ham, Managing Director of Envireau Water, took pleasure in announcing that Deborah Thomas, Senior Hydrogeologist is the winner of the 2018 Envireau Water ‘Celebrating Success’ Award.
During December, Envireau Water staff were invited to nominate a member of the team whose efforts and achievements they wanted to recognise. Using this input, a panel of judges made up of Envireau Water’s Board of Directors decided that Deborah should receive the accolade as she has gone above and beyond her job description and had a positive impact on the company.
Since joining Envireau Water in 2017, Deborah has proven herself to be a valuable addition to the team; with a professional and enthusiastic attitude and the ability to deliver high-quality technical work.
Deborah has embraced Envireau Water’s team building and charity activities, from participating in this year’s 20 miles for 20 years charity hike, to volunteering with the local community group. As a keen baker, our team is spoiled with homemade treats at birthdays and celebrations.
As well as her role at Envireau Water, Deborah is heavily involved in the geological community. She currently sits on committees for both the Geological Society East Midlands Regional Group, and the newly formed National Early Careers Network. She participated in the 2018 Geological Society Early Careers Award and represented the region at the final held down in London.
Deborah has also worked to promote Envireau Water to the industry as she shared her experience and expertise at various conferences such as the Contaminated Land and Groundwater Conference, and spoke to students at the Geological Society Career and Industry Day about what a career in Hydrogeology entails.
Reflecting on winning the award, Deborah commented “I am thrilled to have been chosen by my colleagues to win this prestigious award. Working at Envireau Water provides fantastic opportunities to get involved with extra activities both within the company and the wider geological community. Being part of such a supportive team at Envireau Water makes all the difference!”
