Lisa Hathway, Regional Manager 

Is there a phrase that sums up your professional ethos?

Integrity is everything, especially when it comes to our environment.

What’s led you to working for GGS?

I simply could not pass the opportunity to work with the leading experts in continuous ground gas monitoring, and to lead our new southern office in Milton Keynes. GGS’ values of integrity, quality and trustworthy align closely with my own.  It’s very clear that everyone at GGS upholds these values.

What’s the best thing about living and working in Milton Keynes?

Where to start?! It might be the 2500 hectares of green open space, or the 200-miles of Redways (dedicated cycling and pedestrian paths) that are accessible to every resident and visitor in Milton Keynes.  I’ve lived here for over 25-years – everything I need is here.

What are you looking forward to accomplishing at GGS?  

Building on our existing client base and delivering local expertise and quickfire assistance. Also, supporting my team to grow and develop as the next generation of experts.

How do you let off steam when you’re not working? 

I’m happy when I’m outside and I love cycling, so I’ll be either out riding or training indoors during the winter months. Cycling is good for my health and wellbeing, and it’s good for the environment.

Is there a phrase that sums up your professional ethos?

Integrity is at the heart of what it means to be a successful and trusted geo-environmental specialist. Success does not come from what you do occasionally, but from what you do consistently.

What has led you to work for GGS?

Over the past six years I have been working as a Field Technician for a variety of environmental consultancies. This year, I graduated with a BSc in Natural Sciences and I felt ready to take the next step in my career and look for a more senior position in the industry.

I came across GGS upon reading that they were the first to develop the industry leading GasSentinel®. It was obvious that this was a unique geo-environmental consultancy that was vehemently dedicated to providing innovative and cutting-edge services to clients, and from whom I could learn a great deal.

Tell us a rare fact about yourself.

I used to be the lead vocalist in a band that played shows throughout the UK. We even played at the O2 Academy in Islington!

Is there a phrase that sums up your professional ethos?

There is a quote by CS Lewis that has always inspired me: “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.”

What has led you to work for GGS?

While being a stay-at-home mum to my four daughters for over 20 years I decided that I really wanted to work in the environmental sector. I started doing an environmental degree with the Open University with the hope of working in environmental monitoring or regulation. I met Lisa through the Women in Business network and her I am!

What’s the best thing about living and working in Milton Keynes?

I love Milton Keynes. It is an interesting and diverse place to live. It has been a great place to raise a family with all the benefits and amenities of a city, but with lots of green space to enjoy, much of it within walking distance or a short bike ride away. We are far more than concrete cows and roundabouts!

How do you let off steam when you’re not working?

Before starting to work for GGS I regularly volunteered at a local educational and historical charity, something that I hope to continue moving forward as I found it very rewarding.
