Swansea-Based The Premier Group Appoints New Manager to Team


The construction division of The Premier Group, a national specialist in high-spec construction and maintenance work, has welcomed a new managerial employee to its team.

Gareth Cadmore, aged 32 from Cockett, Swansea, has recently joined the company as contract operations manager. Cadmore will be responsible for overseeing the successful completion of projects undertaken by the construction division of The Premier Group.

Cadmore is from a Forces background, having served 12 years in the Royal Navy, most recently in senior roles involving the management of facilities, projects and training. He was selected by the Swansea-based firm as the best candidate to join the company for his outstanding leadership and development skills, and managerial experience.
