Changes at WRAS
If you contact the WRAS Approvals team you may come across a few new names as there have been some welcome additions to the team. Mike Pugh and Nethan Nichols have recently joined the approvals team. Thomas Cook will be joining WRAS on 1st May as the new WIAPs Manager.
It is sad for us to say good bye to Gareth Harris (WIAPS manager) and Lee Brooks (Approvals Administrator), both of whom have been great members of the WRAS team. We wish them the all the best in their future careers.
