Levent joined the company in October 2015, bringing with him 15 years’ experience in the M&E Building Services sector. He has an extremely successful track record, and his network of high profile clients in London and the surrounding counties trust his judgement implicitly to source and submit the perfect candidate. Roles include Project Managers, Engineers, Estimators, Quantity Surveyors, Bid & Procurement Managers to Site Managers.
Prior to crossing over to the contractor market, Levent spent a number of years working within the consultancy side of the building services sector and possesses a strong understanding of the pre-conceptual and design phases – and he is keen to utilise this area once more.
A single parent of three children, down time is understandably a rarity, however on the upside Levent can now converse with any mum (or dad), at the school gate, about the intricacies of single-handedly raising children. Stolen moments are spent letting off steam at the gym or boxing training with his son, giving him precious time away from the challenges of raising two teenage girls. Born and bred in North London, Levent is an avid sports fan, particularly boxing and football, and is a die-hard gooner and a proud season ticket holder.
