Matt brings a wealth of testing experience and leadership to Element. He most recently served as Senior Vice President, Commodities - Europe at Bureau Veritas, an international certification agency. After starting his career at the British Standards Institute, Matt joined Inspectorate, working internationally in the Americas in a number of operational and commercial roles, eventually heading up their global oil services business. Matt joins the Element Executive team and will report directly to President & CEO, Charles Noall.
Charles Noall commented: “Our Oil & Gas and Infrastructure team is the leading provider of high-quality testing services worldwide. We are beginning to see some early signs of a limited recovery in the oil and gas market and the addition of Matt to the senior leadership team will ensure that we are fully prepared for this market development and to support the much wider geography and service portfolio we have in place today.
“His ability to deliver results, alongside his deep knowledge of the testing sector, will play a crucial role in helping us realise our vision to become the world’s most trusted testing partner.”
Matt Hopkinson said: “I am proud to be joining a business of the calibre of Element. Having witnessed the company’s extraordinary transformation over the past few years, I look forward to working closely with my colleagues in the leadership team and across the organisation to lead Element into a new phase of success.”
