Our Team

Ben Giles
Managing Director

Ben has been in the waste industry since birth! His passion for environmental solutions began as youngster, where a demanding window cleaning round challenged his youthful glow. Since then, Ben has worked extremely hard to establish a local cleaning business in South, West Wales, specialising in trauma and bio-hazard innovations and continues to strive for solutions to all unplanned waste streams on a national basis through Ultima Environmental. In his spare time, Ben loves spending time with his family and friends along with exploring his new love for cheap whiskey!

Mark Baxter
National Development Manager

Mark is the 'font of all knowledge' waste wise, having lived and breathed waste since he finished his modelling career - And that was a very long time ago! Mark spent a number of years developing an accredited course for crime scene cleaning and was instrumental in establishing the NACSC - The National Academy of Crime Scene Cleaners. In his spare time, Mark is a local Rock n' Roll icon, playing lead guitar in the critically acclaimed band 'Wasted Talents.'

Pete Swanick
Operations Team Manager

The man who makes things happen! - Pete is the sergeant major of Ultima, making sure that the teams are working effectively, that all the kit is fit for purpose and that health and safety is at the forefront of every job we do! Pete also looks after multiple contracts and is the 'go to' man for all of our customers. In his spare time, Pete regularly attends the gym (keeping his 'guns' in check), but more importantly loves his holidays! We're told that Jamaica is Pete's favoured destination - 'Sun and Rum' being his only holiday criteria! On the occasional weekend, Pete can sometimes be found raving at a music festival with his mates, but if not, he will definitely be chilling with a rendition of his favourite film - 'The Goonies.'

Tony Killick
Trainer

Tony has been training with Ultima for over 6 years, he has a fantastic rapport with students and loves passing on his vast knowledge of reinstatement works, teaching how to remove flooring, cut into walls and become a master at using power tools. We can't excuse his terrible jokes but we do love having him as part of our training team.

Wayne Voller
Trainer

What Wayne doesn’t know about Health and safety isn’t worth mentioning! He thrives on making what some think is complicated – simple to understand, coupled with his background in the cleaning industry for over 30 years …. It makes for a truly great trainer. Always willing to help anyone, always looking dapper, and dripping with H+S credentials - Wayne is an integral part of our team.

client
Melvin Knapp
Trainer

You know when you meet someone who knows everything; Well, Melvin is that guy! We don’t mean on the subject of life the universe and everything… just Flies, Maggots and insects!! He knows what bites, what eats what, where they live and how long they will be there! A truly renowned boffin!! We are so glad he is there to bounce off and help teach our students the knowledge needed for pest control.
