BPE has rounded off a year of growth with two new appointments.

Andrew Stevenson has joined as biochemical engineering senior consultant at the company’s North West office.

Andrew will be responsible for helping BPE’s clients on a wide range of projects, from front end design and manufacturing strategy to safety and simulation.

Andrew started his working life as a development scientist with Smith & Nephew as a graduate from UCL. During his enviable career in process engineering, which spans some 25 years, he has led on projects for the likes of Unilever, BP, Pfizer and Novartis Vaccines. Most recently he was head of secondary programmes at Seqirus.

He said: “For me the most rewarding part of the job is finding a technical solution to clients’ challenges and I’m looking forward to doing that with BPE. Having seen how the company is growing and making a real difference, I wanted to be part of the team. The company has a real variety of clients and projects, which I’m looking forward to working on.”

Antonios Gourdouparis is also new to the team and joins as a graduate electrical engineer. Originally hailing from Greece, Antonios came to the UK to study a degree in electronic and electrical engineering at Brunel University London before completing a masters in Nanotechnology and Renewable Energy.

He will be based at BPE’s headquarters in Hampshire, although he will get the chance to visit the company’s clients all over the country.
