Alex Painter

Asbestos Manager - John Lewis Partnership

Alex joined the asbestos industry as a trainee site Analyst in 2010, after completing a degree in Environmental Sciences.

Following qualification as an Analyst he worked on a number of complex abatement projects in the UK, as well as in Uzbekistan, before training as an Asbestos Surveyor and naturally migrating into Client Management. Over the following decade Alex oversaw complex abatement and survey projects, including a large package of works in The Gambia for one university client and a number of large packages of work for well known UK brands and public institutions. He completed his CoCA with merit in 2017 and was subsequently appointed Deputy Technical Manager, alongside his on-going consultancy work.

In 2019 he was invited to join the board of Adams Environmental and served as one of 3 directors until the business was bought out by Environmental Essentials in late 2022.

In 2023 Alex moved across to the client side of the industry, as Asbestos Manager for the John Lewis Partnership, where he manages asbestos compliance for a portfolio of circa 550 buildings.

He is also a founding member of the fledgling Asbestos in Retail Group (ARG), a group of asbestos managers in the retail sector, sharing knowledge and expertise to drive up standards.
