The managing director of one of the Midlands fastest growing engineering consultancies has been appointed onto the East Midlands Reserve Forces and Cadets Association (RFCA) Leicestershire and Rutland committee.

Eddie Mewies, of M-EC Consulting Development Engineers has taken on the role of employer ambassador, with specific responsibility for voicing the needs of local employers and how opportunities for reservists and cadets can be created within the regional business community.

“M-EC has been supporting and actively promoting the Reserve Forces for over three and a half years, culminating in the business receiving Gold in the Employers Recognition Scheme recently,” explains Mr Mewies.

“I’m now delighted to be able to extend this support by sitting on the county committee  and hopefully encourage further collaboration between Reservists, Cadets and East Midlands businesses.”

Richard Cole, Chairman of East Midlands RFCA’s Leicestershire and Rutland Committee, commented: “As a supportive employer of reservists and an active member of the business community, Eddie’s input to the working of the committee will be invaluable. We look forward to benefitting from his experience and advice.”

In his role on the Leicestershire and Rutland committee, Eddie meets three times a year at military, business and civic venues across the counties. The committee comprises around 30 people, including representatives of the regular and Reserve Forces, Cadet organisations, county councils, business and local communities. M-EC employs Reservist Private Rosie James as an environmental consultant in its noise and air quality division.
