Oliver Madge

Oliver has worked in the Pest Industry for over 20 years and in that time has seen a number of technical developments, changes in attitudes and legislation for the use of pesticides and has been involved with many projects to raise the understanding and awareness of the need to control and manage pests.

Oliver became an industry tutor during 2004, becoming a member of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) as well as NEBOSH qualified for Health and Safety requirements. He is an RSPH examiner and City & Guilds tutor for Aluminium Phosphide and has recently become a LANTA instructor for pest courses.

Understanding how knowledge and skills can be delivered directly to those people who need to know at the point-in time they need to know it, continues to be one of Oliver’s ambitions.

Oliver has also been one of the professional advisors for many media sources, including Watchdog, Rogue Traders, Radio 4, BBC World News and The One Show.

Chris Parmiter

Chris studied Zoology at Cardiff University and after graduation took up a research post at the nearby National Museum of Wales working on a number of Ecology projects, eventually culminating in the publication of a paper on Biodiversity.

It was at University that he had his first experience of commercial pest control with a residential post studying insect pests with the Forestry Commission at their Alice Holt research centre in Surrey, but it wasn’t until a few years later that a chance sighting for pest control surveyors cemented his new vocation in public health pest management.

After success as a Technical Consultant, Chris quickly moved on to the position of Branch Manager, and latterly Regional Manager, for one of the leading national servicing companies.

Following on from 8 successful years in the servicing side of the Industry, Chris spent nearly a decade in the post of Divisional Director, running Barrettine Environmental Health, one of Europe’s leading Manufacturers and Distributors of pest control products into both the public health and agricultural sectors.

As well as his experience of the Product and Distribution market, Chris is a highly experienced Field Biologist and regularly conducts inspections into food and other high risk commercial sites. Audits can be carried out to conform to external audit body requirements (such as BRC, AIB etc) or to act as an independent assessment as to current pest provision.

Chris is a member of the Society of Biology and is a Chartered Biologist
