Fire safety specialist Exova Warringtonfire, part of the global testing group Exova, has named Leigh Hill as its new general manager for the UK as the company expands its specialist services to customers worldwide.

Leigh, who has worked in the business for 15 years, will lead teams specialising in reaction to fire and fire resistance at Warrington and security testing at Willenhall.

His experience spans research and special projects, certification and business development across Europe.
