Emily Grant

Regional Director

I moved to Plymouth for University and never left! After various roles, I joined Environet in 2015...

I am Environet's Regional Director for the South, based in Plymouth. Originally from the Cotswolds, I moved to Devon over 15 years ago to study at the University of Plymouth. After completing a BSc in Environmental Sciences, and a Master’s Degree in Sustainability by distance learning, I began my career in the Construction Industry in 2007.  I trained as an asbestos consultant and clocked up a serious number of miles travelling around the South West, before taking up a Regional Manager's role in a national asbestos consultancy, overseeing a team of 18. 

Looking for a new challenge, I joined Environet in January 2015, excited to transfer my skills to the subject of Japanese knotweed, while extending Environet’s professional services to clients, both commercial and private, across the South West region.  In my role as Regional Director I oversee a team of dedicated sales and operations managers who in turn provide our customers with an outstanding service. I form part of the Senior Management Team who drive the business forward year on year, making Environet one of the largest and most successful knotweed specialists in the UK. In my spare time I’m kept busy with a young family; I love the outdoors, cooking and entertaining friends.
