Meet the leadership team

MYA is a flexible organisation, with a young core team, experienced senior management, and a network of industry consultants, all of who are directly employed by us. It’s the combination of experience and innovation that sets us apart.

As a company we demand the very highest standards, of security and confidentiality. Each of our project teams is bound by non-disclosure agreements. For peace of mind, all our consultants undergo enhanced disclosure and barring service checks (DBS).
