21st May 2024

This month marks a major milestone in the life of one RTC employee, Sarah Hart, Director of Operations, who has dedicated 25 years of exemplary service and unwavering commitment to our company. Since joining us in 1999, Sarah has been an invaluable asset, contributing her expertise, dedication, and passion to various facets of RTC.

A Legacy of Impact

Sarah commented: "It has been a privilege to be part of the RTC journey for the past 25 years.  I joined as a Project Manager in 1999 when RTC had just 18 staff. During this time I have witnessed both the opening and closure of the Regional Development Agencies, the opening and closure of the LEPS,  RTC’s first and last European projects, Brexit and the massive change in working practices forced upon by the Covid pandemic. 

"It has been quite a journey!" 

CEO, Jamie Ollivere, expressed his pride in Sarah’s contributions:
