Meet the team

Mark Chiverton

Managing Director

Mark Chiverton

The founder of OEMA, his knowledge on all areas “chemical” is undeniable (just don’t get him talking on it). Famous internally for saying “yes,… what’s the question?”. His affliction for saying ‘yes’ against all odds has left us with seemingly impossible tasks or timelines, however, it does serve as a lesson on how to achieve these goals –‘if it can be done it will be done’ is now our motto.

Nichola Baird

General Manager

Nichola Baird

OEMA’s very own Matriarch; her caring nature ensures all OEMA’s needs are met from coffee, to clothing, to sweepstakes, to Christmas decorations. Nic is the happiest member of the team flying in like a tornado, her singing leaves a little bit to be desired though. Knowing no boundaries, she is as happy presenting to the board as crawling through an oil tank.

Jason Coltman

Non-Executive Director

Jason Coltman

Our ‘big hitter’ Jason came on board to impart his years of experience, in not only the Marine industry, but business in general. Your all round ‘good guy’ he brings a calming influence on proceedings and core values. Life in the workplace can be dreary without humour and Jason brings his own special brand to the table, as a natural wind up merchant he keeps all of us on our toes. He’s a little too enthusiastic when it comes to his share of the cakes, but we can forgive him for that!

Amanda Chiverton

Finance Manager

Amanda Chiverton

The Queen of the books, Amanda is our very own ‘hawk eye’. Her ability to spot a missing comma from 30 paces is uncanny! For someone in accounts her mental arithmetic is highly dubious, but “that’s what calculators are for”.

Lora Ashford

Finance Assistant

Lora Ashford

Lora approaches everything with enthusiasm and professionalism but enjoys playing the odd practical joke! She leads the team on our ‘physical shake down’ each day, ensuring we all get our hips moving!
She may be small in stature, but she is most definitely big in personality, a delightful member of the team, who is always happy to help others.

Mark Kamester

Site and Warehouse Technician

Mark Kamester

Our friendly Technician always has a smile and a hug for everyone. He makes the workplace a happy place to be, often treating us to his vocal chords!
Great at accents and ticking things off lists. Always Health and Safety conscious Mark loves to overuse the horn on the forklift.
The most exciting point in the day is his announcement of the arrival of the Fat Van!

Mike Bartlett

Site and Warehouse Technician

Mike Bartlett

Mike is the ‘daddy’ of the Technicians, getting everything organised and in order. He is a wiz at tinkering with almost anything and can often be found ‘knee deep’ in gadgets and gizmos that he has invented. He is a man of many talents with a dictionary for a brain and an extensive knowledge of geology. He has a ‘unique’ sense of humour which takes a little getting used to, but it is what makes Mike, Mike!
Mike loves dancing and his snake hips, together with his dulcet tones and stylish shirt/ jackets combos are a sight to behold!

Rebecca Yousuf

Operations Coordinator

Rebecca Yousuf

Rebecca’s infectious enthusiasm has a positive effect on all around her. She is extremely hard working and takes everything thrown at her confidently in her stride whether that’s organising office socials, packing boxes or sorting out all our marketing needs. We all fear she may end up in a heap at the bottom of the stairs one day, as she moves at the speed of light!
Rebecca is obsessed with sloths!

Katie Howard

Operations Coordinator

Katie Howard

Katie is super organised and always has her head in a processing document or spreadsheet. She ensures the smooth running of the office and makes sure the rest of the team know what’s happening and where they need to be. A fun member of the team and a joy to be around. As Queen of the Process, Katie has implemented many of our workflow processes, usually calm and gentle but woe betide anyone who cuts a corner?

Jo Caws

Operations Coordinator

Jo Caws

A huge asset to OEMA Jo is naturally organised and ensures the smooth running of all critical calibration dates. As another spreadsheet lover, she keeps all things in order, ensuring high customer satisfaction. She has a love of live music, and she herself is a lively member of the team.

Gemma Winslade

Operations Coordinator

Gemma Winslade

Ensuring that all aspects of the office run smoothly and efficiently are top of Gemma’s priority list. Able to assist with various areas of the business, her true love is of spreadsheets and processes, which enables her to make sure that customers are always satisfied, and the rest of the team know what is happening. Gemma carries out all tasks with a smile.

Robert Baranyay

Laboratory Lead Scientist

Robert Baranyay

Robert is an integral member of our Lab Team, providing analytical expertise gained from many years’ experience. As well as his love of all things analytical, his passion for history and heavy metal music keeps us all on our toes! He also has a very unique style when it comes to dressing up for our charitable events.

Adriana Baranyay

Laboratory Assistant

Adriana Baranyay

Adriana is a much loved and essential member of our Lab Team. She assists in ensuring all aspects of the lab run smoothly and efficiently. Adriana is also a highly talented artist as well as a very ‘green fingered’ gardener, supplying the entire team with beautiful plants and flowers throughout the seasons.
