Retirement for Cambria Legend Wynn James!

Following a long and successful career, it is with warmest wishes that Cambria announces the forthcoming retirement of one of our founding Directors, Mr Wynn James, who will be stepping down at the end of March.

Wynn started Cambria with our other (continuing) founding Director, Gary Mitchell, twelve years ago and they have enjoyed a fantastic dozen years together on a brilliant adventure.

For those of you who know Wynn, he is the eternal Peter Pan, always full of life and enthusiasm, always has time for people and a friendly ear, and nobody at Cambria has ever seen him without a smile on his face.

For those who know him really well, he will have likely topped your wine glass up demonstrating surface tension with a reverse meniscus, and you’ll know it’s not just the Cambria table that will miss him sorely at all of the South Wales construction events.

A brilliant Structural Engineer from the heart of Carmarthenshire, his professional career has seen him in London, Gibraltar, Plymouth and finally (sort of) home to Cardiff. Always interested in all parts of the project, always helpful, pro-active and working tirelessly. It’s not just a loss for us, but all his colleagues and the clients and teams he’s worked for and with over the years.

Cambria has a new management team ready and eager to pick up the baton, but for the moment, we thank Wynn and wish him every happiness and all the relaxation (difficult to imagine) possible in his well-earned retirement! Good luck!
