Norman Smith

I joined Contego as Managing Directer in 2018 and have seen the company grow from strength to strength since then. I started in pest control as a child, helping my father with pest control in our small mining village. I am confident that Contego will continue to grow and become the biggest brand in the industry within the UK.
