Trevor Hirst

Operations Director

Trevor is a highly qualified and experienced Programme/Project Manager and Professional Engineer with a proven record of achievement set against 19 years involvement in the procurement environment, supplemented by a 24-year military background.

Trevor joined the company in April 2003 on completion of his military career which culminated with two years at the MoD’s procurement organisation in Bristol, where he achieved promotion to Warrant Officer Class 1 (WO1) in the Royal Electrical & Mechanical Engineers (REME) as an Artificer Vehicles.

Trevor has a very ‘hands on’ approach to the consultancy activities of the company and during his time in Quorum Trevor has supported and continues to support our client base on a vast array of projects predominantly as an Integrated Logistic Support (ILS) Manager/Engineer but also utilising his skills in the areas of Project, Risk and Safety Management, the development of Technical Documentation and the production of Training Needs Analysis (TNA). Trevor has also developed and delivered a number of ILS related courses for the company which have received excellent feedback.

As the Operations Director of Quorum Trevor’s focus is the strategic direction of the company and his role includes Business Development, Marketing, Quality and Human Resources. He is also responsible for the planning and managed execution of all current programmes. Developing into these roles has allowed Trevor to gain qualifications in Project, Programme & Portfolio Management, Business Studies and Employment Law – he has also recently gained a MSc in Professional Engineering.

Trevor enjoys keeping fit and is frequently seen pounding the lanes of the Shropshire countryside (running and cycling). He has recently completed a couple of half marathons and is presently training for a triathlon. Trevor is always looking for a challenge and as part of Quorum’s 20th birthday activities (September 2020), he planned to cycle from London to Paris in 3 days. The ride was cancelled due to COVID-19 but Trevor still managed to set a challenge fitting enough to mark the 20th birthday of Quorum. Throughout 2020 he will cover a distance the equivalent of ten trips from London to Paris by collectively cycling, running and walking a total of 2420 miles. If you would like to track progress, Trevor makes regular posts on the Quorum website (Cycling L2P) and the Company LinkedIn page (here) under the hashtag #cyclingL2P


Trevor is a very active member of the Institution of Engineering & Technology (IET) – he is professionally registered as a Chartered Engineer (CEng) and recently received recognition for his sustained high levels of achievement through leadership, senior responsibility, innovation and professional service at the forefront of engineering by being awarded a Fellowship. He now provides voluntary support to the IET in the form of coaching & mentoring professional registration applicants, assessment of fellowship applications and advice for Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

Additionally, Trevor is involved in a Property & Land Management business in Shropshire as a Director and Shareholder.
