Envirolab Invests Into the Future with Two Senior Leadership Appointments


Envirolab Group is continuing to strenghten its nationwide position as the largest Australian owned and privately operating environment laboratory with two appointments in February. 

Envirolab Group has announced two appointments to the company's management team. Luke Witham has started in the new role of National Business Development Manager, while Phalak Inthakesone has commenced in the role of Sydney Organics Development Manager.

General Manager, David Springer said the new appointments would further strengthen the quality of environmental testing and the range of testing services.

"Luke and Phalak are highly regarded in the industry and their extensive knowledge and experience in their respective fields will strengthen Envirolab's position as a leading Australian provider of environmental testing," said David.

"Despite the nature of the highly competitive market that we are currently operating in, I am pleased that we have attracted two high calibre team members who will help us deliver our ambitious objectives as we continue to invest into the future." 


Luke Witham - National Business Development Manager
After having spent his first week at our Envirolab Darwin office, Luke brings to the team a wealth of industry experience and a successful track record implementing strategic plans across various market segments and achieving significant organisational growth.    

Luke has previous experience in Environmental and Mineral laboratories in Australia and overseas in locations, including Indonesia, Malaysia, and Russia.

As part of this new role, Luke will be predominantly based in Sydney and will work closely with all State Lab Managers and Business Development Managers to ensure on time results and the highest quality service. For any further information, email Luke.


Phalak Inthakesone – Sydney Organics Development Manager
With over 20 years of experience in Organics, Phalak will be responsible for the development of new organic methodology, starting with Perfluorooctane Sulfonate (PFOS) and Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA). 

PFOS and PFOA are part of Perfluorinated compounds (PFCs), which were widely used in a variety of consumer goods from non-stick kitchenware to waterproofing clothing, leather and furniture. PFCs have also been used in commercial and industrial products including firefighting foams, paper products and food packaging.

Based on their extensive use in the past and resistance to normal environmental breakdown, PFCs are an emerging contaminant and can pose a risk to human and environmental health. For further information or testing enquiries, email Phalak or call 1300 424 344.
