With a strong desire to enter industry early, I side stepped University to start my career with AMEC Construction, as a trainee quantity surveyor and then spent 4 years working on various London projects including the Hilton Hotel Sloane Street and St. Bartholomew’s Hospital. During this time, I completed my Chartered Institute of Building exams. In 1994 I joined TAG Retail, a design led retail shop fitting contractor and was later appointed as commercial director, having grown the business from £2m to £10m. I joined Denne Joinery in 2005 and now lead sales and commercial activities. It’s a fantastic role encompassing all the operational, commercial and customer interactions, which I love.
Outside the office, I’ve coached junior football teams and hold an FA Level 1 coaching badge as well as being a school governor. These days, I enjoy watching all things sport, especially my team Arsenal, spending time with my wife and 3 kids, taking the dog for walks and family meals and events.
