Before joining McCartneys in October 1999 I spent some 20 years in the construction industry as project manager, responsible for building numerous projects ranging from a small domestic extension unto a 1.3 million vehicle sales / maintenance complex.
Based at our Ludlow head office I have helped consolidate and expand the business and develop the surveying department of McCartneys. My previous knowledge and experience has strengthened the department, which now provides a planning, technical and administrative service to a wide range of building / development projects.
Married to Annie in 1985, we’re both from farming families, our two sons Jim and Matt have long since left home to pursue their careers, Jim is now a helicopter flight Instructor having done an apprenticeship in aero engineering, Matt is a mechanical manufacturing engineer having done an apprenticeship with a Hereford firm and completed a company sponsored degree in engineering and with whom he is now employed.
I like nothing better than getting outside at the weekends and evenings. There’s always plenty to do – logs, lawns, a large garden with river and all the maintenance that goes with it, plus walking the girls (dogs). I enjoy shooting, especially with the boys – it’s nice to have a common interest and get out from under Annie’s feet – she does B&B – Hell’s Kitchen is on TV – I don’t need to watch it as I’m frequently in it!! The barn is my RETREAT!!
