Biography
Born into the world in 1978, I joined the company in 2003, currently the Company Chairman, I’ve been a director of Carpenter Oak’s finances since 2006. I’m passionate about employee ownership and developing people. We can deliver projects of exceptional high quality without compromising on our principles. I qualified for my Private Pilot’s Licence in 1999 and spent three years serving his local community as a member of the Devon and Cornwall Police Special Constabulary. Serving as treasurer of his local athletics club, I once found myself entering for, training for, and completing the London Marathon. I loved it, but have no idea how I got talked into it and have no intention of ever doing it again! 

I’m married to Mike, living in Dawson City, Yukon, Canada. We spend much of our spare time coping with one boisterous dog whilst enjoying hiking, rafting, skiing and soaking up the 24hrs of sunshine in the summer.
