CEO

I’ve been the CEO of The Werks Group since the project back started in 1992. Alongside this, I have worked on other projects including consultancy projects, regeneration, design and some extremely effective business support. I’m a trained woodcarver so love to make things with wood & I keep fit by walking, running & yoga. I have also recently edged towards a veggie diet which keeps my family amused!

CCO

As CCO, I am passionate about developing and offering great working environments for all our clients. I am a designer and researcher in the area of creative entrepreneurship. I have set up and run start up, regeneration and consultancy projects as well as writing business courses for Universities. In my free time I like to go sailing, spend time walking my dog along the South downs or getting muddy on my mountain bike.

SITE MANAGER

I have been with The Werks Group for the previous 6 years - starting out as a receptionist. As my role has developed, I have began travelling between Brighton and Hove to visit most of our sites. This allows me to chat with our great clients across all sites. What I love about the job is that no 2 days are the same and I am regularly kept on my toes! My love for music keeps me young at heart and I love to go see live bands of varying genres from Queen's of the Stone Age to Corrine Bailey Rae.

SALES & MARKETING MANAGER

Having started as an apprentice back in 2015, I have developed over the years into the role of Sales & Marketing manager. I am a huge football fan and have a keen interest in travel – spending 6 months backpacking across South East Asia in 2019. You will find me tucked away in my office at Werks Central or running around Brighton & Hove doing office viewings!

MAINTENANCE MANAGER

Having been in the building industry for over 30 years there is almost nothing which I can’t build, fix or put back together. I have been with BMC and The Werks Group since it started in 1992, and there were times I had to be inventive when budgets were stretched. I love my work because we have a great team and great clients who appreciate what we do for them: no two days are ever the same! Sport is my passion, but football is my favourite.
