My Sewell journey began in 2008, starting as a Construction Manager, then Project Manager, before moving into Facilities Management. I then moved across to lead our construction sister company, Illingworth & Gregory in 2020, and have now returned to Sewell FM as Managing Director.
You have to be very flexible to work here and you are left to do your job, which is great.
There isn’t a hierarchy of management, so you do everything to the best of your ability and your expertise and knowledge is trusted.
Our culture is about being a team player, professional and doing the right thing by our customers. There is a huge customer focus and we live by these values both internally and externally.
We stand by them and we don’t deviate. We hold our nerve and we pride ourselves on working with clients who have a mutual alignment with us. I think clients appreciate that openness.
From my time as a Project Manager in Construction, delivering Bransholme Health Centre from start to finish was a standout career highlight for me.
Logistically, it started in one of the busiest shopping areas in the city and the building was the footprint of the site. It was right in the middle of the community and we worked with great people, so it was a pleasure to do.
To achieve zero defects at handover in a building of that size was fantastic.
One fact you may not know about me: I’m a serial house builder in my spare time and always looking to create that perfect home. I have built three houses and remodelled one over the last 10 years.
