Director of Landscape Services
I’ve worked at Newground for 21 years delivering hundreds of landscape improvement projects that have helped to transform the places where people live, work and play. I’m passionate about providing well designed and well built spaces that people will want to use and that help them feel good about their local neighbourhood, town or city. As Director of Newground’s Landscape Services division I’m proud of the work that we deliver and know that the team are committed to providing a quality service resulting in happy clients and customers.
I’m a Chartered Landscape Architect having gained a degree and graduate diploma in Landscape Design and have worked in the landscape industry for over 25 years. I worked for 5 years in a private landscape architect practice prior to starting at Newground in 1993 leading a team of Landscape Architects. I became a Director in 2007.
What I do at Newground
As a Director at Newground I am responsible for the development and management of a team of staff delivering a programme of design and landscape contract work in excess of £1.5million a year. I help to develop the company’s yearly business plan and long term development strategy. This involves developing services that respond to the needs of our clients from both the private and public sectors. I also ensure that the landscape division work within our policies, procedures and management systems in order to retain our ISO accreditation for Quality, Environment and Health & Safety.
In my spare time
I’m a keen gardener and generally keep active through mountain biking, walking and going to the gym. Music is another interest of mine, both listening to it and playing it!
