Pizza, I could probably eat it every day of the week, a different type/toppings each day, but I try to limit myself to Saturdays with my kids.

  • If you could be an animal, what would you be?  

A Cat, carefree & lots of sleep involved, something I’ve missed since having children 😂

Low maintenance extra fluffy companions; cats. I’ve two, one I’ve had since he was a kitten and one my wife took in from her brother following a house fire.

  • Tell us an interesting fact about yourself?    

I flew a plane before I drove car. It was a 13th Birthday present & it was brilliant.

  • Any funny anecdotes you would like to share?   

I fractured my arm by cycling into a stationary car while learning to ride a bike.

  • Why do like working for Ascendancy?  

We learn all sorts of things about different industries, nice colleagues & environment, challenging/complex puzzles to solve

  • What is the favourite part of your job?  

Problem-solving real-world issues that help a business to grow or recover from an unexpected change.

  • Any secret talents?      

DIY, since moving to Newport I’ve had to take down an internal wall & door then build a new wall where the door used to be, cover an old fireplace hole in the living room, repair internal ceilings where the joists weren’t properly attached. Still on my to-do list for 2020 is a bathroom suite, Dining Room floor & kitchen conversion. It’s just another type of problem-solving really.

  • What is your favourite thing about Shropshire? 

The greenery, rolling fields & woodlands with some lovely places for a walk with the family.
