01 Career history: I qualified as a precision engineer following a five-year apprenticeship. I joined the family business in 1980 and then purchased my own site in 1984, before joining forces with my brother in 1988 to facilitate expansion. We increased the group to eight sites. We built two blocks of apartments as well as renovating numerous properties while still operating our retail business. Currently, we have three sites, one of which, Woolmer Service Station, has just been completely redeveloped.
