I see my role as a supporting one for the whole team, it’s nice to have confidence and trust in my colleagues who are all aware of the ethos and standards that we work to within Closewood. Doing the correct things in the correct manner. Most companies in our industry can install a system in a reasonable way, for us it is more than installing air conditioning & ventilation systems it’s about being able to give something back, outside of our normal business. Therefore, we engage with numerous charitable organisations, provide the time for all colleagues to become involved in fundraising, look at ways to improve our sustainability and take care of our environment. Helping all colleagues to develop their skillset and knowledge is something that gives me great pleasure and can make a big difference for each individual.



What was going to be a stop gap before travelling has turned into a project, using my skills from my time at Uni and achieving my degree in Business & Human Resources, has enabled me to really delve into the employee and employer branding at Closewood. We have made huge strides in our environmental and sustainability challenges and it’s nice to be working on things that wouldn’t be considered the norm within our industry. We are always looking to get involved in charitable events, Different events that allow the whole company to be involved with, raising money for worthwhile causes. This is also something that I am championing it’s always nice to be able to give something back.

Hopefully one day I will get to travel the world, for now I will just have to keep whipping out the suitcase for those holidays in the sun.


I enjoy getting involved in all things air conditioning, with my main role being estimating for installation projects. I consider new technologies including environmentally and energy efficient equipment when tendering any project. I take pride in what I do and ensure that good workmanship is something we always strive to achieve at Closewood.

When I’m not working I like going for a ride on my mountain bike and getting muddy. One of my most memorable experiences on the bike was being part of a charity cycle ride through Burma. Although it wasn’t very muddy it was certainly extremley hot and humid.


I am a passionate and driven Engineer who has forged a career within the air conditioning industry working my way into a role off the tools and involved in both business development and project management.

After having sometime away from the industry, I followed my other passion in life - playing bass guitar. In the end touring became a little like being too old to be working on site so, I am back picking up from where I left off with Closewood and relishing the opportunity to be a part of a great team.

I thrive on being able to assist in the development of engineers with ongoing training and support. Building new relationships with clients and reconnecting with old acquaintances, the ability to communicate at all levels and always looking for the best solution in every situation is key. A pro-active nature means that I can adapt quickly and ensure that the client receives the best possible experience. Be happy and feel free to come and say hi.

No better feeling than providing fantastic customer service is something that I have taken great pride in throughout my career. Nothing is ever perfect and dealing with unforeseen issues is something that I will deal with head on, getting a resolution that suits the customer and keeping them informed along the way. My role at Closewood is a varied one which I am thoroughly enjoying. After being at my previous employer for 29 years it was a worry to walk into a new company and role, I was made to feel so welcome and supported both personally and professionally.

I am passionate about developing customer relationships and will always go that extra mile to ensure 1st class service. A bit of a rock chick at heart but then do like a bit of country and western yeee ha 🤠🤠🤠


I keep getting told I’m the old boy of the company, but when you enjoy what you do, it keeps you young. With age comes wisdom and I enjoy being able to share my knowledge, helping develop young employees into exceptional engineers.

I have seen so many changes within the industry but what we offer at Closewood still centres around good practice and workmanship. With a combined 100+ years experience we're experts in the field.


I am an experienced engineer and will solve any air conditioning issue that gets thrown my way. Whether it be finding out why a system has gone down or figuring out the best way to run a pipe route through a congested area on an install project.

2022 has seen me move into a more technical role supporting colleagues, customers and on-site engineers.

Outside of work you can catch me at sea, sitting in my kayak tackling fishier problems.



+ all our great engineers! Stuart, Sam, Jack, Josh, Alec & Ryan!
