I am one of the owners of Bailey and I am mainly involved with operations and finance, however I do get involved in all other areas of the business – I’m very hands on.
A typical day is one that is very varied! From emails to calls to meetings, with a lot of travel thrown in, not to mention trying to keep calm about things beyond my control like traffic and flight delays!
It’s so rewarding when we deliver a stunning looking building to all stakeholders’ satisfaction. I love the humour and laughter of colleagues and working with my family.
Keeping in touch with the team and having my finger on the pulse while being away a lot can be a challenge. I overcome this by utilising video conferencing and other modern communication, although it’s an art I am still very much learning!
Always keep positive and invest and trust in your team. Face your challenges head on and don’t shy away from doing what needs to be done.
And never give up!
None that are repeatable!
Roast beef, Yorkshires and roast potatoes with thick gravy and a lemon cheesecake for dessert.

I enjoy spending my spare time with my wife and children.
African safari, scuba diving and crewing on a Tall Ship across the Atlantic. Oh and getting my pilot licence!
Everywhere I haven’t already been.
