A joiner by trade, Kevin has been operating in the home-improvement market for many years, previously owning his own businesses, and in later years working for Job Worth Doing – formally Zenith Windows.
Kevin has had the privilege experiencing different aspects of the industry in a variety of roles and is extremely proficient when it comes to dealing with homeowners and tenants, along with juggling the day-to-day needs of the direct client.
“I’m fortunate to have a wealth of expertise under my belt – having set-up two businesses; one to maintain and fit window and doors, the other was running a property maintenance and building business. At the time, we had contracts with with a major retirement home developer. Demands were high, and I was kept on my toes throughout the whole contract.”
Since joining Mila Maintenance, Kevin has already made strides towards review and implementing a variety of training programmes for Mila Maintenances’ staff.
“Training and ongoing development is a vital part of our industries success,” comments Kevin, “products and systems are evolving all the time and we want our business to be abreast of the changes and ensure our staff are competent in dealing with the needs of our clients and their customers.”
Kevin will oversee training needs and help support the company’s key values which have been designed to recognise the needs of their customers within the business. His role will play a crucial part in the business over forth coming years, evolving to the requirements of its clients.
Kevin enjoys property renovation in his spare time – “My wife and I, seem to always choose to move into properties in a poor state of repair. We enjoy putting our own stamp on them, improving the properties appearance, adding value. I get a great sense of satisfaction transforming a property.”
Spending time with the family is an important aspect in Kevin’s life, and he often enjoy walks on Brighton’s coastline, close to where he lives, or going away on holiday with them. “We love being by the sea, nothing beats the fresh air and sea breeze on a warm or frosty day, the sea has an almost hypnotic quality we love,” comments Kevin.
Kevin was a keen rugby player in his younger years but unfortunately had his rugby career cut short due to an injury. He now enjoys being a frustrated spectator watching the game, when time allows.
