MEET THE TEAM

AB0A9507Tom

Having studied Mechanical Engineering and Leisure Tourism at Harper Adams University, graduating in 2004, I moved on to utilise my skills in historic property restoration and construction.   Despite being highly satisfying, coming from a farming background I wanted to return to land care and developing a landscape and forestry business, whilst utilising many aspects of my degree, gave me the opportunity to extend my experience.

I enjoy client interaction and offering advice and ideas, providing inspiration and alternatives from the norm.  I am usually the first point of contact with clients and if not actually working on site I will make regular visits to ensure continuity of quality.

Stepping away from work I like to race cars and spent several years as part of the Radical Sports Cars team where I was heavily involved with the research and development which enabled me to travel around Europe as part of the works race team.

Following in a long line of family members, including Grandfather John Bosley, I joined the racing world as an amateur jockey.  While loving the camaraderie and competitive nature of an amazing industry, after 12 years and over 100 winners I recognised that my love lay with the land, returning to my farming roots.

It seemed a natural progression to team up with brother Tom and old family friend Keith to start a landscape and forestry company.

Having been short-listed by JETS (Jockeys Employment Training Scheme) for the Richard Davies Achievement Award my case features in their promotional material and website as an example of a successful business.

I head our on-site team and have daily contact with clients ensuring tidiness, continuity and my ‘can do’ attitude ensures time-scales and deadlines are met.

I bring extensive experience and horticultural knowledge to garden design, landscaping and maintenance.  My sense of design and gardening have been strongly influenced by travel, specifically in Europe, California, New York, Canada, Singapore, New Zealand and Australia. Particularly inspired by English country homes, including properties such as Lechlade Mill, a listed water mill set in 8 acres, my innate passion for design and landscaping has been inherited from my family.

Having worked on a range of projects in the UK, I understand the necessity of treating each project individually, responding to the qualities and unique character of each space, and have a keen eye for detail.  I like to incorporate my interest for innovative design and technical ability in a variety of projects, both as a director of Ecological Landscape and also in previous roles at leading international landscape companies.  I have a particular interest in turning previously unusable spaces into enjoyable and functional areas.

Heading up the design, landscaping and maintenance teams mine is a key role in customer communication, keeping the projects to schedule and ensuring the quality is maintained.

When not designing gardens cycling, running, photography and travel are high on my priority list.

Having previously held various senior appointments, including Managing Director of the London School of Beauty & Make-up, Managing Director of the Philip Kingsley Trichological Clinic & Product Company between 1993 and 2012 and Senior Metal Buyer for Chamdor Metal Merchants in South Africa, I have also had experience within the commercial property market.

Relocating to Colwall from London, I continue to encourage the development and expansion of the London School of Beauty & Make-up and bring a fresh eye and insight to our developing business.

Whilst bringing a strong ‘can do’ attitude and excellent communication and leadership skills, I am joining the directors to focus on creating a strong business strategy and infrastructure whilst retaining the company ethos of friendly efficient service.
