Meet The Team
Managing Director (Major Project Manager)
Gary founded Newey Installations many years ago, an advocate of efficient working to lower costs. His skill set ranges from a qualified electrical engineer through to designer and CAD. Gary is very much a hands-on MD, not afraid to pull on his overalls and get stuck in, whilst still remaining very customer focussed. He is an avid skier, and still plays regular hockey.
Jo has been the backbone of the company for many years, knows where everything is and is also very experienced with a background in planning control and health and safety, providing IT and HR support. Jo has managed the finance through our organic growth periods, ensuring we keep our suppliers integrated and paid on time. Jo also loves to ski, choosing to retire from Hockey, but spends many hours in the gym.
Commercial and Operations Director (Project Manager)
Calvin joined in early 2016 as General Manager to oversee the transition of Newey Installations and manage the company’s growth. He is a dedicated customer service champion who is also not afraid to get stuck in, such as cleaning windows in Soho at 2am on a Saturday morning to ensure a smooth opening of a new Dental Practice. A qualified Tae Kwon Do instructor with a season ticket for his football team.
Tom is Gary and Jo’s youngest son. Tom has spent the last 12 months working within the business, learning how to complete successful projects. Tom is very active in ensuring our electrical certification is up to date, whilst successfully growing our retail client base. Tom will eventually take over as MD. Like father, like son he is a qualified electrician, who also plays regular Hockey at a high level. Skiing is also a favourite pastime.
Workshop and Project Manager
When asked how long Dave has worked for Newey, he isn’t really sure. Dave has a huge amount of experience in the joinery and shop-fitting industry, normally having the solution for any problem, being the ‘go-to guy’ within the company. Dave’s passion is fishing and rallying, often disappearing on the weekends to be by a lake or a gravel track.
The newest member of the team, Julie was tasked to help Newey introduce new systems and processes. Julies experience in construction-related companies will be invaluable as we step up to the next level of Health, Safety and training.
Julie is a health freak and like Jo can also be found in the gym most evenings in her favourite spin class.
As a highly qualified finishing joiner, Jason made a decision to qualify in site management five years ago, this was great news for Neweys. He became available soon after and has run many successful projects since his arrival, such as completing the installation of two new surgeries in three days within a noise abatement area. Jason has spent the last year converting a narrowboat into a houseboat, he had to pull on all his skills and experience for this project and the results are incredible.
Ray’s background was in facilities management and refurbishments, a highly respected manager who is well liked by his clients. Ray was recommended to Neweys by a client, and very soon it became clear why. With a southern region responsibility, he has the uncanny knack of delivering every time and on time, often to be seen on his phone in Harley Street ensuring the project is on time. A football fanatic, Ray will travel Europe attending football games, but loves to be with his family whenever possible.
