30 July 2016 Email this article

So, Russell, how long have you been with Facelift and what is your role? 

“I have been with facelift for two years, I started as a depot manager but I have recently been promoted to a regional manager looking after Purfleet,Hickstead and Ashford, which I am sure will bring its challenges but I am looking forward to this new and exciting time.

How did you get into the plant hire business?

I worked for Kier Plant and Galliford Try and was also plant manager on the Olympic 2012 project. I also obtained the appointed person accreditation for working on cranes.  Since joining Facelift, I put two years hard work into Purfleet depot and I am very happy where it is today as to where it was when I took it over. I have just been rewarded with the promotion which I am very happy about

 What do you enjoy most about your work?

I just love working for Facelift. I get on very well with the whole team I enjoy the working ethos and the culture.  I think we have a great MD in Paul standing and a very good chairman in Nigel, them coupled with a very strong senior management team means a bright future for Facelift, I am sure.

What do you see as the challenges and opportunities for the industry in the future? 

The challenge is for Facelift to become the number one provider and I really believe this can and will happen.

What's been the most enjoyable / satisfying job you've completed? 

Every job we complete is very satisfying I have recently acquired the contract for cleaning the B&Q network in the UK so I am very happy with that.
