Rob

Managing Director


Department: The final decision.

Education, Skills, Qualifications, Experience: I qualified as an electrician in the early eighties and later added refrigeration and gas qualifications. I have over 30 years running small businesses and set up Abraxas in 1998.

Hobbies and Interests: I play golf with enthusiasm if not skill and enjoy different types of fishing.  

Likes: I love travelling and going on cruising holidays. I like eating out, the cinema and reading a good sci fi book.

Wendy

Director


Department: Accounts 

Education, Skills, Qualifications, Experience: I spent a brief period of time at catering college where I learnt a thing or two about preparing great food and hearty meals. Being a mum and having raised two amazing children I’ve learnt many things along life’s journey too!

Hobbies and Interests: : I enjoy yoga, meditating and cooking, although this doesn’t include baking! I like country walks with my mad cockerpoo, Molly and taking my jag out for a spin with its roof down! (I would say I enjoy the wind blowing through my hair but its too short to do that!)

Mike

Sales Director


Department: Sales, Marketing and Promotion of all the great things we do!

Education, Skills, Qualifications, Experience: I have spent 25 years in the hospitality industry and 18 years in the catering design and supply sector. (I know I don’t look that old!) I have a HND in hospitality management, qualified pastry chef and a member of the Institute of Hospitality.

Hobbies and Interests: I’m a fan of Worcester Warriors Rugby, scuba diving, proud dad and a qualified volunteer first responder for West Midlands Ambulance Service.

Richard

Sales Manager


Department: Project Sales and Design

Education, Skills, Qualifications, Experience:I’ve been in the hospitality industry for over 17 years, working in the catering design and supply sector. My earlier background was in engineering design, which has certainly helped with the trickier technical aspects of kitchen design.

Hobbies and Interests: I do enjoy keeping fit – be it the gym, hill walking, cycling, and I scuba dive regularly in the UK (when it’s warm enough). The keeping fit also helps with my one of my other interests – socialising and eating out!

Mark

Engineer


Department: Service

Education, Skills, Qualifications, Experience: Gas Safe registration, City and Guilds in consumer electronics and farming and agriculture.

Hobbies and Interests: I have a love of Land Rover vehicles, in fact any vehicle! You could say I’m car mad!

Likes: I like spending time with family, whether that’s at home or out and about. I also like socialising with friends and eating out!

Dave

Engineer


Department: Service

Education, Skills, Qualifications, Experience: I have a City & Guilds in Electrical Installation and Refrigeration.

Hobbies and Interests: I really enjoy astronomy and studying celestial objects and phenomena. I really enjoy anything to do with land rovers too whether that’s driving them off road or tinkering around under the bonnet!

Likes: I love spending time with family and friends, exploring new places together and chilling out at home with a good BBQ (but only when the weather is good!)

Julie

Sales Administrator


Department: Sales/Administration and anything else that is thrown my way!

Education, Skills, Qualifications, Experience: My 10+ years working in Sales and Administration, as well as raising a family, has helped me understand and appreciate things from ‘both sides of the coin’ when it comes to good customer service.

Hobbies and Interests: I have a rescue Cocker Spaniel, Merlin, who I love to take on long walks, especially when all the ‘boys’ at home are watching sport! I also love to upcycle furniture in my spare time, taking something that is about to be thrown away and give it a new lease of life!

Tony

Office Administrator


Department: Office

Education, Skills, Qualifications, Experience: I went to College and studied art and photography (HND level 5).

Hobbies and Interests: I like to play the guitar and I’m a big art and football fan! In my spare time I like to play, and watch snooker, go fishing and play poker with friends.

Likes: I am currently going through a midlife crisis and recently started to ride motorbikes. I enjoy watching most motorsports, football (Spurs), and taking part in a little fishing, pool and poker. I do try and play golf too and I do emphasize TRY.

Tom

Installations


Department: Service

Education, Skills, Qualifications, Experience: I’m currently training to become a Gas Engineer, since moving from admin/sales role within Abraxas to working within the service and installation department, which I find really interesting. 

Hobbies and Interests: I enjoy swimming and keeping fit. I’ve been a keen snowboarder since I was young, and try an escape to the Alps once a year with my friends (I hope to continue this until I’m old and grey!) I’m a big fan of Moto GP and love anything to do with motorbikes, especially going out for rides on my own motorbike.
