So, who am I? I'm Scott Mathie and I'm the Director of the company. My background comes mainly from the uniformed services. At the age of 18 I joined the Royal Air Force and saw out my 9 year contract with them. I got to see many things that most don't which was fantastic. When I left the RAF, I had a short period of running a pub and B&B business in the North Yorkshire Moors, this was great experience but my 'dream job' came calling. I returned back to the Leicester area to join the Fire Service and I am still an operational Firefighter to this day. Due to problems in the Public Sector, I chose to start my own business to utilise my skills and I have now found that I enjoy the business side more that the Fire Service, This lead to me taking a part time contract in the Fire Service to grow the business. My plan would be to be able to leave the Fire Service behind and concentrate on the business full time.
What about the business? As I stated above, the business was formed due to the turbulent nature of the Public Secotor and the constant threat of redundancy. I had been involved in the industry for several years and knew that I could do things better. So I have organically grown the company to it's current positiion where we have multiple staff members fulfilling the requirements of both our own clients and we are also utilised by other companies due to our great work and services. We are always looking to move forward and offer new services to our clients and ultimately become a one stop shop for all of their needs.
