I have been with M&M for around 13 years and work in the drawing office where we prepare all the drawings for our clients which are necessary for planning, building warrants and manufacturing. I work closely with the Directors, installation teams and factory operatives ensuring I have all the correct specifications and accurate measurements to incorporate into the drawings. I have recently been promoted to Drawing Office Manager which I and my family are extremely proud of.
I would swap my job with Millie (the office dog). She gets biscuits in the morning, chicken or beef for lunch everyday and mostly sleeps when she’s not socialising with all the staff. Oh and she gets a treat at home time when she finishes at 4pm and she gets a Friday off!
Bespoke, Quality and Top Class
My favourite project has to be the recently completed orangery we built for the Gleneagles Hotel as part of their refurbished Strathearn restaurant. I played a central role within the projects team for around 15 months where I saw the build evolve into what is now a stunning restaurant extension. Everyone involved in the project was delighted with the result and we received many compliments from different contractors. I was proud to be part of such an iconic project.
Greigo is my office nickname although I’m not entirely sure why! Moose to my ex footy team mates and friends..”are you a man or a moose.”
I hadn’t long started at M&M when I returned to my desk with a bowl of hot chicken soup, lost my balance and emptied the whole lot onto my desk, trousers, shirt and shoes with everyone in full view. It was piping hot too but in order to preserve any shred of dignity I had left, I had to try and play it cool. Not my finest moment but then there’s our work night out with maybe one too many wines! Hmmm, moving on.
Andy Robertson. The best player Scotland has produced in a long time, Captain of the National team and about to play in the champions league final.
Sir Alex Ferguson. He has done everything in the game and i’d love to hear some of his stories from his career. Having read his autobiography, he is someone i’d like to hear more about.
Family & Football. I played football for years and I now coach my son Keigans’ team and an under 17’s team. When we are not at football I enjoy spending time with the whole family.
I almost ended up playing for Middlesbourgh until the Scout that wanted me to go left Boro.
