Both leaders in their field, Tony and Francois bring a wealth of industry experience and insight strengthening further an impressive and effective Board of Trustees headed by Chairman Ian Tyler.
Voluntary Service Overseas in the Solomon Islands introduced Tony to construction at an impressionable age. A degree in building followed, after which he worked for contractors and Clients in the UK, Africa and the Middle East. After working on Minster Court for Bovis and the Prudential he joined Argent in 1989. He has since delivered over £900 million of construction. Quality, time and cost controls are all absolute givens. So are team work, repeat business and no legal disputes.
Tony was Chairman of the Design and Build Foundation from 2001 to 2003 and a leading instigator of the new ‘Be’ organisation representing over 2,000 members of the built environment.
Francois has been working in creative solutions and content marketing for over 15 years and has a real passion for innovating, developing and delivering quality commercial projects that exceed expectations.
