Meet Ally, Tecsew’s Director and wife to John! Ally is the first point of call when a potential client gets in touch and does everything apart from product designs and production.
Ally's background is in Finance so when joining the company formally as Director in 2006 she had a lot of learning to do about the Marine Industry. She's now an expert and is passing her knowledge on to the rest of the team alongside John.
Ben aka 'Benjo' is our prized Production Manager who came to Tecsew as a fresh-faced apprentice back in 2016, after completing his BTEC Extended Diploma in Mechanical Engineering. Ben enjoys a spot of fishing when he is not working hard as our lovable production manager and is always on hand to help.
Owen aka 'the Brummie' is our dedicated CAD Designer whose typical day includes meeting clients, going to the marina to measure our clients' boats, and design superior Tecsew products. He is a University of Portsmouth Alumni and will often spend his weekends playing his beloved guitars.
Gail is our superb Head Machinist. Having spent many years working for Tecsew, Gail is not only in charge, she is always willing to take new machinists under her wing and show them the ropes. Her knowledge and expertise encourage all and we would be lost without her.
Calvin has taken over from Bruno as our installation manager going out to clients' boats to measure and fit their bespoke products. He is going far in his budding career with Tecsew and his dedication to his new role is next to none.
Leah joined #TeamTecsew in Summer 2020 when the world was upside down; in the last year she has grown Heritage Garden Canvas into the successful sister company that it now is. She's a force to be reckoned with! Determined, Hard Working and Dedicated- Leah is a credit to the team and we are glad to have her! When Leah is not working, she will spend every second she can with her little boy Reuben.
James joined us in November 2021 as a trainee CAD designer working alongside Owen meeting clients, going out to marinas to measure and design our superior products. In his spare time, James enjoys riding his bike whenever he can; he even cycled up Mont Ventoux once and always makes time to watch his favourite movies.
