Brian Berry, Chief Executive Federation of Master Builders


I worked closely with Janet between 2013 and 2015. As both HouseMark and ConsultCIH are separate businesses owned by CIH, our task was to align our commercial strategies in a complementary manner, share business intelligence and find opportunities for joint working. What could have been a difficult relationship was actually a constructive one due to Janet’s combination of strategic thinking, calm commercial judgement and partnering skills. It was a pleasure to work with Janet.Over this period I had the opportunity to observe Janet in action and I was very impressed. Within a challenging housing market, Janet has led on CIH’s corporate B2B commercial strategy, bringing together different teams and aligning a complex portfolio of products and services. Janet also brought a greater customer-focus in terms of the design and delivery of CIH commercial services. She gets things done.I would have no hesitation in recommending Janet to any organisation that is looking for an energetic, committed and honest person with exceptional commercial expertise and good judgement.
Ross Fraser, Chief Executive, HouseMark


In the 20 years I've known and worked with Janet, I've found her to be a highly focused, sure-footed sales professional. Her goals are always ambitious, based upon thorough research and understanding of business opportunities. A terrific networker, with well developed organising and leadership skills and a disarming personality, she also brings a highly ethical view to her work. The result is someone you can rely on, who gives more than you expect and who you can trust to have the future of the business and needs of her colleagues uppermost in her mind.less
Keith Wilson, Technical Information Director at RIBA Enterprises Ltd


I have known Janet for almost ten years. In her capacity working in a variety of roles at RIBA Enterprises she has always been hugely knowledgeable about her industry, product and service. Listening to potential client’s demands and issues is crucial for delivering them value. Janet is excellent at this. Always ensuring that if issues are raised they are addressed. Janet proves that there are sales professionals that understand the reality of the industry rather than painting a "sales" picuture.
Andrew Jackson, Marketing Director EMEA at Shaw Contract Group


I have had the pleasure of working with James over the last 2 years in the PLATO Sustain peer-peer learning programme for SME senior managers. Clearly a dynamic leader, he has happily shared his experience with others, especially on robust techniques for growing business and on several operational issues. An astute operator, James highlighted the impressive financial and environmental merits of his company's roofing system with the group and shared other valuable insights on effective business protocols. 

Overall, it has been a pleasure work with James and I wish him and his company every success in the future. I have no hesitation in commending his strengths as a leader in business and the products of his company to others who may wish to engage them.
Gary Foster, Business Sustainability Leader and Catalyst


I have known James since 2007 when he hired me to assist in mentoring his UK Head of Sales and later to provide interim services at Sales Director level. I have come across few leaders with James's all round executive abilities which far transcend the usual industry typecasting. He has that rare extra key quality so often missing in leadership of personal engagement with all levels in business. Good capable people are drawn to work for and with James.
Harry Hayden, Director at Pharos Security


Hi James, Just a short note to thank you for all you’re your hard work, pulling together the events of the last couple of days. It really was first class, and set the bar for the future.Many thanks and well done.
Mike Crook, Chairman SPRA
