Best part of your Role: Helping the apprentices grow into competent and professional tradesman, I take great pride in seeing them become confident in their ability. It’s also deeply rewarding to see these guys giving back to the business and their local community using the skills and values they learned here at Roddy’s.
Hobbies/What I do for fun: I love to challenge myself by learning and doing new things that are outside my comfort zone. Last year I took up Toastmasters as I have a genuine fear of public speaking, this hasn’t been my greatest success to date… I also took up CrossFit and attended a few personal development seminars. I Love all sports, I am a raiders fanatic but most of all I love spending my time with my wife and children.

Best part of my Role: Plain & simple “The Challenge “ It’s the satisfaction of working through the complex projects with our guys & seeing the great end results.
