Meet The Team

We’re passionate about what we’re trying to achieve, but we'd like to think that we don’t take ourselves too seriously either. Introducing some of the people who make L'atelier happen ...


Keith Hearnshaw

Sales/Marketing Director

A founding Director of L’atelier, Keith heads up our Sales & Marketing operations and handles all client-facing work. With 21 years of sales experience his approachability, positive attitude & excellent communication skills are second to none. We attribute our high repeat business & referral rates to Keith’s dedicated approach & after sales care.

Loves: Football, cake & singing - not necessarily at the same time !
Hates:  Low fat coleslaw, sprelling mistakes/bad grammar & computer software that doesn’t work.

Richard Nussey

Technical Director

Got a question about...well, anything? Richard’s your man. Unless it’s football, then Keith’s the one to ask. Another of the founding Directors, Richard manages L'atelier's Technical Team. A wise old owl with 30 years experience in the engineering industry, Richard’s wealth of experience makes him indispensible. He can tell you anything about any building he’s ever visited, but always forgets to take the tea bags out of the tea. Has a habit of breaking spoons when he’s stressed.
