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 ...
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.
Get in touch with Keith at firstname.lastname@example.org
Loves: Football, cake & singing - not necessarily at the same time !
Hates: Low fat coleslaw, sprelling mistakes/bad grammar & computer software that doesn’t work.
Laughs: At rude words, the Monty Python team, Michael McIntyre, Lead Balloon, Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant and Eddie Izzard – particularly the “Death Star Canteen” sketch!
Wants: My own windmill – a big one - as well as a water wheel.
At the weekend you will find me: At the allotment digging.

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.
