Richard Barker our Director was awarded his MBA at the Millennium Centre in Cardiff in May 2013. Richards’s dissertation on employee empowerment and innovation within Housing was based on a high number of housing organisations and existing clients providing invaluable information and Richard would like to pass on his thanks to all concerned.
Beverly Barker our Director has passed her Level 1-2 Certificate in Creative Techniques and Interiors at Writtle College. She will now be undertaking her Degree in Interior Architecture and Design-Commercial & Residential, which we wish her all the best with. PMCDE have long had an ambition to do more interior design projects and within the foreseeable future we will be looking at launching our new service.
I was employed at CNH as one of four team leaders who were responsible for managing the day to day operations of responsive and void repairs, PMCDE had been brought in by CNH EMT to show it the way in transforming the business.
Due to the departure (emigration back to South Africa) of the R&M Manager (Colin Fearn) a position on an initial 6 month interim basis was advertised internally, I applied along with two other team leaders and to my delight was confirmed into post to work with the PMCDE team in supporting the changes required into transforming the business.
My immediate Director (boss) was to be Richard Barker, from my initial meetings with Richard back in August 2012, I could see the drive and determination that he had in “getting the job done” his no nonsense approach was what the company had needed, from day one there was clear direction in sharing the “way forward” with me ensuring I was not just part of the decision process but was actively involved in making serious decisions that would affect the business peoples lives.
I recently completed a dissertation on employee innovation within Housing. It’s a subject which I’m passionate about and would like to thank all those organisations and housing professionals who were involved within the process. To find out more about our approach to employee innovation within housing and other sectors give us a call.
