Meet the Team

Jeremy Gear
Jeremy Gear
Director
I’m delighted to be able to introduce you to my team, of whom I’m very proud. We’ve come a long way since our company was formed in 2004, and I couldn’t do it without them. Our staff turnover is low, we’ve had our ups and downs but running a business like this is making sure that you have round pegs in round holes, and right now we are not far off! I’m confident our business will continue to grow, and as it does, I want my team to grow with it, not just in personnel but in the experience they gain and therefore can offer, we must continue to provide our customers with the best possible service. Our mission statement from day one hasn’t changed, you can see it here (link to follow). If there is anything we can do to improve our service to you, you can contact me with any issue, big or small, on 01935 700425 or jeremy@roofinggear.co.uk Here is my team……
Theresa Russell
Theresa Russell
Sales Office Manager
I joined Roofing Gear in 2006 after having a very small break away from the Roofing Merchant industry. Prior to this I spent 24 years working for a Builders Merchant with Roofing being my specialized chosen subject! Outside of work you will find me enjoying a glass of wine or two, and with a new house I’m painting, decorating and gardening! Multi-tasking is one of my strong points!

Pete Hodges
Pete Hodges
Sales and Logistic Support
Now in my second spell at Roofing Gear, you will find me working in pretty much every corner of the Yeovil depot. I jump from Sales to the warehouse, to the yard and usually I will be the first face you see when you visit. I make sure the lorry and the cabstar are both ready to load when the drivers get back, and it’s my job to ensure they leave swiftly in the morning. Outside of work my interests are music and sport, my football allegiance being with the Mighty Bristol City! Contact via email peter@roofinggear.co.uk or call 01935 700425
Dan Northam
Dan Northam
HGV Crane Driver
This is Dan our driver, if he can’t get it in, no one will. Dan delivers all of our Roofing Materials on the DAF 6 Wheeled Hiab Crane Lorry. Dan isn’t actually employed by Roofing Gear, he works for our sister company Haulage and Storage Ltd, but in reports in to us daily! We sub-contract out the lorry to others as well, so he wears two hats! We are delighted to have Dan on board, he’s the joker in the pack. But don’t mess with him, he has allegedly been known to cage fight in his spare time, that’s if he’s not on his motorbike. Dan can be contacted via the Roofing Gear office on 01935 700425, you can also see our Haulage and Storage Website at www.haulageandstorageltd.co.uk

Jane Gear
Administration Support
I get away with murder because I sleep with the boss! Well, he is my husband too! I joined the family business (on the payroll at least) in 2006. Back then it was to help keep up with the admin side of things, but as the company has grown so Jane Chandler and the HOF, Amanda take care of most of that. So it’s true, I have been relegated to clean the toilets, mop the kitchen etc, but you will also find me managing the companies various insurance policies, and the HR side of things. Outside of work I take care of our 3 children, albeit they are now old enough to look after me, but I do enjoy walking the dog, drinking fine wine, and eating fine food!
