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
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!

Martin Edwards
Martin Edwards
HGV Crane Driver
Martin Edwards is an ex-spy and has decided to call it a day with his 007 lifestyle - and drive lorries for a living! New to the industry we chose him because we know he’ll be great with customers, he’s a strapping lad, strong as an Ox and will be a great asset to Roofing Gear In his spare time, you’ll see him splitting logs in our yard, looking after his chickens and his sheep, and plucking pheasants! He became a friend of Roofing Gear when he collected pallets from our yard, we didn’t know his name at the time, so we called him Earth Man. Martin (Bond) drives our crane lorry and will assist with Cabstar deliveries too and help out in the yard.
