How long have you worked for Passivent? 8 years in total but with a 10-year gap in between!

What are the key aspects of your role? I like to get involved in all aspects of the business but particularly enjoy attending joint meetings with colleagues and assisting clients with their ventilation requirements

What do you enjoy the most about your role? Refurbishment projects are always interesting and providing bespoke solutions for these buildings always throws up several challenges!
