It may not be everyone's ideal job, working with their siblings, but luckily it works in our favour. Not only do we know each other inside out, but it means we communicate better - and more honestly - than most colleagues, which can only be of benefit to our customers! Here is a little bit about each of us…
The BMF in BMF! I am the Heating Projects Director. Since leaving school I worked alongside my dad Michael Freeman, the founder of BMF, as an apprentice Gas & Heating Engineer and maintenance engineer. From an early age Dad always encouraged me to pay attention to the detail, and really understand how things work. I soon realised I had a natural talent for all things practical and applied my skills to other heating avenues.
I am a qualified Gas Engineer , Hetas confirmed solid fuel and wood burning engineer (course passed with credit!), Plumbing & Heating engineer (G3 + Water regulations 1999 + Energy Efficiency for domestic heating) and last but not least A Trained Exhausto Fan engineer. I have also trained other engineers to get through their gas, water and heating qualifications. I now specify all heating work and run the teams of Plumbers, Hetas and Gas Safe installers to carry out your installations. I will be your first port of call for any heating related queries and will ensure that your project runs smoothly and efficiently.
Now a time served engineer and director I like to devote most of my spare time to my new family. The rest I like to spend in the mud competing in Enduros.
I am the Bathroom Projects Director. I spent many years as a child and teenager working alongside our father and was encouraged to develop my practical skills - even if, in the early days, it just meant building a boat out of 2 pieces of wood (at age 5!) Since leaving school I worked with our father, undertaking general plumbing and bathroom installations, before going off to university, where I studied for my print management degree and worked within the print and design industry for a number of years.
However, I realised I could use my design skills and previous practical experience to good use so I became co-owner of BMF before we opened our first showroom in 2004, and I developed the bathroom element of the business. On a weekend I can be found racing around a motor circuit or waist deep in the mud.
I am the financial director. I left school and worked within the Insurance industry until the birth of my daughter in 2001. After a couple of years I returned to work as a financial administrator for a nationwide childcare company. I have developed strong skills in customer service, financial management and tea making.
In my spare time I enjoy my roller-disco dance exercise and spending time with my lovely daughter.
