Director/Senior Drainage Engineer
Jon ventured into the world of drainage when he began his career as a plumbing and drainage apprentice at the tender age of 18, and has continued in this field for 32 years.
His initial position was with a company owned by a family friend working on drainage maintenance projects for council properties in East London and a 9 month drainage renovation and repairs project for St Thomas’s hospital. After several years learning his trade with time-served engineers, Jon became a lead drainage engineer for various drainage companies and in 1998 he and Angela became owners of a well-known plumbing and drainage franchise.
Despite having a team of 16, Jon preferred to be ‘hands on’, his love of all things drainage-related keeping him out on the road supervising the drainage engineers or filling in on jobbing when short-staffed.
In 2007 he and Angela sold their franchise to start Capital Drainage. Jon’s current role is to supervise the drainage engineers, manage and oversee repair and installation projects, maintain equipment and fleet as well as being hands on jobbing when required.
