Name: Deb Davies-Tutt
I am the Operations and Marketing Manager for Ashwells, with twenty years in public service behind me I joined Ashwell in 2010 having been drawn to the company and its ethos and especially the potential of the wood itself. This has taken me all over the country, clambering under jetties, scaling piles of timber, and stroking beautiful sea distressed timber, learning all about the history and provenance of the timber they reclaim.
I am inspired by businesses with a strong environmental ethos. I believe this type of business will have a prominent place in future markets. I also have a great interest in business through collaboration. I believe, 'We are instinctively social beings so I believe we are stronger, happier and consequently, more productive when working together'.
I have a strong interest in the social sciences, with a First Class degree in Psychosocial Studies from Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge and a Diploma in International Welfare and Social Policy. I am also a qualified teacher with a keen interest in developing apprentice schemes within the company.
