meet the team
After leaving the Army in the 80’s Peter carried on a career in and around the Security Services, which of course in those days was void of too much legislation, however standards were always and still are at the forefront of his service ethos.
In the late 90's, Peter moved full-time into the commercial sector
in security and worked for one of the top 3 Facilities Management Providers in the UK. Starting at ground level and moving on to head up their Security Retail Sector, Peter looked after clients such as Amazon, M&S, H&M, 3M and many more well-known brands.
He now has the privilege of running a growing family business, calling on past experiences within the FM and service sector and the experiences of his sons Samuel and James. He can generally be found rolling up his sleeves to ensure service delivery and customer focus is paramount.
James has extensive experience in the property and facilities sector. Through property management, property investments, construction, property sales & lettings and project management. He also owns one of Southampton's most up and coming Estate Agents, Edison Green.
Loyalty, integrity and delivering service to the highest standard are important attributes to James, as well as priding himself in having an eye for detail and a forward-thinking mind set. He sees solutions and opportunities where others may see the end of the road, something that has been a trait in his professional career.
Adopting the same entrepreneurial spirit as Peter, James has always aspired to use his skills to develop and build a successful company. Being a strong networker James has brought with him a range of long standing connections across the property, financial and legal services sectors. James’ focus is on the commercial strategy and development of EDI across its portfolio of services.
