He enjoyed his new job so much that he decided to buy the West Berkshire franchise. Jon has previously worked for Vodafone in Newbury, A-Plan Insurance and the AA in Thatcham. Jon has a genuine passion for customer service and enjoys interacting with his customers. Working alongside Jon is Matt Crockford who joined the business in the summer of 2015.

He serves on the Association of Professional Independent Chimney Sweeps (APICS) steering committee; bringing a wealth of knowledge and experience to the company. Peter is also business advisor and mentor in his role as franchisor. Jon, Matt and Peter are members of the APICS and work to their code of conduct.
