George Tolley Director of Operations


How long have you worked for Stevenson’s?

I joined 12 years ago and did my apprenticeship with them to train as a Gas Safe installations engineer. I then became a technical surveyor, before moving up to Installations Manager and now Director of Operations.


What does your role involve?

I look after the operational side of the business, ensuring everything runs smoothly and that the engineers are supported with their training and development. I’m still a qualified and Gas Safe registered engineer, so, I can still help out with installations when needed!


What did you do before?

I was a duty manager at a leisure centre and before that I delivered first aid training for the British Red Cross. I’ve always enjoyed a hands-on role.


Tell us something we don’t know about you?

I am also known as Lieutenant Commander George Tolley (SCC), Royal Navy Reserve. I’m responsible for training new Commanding Officers of cadet units in London. It’s something I’ve been doing for around 15 years and I love it because I get to use my training, development and coaching skills here, as well as at work.


What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working?

I love the outdoors and keeping fit. I play football, go running and to the gym.


And finally, tea or coffee?!

Oh tea, definitely!
