Meet the team: Neil Stevenson

By JR | Blog

Each month, we’re interviewing a different member of our team. This month we spoke to Director of Services, Neil Stevenson.

Neil Stevenson of Stevenson Heating Ltd


How long have you worked for Stevenson’s?

Although Stevenson’s is my family’s business, I didn’t join until 2013, following a 30-year career in the Met Police! At the time, my father Peter was still running the business with my brother Paul.


What does your role involve?

I am Director of Services, which means I’m responsible for bookings and the general day-to-day running of the office. I love dealing directly with our customers and helping them out.


What do you want to achieve in your role?

Stevenson Heating has been a well-known, reliable family firm in the local community for over 80 years. I want to continue its success and build on that for the next generation of customers.


What did you do before?

I joined the Met Police when I left school and spent a wonderful 30 years as a police officer. While in the Met, I did a law degree and legal practice course. I’m not a practising solicitor but the knowledge does come in handy for running a business too.


Tell us something we don’t know about you?

Since I joined Stevenson’s, I’ve qualified as an electrician, which comes in useful when talking to customers – and at home! We have other full-time electricians on the staff but I sometimes get called on to help them out with an installation.


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

I’m a keen cyclist and I’m also a family man. My three daughters still live at home, although one will be moving out soon. No doubt I will be called on to do some electrical work for her!


And finally, tea or coffee?!

Tea, without a doubt. Milk, no sugar please!
