Dean Draper

Role

Production Manager

I have been in Joinery since the age of 16 when I was an apprentice bench‐hand joiner and get an absolute thrill of seeing ideas turn into drawings which then turn into stunning bespoke joinery.

I have 32 years of joinery experience in manufacturing and install and love to offer ideas and solutions to clients’ joinery needs.

I am married to Shelley and have a wonderful Rhodesian Ridgeback called Ruby whom we both love to walk.

My interests are wildlife, football, and boxing.

Anthony Brannan

Role

Projects Technician / Site Manager

In 1998 I started a full modern apprenticeship in carpentry and joinery. During my apprenticeship I represented yorkshire in carpentry competitions against the rest of the U.K. I'd progressed to foreman by age 23 and my first job consisted of converting an old school into 11 apartments. I joined PEC in 2011 and soon after started running jobs as a site foreman. Since I have been at PEC I have received an NVQ level 3 in site supervision and have completed many contracts as a site foreman for many of the company's high profile clients.

Outside of work I enjoy lifting weights, playing the drums and spending time with my family.
