MEET TEAM R&B – Barry Fox

 

The ‘B’ in R&B, Barry has lived and breathed the company since it was merely a twinkle in his eye. The rudder of the Operations side of R&B, Barry is our go-to guy for staff and logistical planning. Whether it’s taking key decisions with his co-director on the next direction of the company or delivering a projector to a customer who needs it in a hurry, no task is too unimportant for our fantastic Mr Fox! Here’s what makes him tick…

He's the B in R&B!

He’s the ‘B’ in R&B!

NAME: Barry Fox


JOB TITLE: Operations Director


AGE: 55


DESCRIBE YOUR AVERAGE WEEK AT R&B GROUP IN NO MORE THAN 50 WORDS:

Meetings, meetings, oh and more meetings, liaising and assisting our Projects and Operations teams. But I can be driving trucks, installing and operating shows too!


WHAT THREE THINGS DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB/WORKING AT R&B GROUP?

  1. Working with such a dedicated, professional team of people
  2. The variation of work and new opportunities the team bring in
  3. Sailing this BIG ship on a day to day basis, while drinking loads of tea, of course

HOW DO YOU LIKE TO RELAX?

Well, I love cooking! So it generally involves a kitchen or restaurant. Reading and watching cooking programs too (usually Rick Stein and James Martin).


WHAT’S YOUR PERFECT MEAL?

This is like a continuation of above… Coquilles St-Jacques (Gratinéed Scallops) or Moules Marinieres followed by classic fillet Steak au Poivre or Sole Meuniere, or maybe a good old Cassoulet – all washed down with a nice glass of wine. No puddings though, thank you!


IF YOU COULD HAVE ONE SUPERPOWER, WHAT WOULD IT BE? WHY?

Invisible …need I say more?


IF WE GAVE YOU £10,000 TO SPEND IN ONE HOUR, HOW WOULD YOU SPEND IT?

Who’s we? It’s it’s R&B Group giving me £10,000 then I would give it back and invest it in more equipment for the business!


TELL US ONE THING WE DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU.

I’ve played keyboard, guitar, saxophone, drums and scuba dived… but not at the same time!
