Featuring in this week’s Meet Team R&B is Bryan Skipsey. Bryan joined R&B Group many moons ago as a technician and has maneuvered his way around the company before sitting with our senior management team as Operations Manager as he does now. Recently Bryan has been instrumental in rolling out our new equipment management system ‘Current’ and is always striving to better the ways we work at R&B Group. Bryan is our go-to man with equipment and logistical issues when they (rarely) occur and he prides himself on his lightning response to finding solutions. Though he still like to remain hands on and occasionally escapes the office to have a play with lighting fixtures on site. Here’s our Bry in a nutshell…
