After studying construction and then working in the industry for several years, Mark set up Risby Homes in 1993 to pursue high quality residential development with a customer focus. As Managing Director, Mark is responsible for scoping out new sites for our future developments, and making sure everything is running smoothly across the whole business.
In his spare time, Mark is not to be messed with. He’s studied martial arts for many years, and has achieved a black belt in two disciplines!
Keeping it in the Barrett family, it’s Olly’s job to make sure that all of our houses are produced to the same high standard by checking that care and attention is given to every element of the build process. Olly’s worked in house building for 15 years and counting, and he loves being able to spend extra time with our customers in the design stage to create fully personalised family homes.
You might catch him out and about in his Croc shoes – don’t say we didn’t warn you.
