Meet the Team
Doug is particularly proud of the industry recognition that Principle has received over the years. From Premises & Facilities Management awards to multiple prestigious Golden Service awards, each is testament to the team’s achievements and continued improvement. A particularly special award however, is Doug’s Lifetime Achievement Award from the 2016 European Cleaning Hygiene Awards, confirming his and Principle’s reputation and influence beyond the UK.
Outside of work, Doug is a keen sportsman: enjoying skiing and refereeing rugby in the winter and windsurfing in the summer. He is also the grandfather of 3 energetic little grandchildren who still laugh at his jokes, although we’re not sure for how much longer.
Indeed, Peter’s drive to achieve service excellence through continuous improvement have led to some of Principle’s most innovative initiatives and solutions as well as long term, trusted client partnerships thanks to his hands-on and personable approach.
If you ever have the pleasure of chatting with Peter, we recommend asking about his trips to both Antarctica and the Arctic, areas he has travelled to numerous times where he has had some fascinating experiences.
A former professional golfer, Matt has the enviable talent of being able to turn his hand (or foot) to most sports without issue.
David has a private pilots licence and spends quite a lot of time flying around the UK as well as the occasional hop over the channel. His specialist subject on Mastermind would be the Watergate scandal, 1971-1977.
Lilia is mother to a teenager, so you know her negotiation and mediation skills are top notch. She also regularly goes back to her native country of Portugal, to see her family. But also because the beaches are much nicer.
Tom is a family man, with two small children who understandably take up a lot of his spare time. When he does get a moment, he enjoys escaping to the fairway for a few rounds.
A man of patience and attention to detail, Terry is a successful DIY enthusiast who also enjoys a good walk through the English countryside.
The high level cleaning sector is indeed a perfect fit for David, he’s an avid Watford FC supporter so is very used to experiencing the ups and downs.
A dad to two small children, when he does get a moment to himself, Alex enjoys a craft beer or two and a cathartic session on his drum kit.
