MEET THE TEAM
We are a small, friendly team who take a personal approach to the way we handle business.
Customer satisfaction is at the heart of what we do. Take a look at our profiles below and see what we're all about!
Alex's background is in micro biology and he had a stint working for Earth Energy. He has always had an interest in renewables and started OHR twelve years ago in partnership with Karl Breeze (AV), buying Karl out and becoming sole director five years ago.
OHR has gone from strength to strength under Alex's guidance, gaining a reputation as a specialist renewable heating installer.
Alex enjoys spending time with his family, sport (in particular rugby and shooting) and of course working long hours!
Chief Engineer, Mentor & Business Development
Nigel has a wealth of experience in both conventional plumbing and heat pump systems. His particular strength is problem solving and attention to detail combined with a natural creativity. Nigel is the one we all go to if we have plumbing challenges!
Nigel keeps the team up to date with new technologies, innovation and works on business development projects with Alex.
Nigel enjoys riding motor bikes, surfing and currently he is building his own home.
Carolyn started with OHR nine years ago to help out for a few hours a week in the office and has seen her role evolve beyond all recognition.
Now running the servicing department and assisting with scheduling the teams of engineers, no two days are ever the same!
Carolyn loves time outside of work to ride her horses, enjoy sport and travel.
Susie's background is in office management and communications, and she joined the OHR team in January 2020 to support Carolyn and Alex with the growing demands of the business. Her role requires spinning many plates from dealing with the day-to-day running of the office, supporting the director, assisting with finance, HR, fleet management and marketing.
Susie’s interests outside OHR include time with her young family, long dog walks and dreaming about travel adventures - or at least reading about them.
Estimator & Contracts Co-ordinator
Sharon joined the growing team in November 2020 to assist Tamsin with the growing volume of customer enquiries. Sharon brings with her a wealth of experience from her previous role managing operations for a commercial contractor.
As well as organising customer quotes Sharon is responsible for issuing contracts ahead of system installations - she is our process and systems queen.
In her spare time Sharon likes to ride her horses and spend time with her family. She also enjoys eating cheese!
Tamsin joined the team in 2015 with a background in engineering and environmental studies, as well as being a qualified energy assessor.
Tamsin is responsible for consultation with customers, taking them through the design process to the production of a detailed quotation. Tamsin is passionate about customer service, and her special expertise is in historic buildings and their thermal performance.
Tamsin enjoys varied interests including Pilates, creative design and anything yarn related!

Heat Pump Engineer
Rob joined the team four years ago bringing his experience of working on a range of sites and completing his Level 3 qualification.
It's all in the detail for Rob - we are often complimented on his plant room installations and he is exceptionally neat and tidy which is no small feat on retrofit domestic installations.
Rob's interests include anything mechanical along with fixing up motorbikes and cars. He has also recently started a big renovation project on his new home in his spare time.
