Meet the Team at the Oceanair North

Tony Evanson

Managing Director

Although Tony trained as a Refrigeration engineer it’s a long time since he’s been on the tools. You can often find him involved in technical issues and bespoke designs, as he can’t help himself. Tony started the business in 2002 and has steered the company throughout. He has finally admitted he can’t play golf and prefers 'putting' the miles in on his road bike.

Sarah has been with the company right from the start in 2002, she also worked with the team for 7 years before that. A committed Aston Villa fan that left Birmingham because she hates flyovers. Sarah is the go to person in the company when technology doesn’t work. She loves taking her two huskies out for a run as well as riding her pinarello road bike.

Lisa Woodcock

Area Sales Manager

Lisa comes from a rich heritage of refrigeration and air conditioning; her Dad has had over 40 years in the business and her uncle 30 years. Lisa started her career on the trade counter and has progressed through the ranks. Her enthusiasm and positive attitude is a breath of fresh air for her colleagues and customers. Lisa is well known for liking it warm in the office, we always know when summer has arrived, as she will be down to 2 fleeces when the rest of us are melting.

Adrian Fleet

Spares & Logistics Manager

Adrian is quite literally our resident magician, as well as a reputation for conjuring spares out of nowhere he is often working weekends entertaining parties up and down the country. New members of staff are frequently astonished by Adrian’s slight of hand. Adrian has been known to enjoy the odd beer and woe betides anyone who gets into a pub game with him.

Roly is an old hand with renewable energy systems, having spent the past 9 years as a director of a heat pump installer. As our new Air to Water specialist, Roly is available to help all our installers at every step of the process, whether that be sales, design, installation and commission, to navigating complex paperwork systems, annual servicing and troubleshooting.

Ness Gurner

Sales Admin
Ness started at Oceanair roughly 3 months after her partner Roly. She works at home with Roland part time to complete heat loss calculations, assist with MCS administration and quotes. You would think that this takes up all of Ness's time yet she still enjoys fun outdoor activities such as paddle boarding, running and canicross with their lovely dog Milo!

Karl Anderson

Area Sales

Karl joined us here Oceanair a few months ago and it's safe to say he's fitted right in.

Karl is a people's person and is able to talk to almost anyone, so don't hesitate to give him a call!

Monika also brings the sunshine to her garden with an exceptional green thumb, supplying the office with lots of delicious treats.. no complaints here.

Bartek Kubisiak

Spares Admin

Bart is Adrian's right hand man and the two of them have a few tricks up their sleeves. From causing havoc in the office to delivering parts, it can be very hard to track Bart down. Typically we can find him in the warehouse helping Richard with the heavy lifting or you can find him out and about on his bike, soaking in the sunshine.

Reshma Jobanputra

Specialist Sales Spares

Reshma is definitely the most sensible in our spares department, keeping Adrian and Bart under control! She has worked in various service industries and I think this comes from her people's person personality. Reshma joined us here after working with Fujitsu General for 10 years as a customer service supervisor within their spares department, so I think it's safe to say she's a bit of a spares guru!
