Alex splits her time between being both Rob’s assistant and Arbtech’s credit control officer. Her touch is felt by almost every project that comes through the door and though you may never deal directly or speak with her (unless you’re late paying!), she is responsible for the ninja-like efficiency of our internal processes (with a little help from our super-sophisticated IT system).
In previous roles, Alex has been PA and project administrator to the global logistics director and aNorthrop Grumman, a facilities management group. Combining that experience with her meticulousness, she brings a lot to the table. If you do have the pleasure of speaking to Alex at some point when you engage us to support your project, you’ll find her to be friendly and outgoing. She’ll give you a warm welcome and either direct you to the right technical expert (she’s not an ecologist or arboriculturist, after all) or arrange to call you back having solved your problem herself.

What Clients Say About Alexandra Ashton
I really like Alex. She’s is a great person to have in the office. Apart from anything else, it’s fun to see her and Alan wrestle over which radio station we will put up with/enjoy on any given day. Alex did ring some alarm bells in our first interview, when she said ‘I love spreadsheets’, but luckily for Arbtech, we let that slide, and the rest is history.
