Our Team

Alexandra Ashton

Alex splits her time between being both Rob’s assistant and Arbtech’s credit controller. She is in some way involved in 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 many of our internal business processes.

In previous roles, Alex has been PA and project administrator to the global logistics director at Northrop 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.

Alex has been it us 8 years.

Robert Oates, director says:

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. She does an amazing job as credit controller and with her PA hat on, keeps me neatly in line.
