Robert MarshallManaging Director
My motivation for this role comes from my previous experience in management at Concept group and Canon UK. I was involved in nurturing a team of four sales and two trainee sales professionals. This was all about encouragement, guidance and demonstration of how it can be done. This was my passion, seeing the potential growth in people gave me the buzz to succeed. I have lived in Arbroath for over 23 years. I have four wonderful children: Clare, Kirsty, Tristan & Luc. I spend most Saturdays with the twins who are 9 years old. We enjoy riding our bikes along the beach. In my spare time I enjoy exercising at the gym and running. I am a member of the local running club. I am now a counsellor and psychotherapist, also a peer regional coordinator for SMART recovery in the Tayside area. In this role I support group members struggling with addictions and empower them to use tools to aid their own recovery. I am passionate about my own personal development and lived experience, difficulty with substance misuse gives me the knowledge and understanding that is useful when helping others.
Peter BenisonSales Director
Hi, I’m Peter, I live in Dundee with my wife Fran. I have been in sales for over 30 years but my most interesting job was being a part time firefighter when I lived in Laurencekirk. I used to run half marathons, play football and was a football referee for a few years but have slowed down a bit. These days I am a good man to have on your side in a pub quiz and I have appeared on quizzes 3 times on TV - on Grampian TV's Top Club many years ago, on Channel 4's Fifteen to One and most recently on BBC's Mastermind. In my spare time at the moment I am studying for a BSc in Psychology at Perth College UHI.
