MEET THE TEAM
Mike is Managing Director of the Big Red Industries Group. Graduating the University of Huddersfield with a Business Degree, Mike moved on to work with world renowned companies – L’Oreal and Reckitt Benckiser. After gaining invaluable experience and learning the best processes, Mike started the Big Red Industries Group.
Mike firmly believes that Big Red should impact other people’s lives for the positive. This fundamental belief led to the creation of the Huddersfield Marathon Band. A marching band which raised over £125,000 for the UK deafblind charity Sense by completing two London Marathons and even picking up a Guinness World Record!
Looking to the future, Mike is excited about continuing to deliver fantastic projects for our growing client base.

Lucy runs the Big Red finance department. She joins us from a large Bradford-based construction company. Her experience in the construction industry, coupled with her time spent managing finance departments in fast-paced companies made her the perfect fit for this role.
Since joining Big Red, Lucy has come to realise that people within the construction industry tend not to share her love for knowing where every single penny has come from, or gone to. She now has to rule finance with an iron fist, if you haven’t raised a PO or handed in your receipts, you’d better enter her office with a cup of tea!
