You'll soon get to know and love us (hopefully). Here's a little bit about our team - who's who and what they do in the world of Blueleaf.


Adrian Lomas - CEO

Adrian is a people person. He’s the one to go to if you need support or have ideas. Adrian also loves to use smiley faces in his communications with you.  You'll soon learn what these mean, it can be ‘great work’ or ‘yes, please action this’. Simply put, if it's smiley, it’s always positive.

Rob Smith - Managing Director

Rob loves figures. Ask him anything and his answer will be ‘what’s the ROI?’ Rob is to the point but you'll come to love him for it as he gets stuff done. He'll challenge you (remember our core values) but he'll also help you develop personally and make you darn good at your role.

Here's our office plan, this should make your first few days a little easier.

Handy Hint:

If you want any of the team's direct dial numbers (for calling internally) or mobile numbers, you can find them in Slack - just type "Call [and the person's name]", for example "Call Adrian" and Slackbot will give you the details.
