Meet the Team

Michael Magennis

Michael Magennis

I started plumbing as a school leaver over 45 years ago & haven't looked back since. Running a growing business means having to put your hand to administration as well as plumbing. I try to get out of the office & get my hands dirty as often as possible.

Check out the rest of my team below.

 

 

Antony "Root" Dugdale

Antony

I have been working for Michael for over 30 years. I am an old-school plumber, spending most of my time paired with our female plumber Hannah. The knowledge I hold is more than any book or training course could teach. I can turn my hand to all aspects of plumbing from connecting a washing machine to fitting solar-panel powered heating systems & underfloor heating.

 

William "Billy" Magennis

William

I am Michael's younger brother & one of the longest standing members of staff. I have been working with Michael for over 30 years. I am keen to learn new techniques & keep my qualifications up to date. I am a big believer in the idea that you are never to young or old to learn. I spend time working alongside the apprentices, always striving to learn new things whilst teaching them. My qualifications range from gas to oil.

Kate Quinn

I have been working for Michael for over 11 years. I deal with all the internet & emails side of things as well as the wages and pensions. Michael always describes my job title as “his PA“, I share the responsibility of the behind the scenes job with my mum Kate.

 

Alex Harrison

I am self employed and work alongside Michael when I’m needed. I specialise in lead work as well as all other plumbing needs. I have been working alongside Michael for over three years on and off between working for myself and travelling the world.

 

Ben Dixon

Ben Dixon

I am the youngest member of staff. I started with Michael from a very young age, joining the team on a work placement basis whilst still at school. Once leaving school I joined Kendal Collage to study for my plumbing qualifications. I have completed the first two years of plumbing. I'm now moving on to do my last two years studying at Kendal Collage and working alongside Michael.

George Frith

George Frith

I am the newest member of staff and I have been with Michael and the team for just under a year. I served my first two years apprenticeship with another company. I am now going to Kendal Collage one day a week with Ben to study my third year qualifications and working with Michael four days a week. I find it very helpful having another member of staff doing the course at collage so we can work together.

Grant Bond

I served my apprenticeship with another company. Now I'm full time with Michael and have been for a few years. I am fully qualified in working with gas, oil, and water. I like working on the bigger jobs such as installing boilers and working on new builds. 

Hannah Heaton

Hannah Heaton

I did my two year apprenticeship with Michael over 6 years ago. I am now self employed but work with Michael when I'm needed. I enjoy working on my own or within a team, I spend a lot of time paired up with Root to cover all aspects of plumbing, no job is too big or too small for us to get our hands into.
