Charlotte has been marketing manager since March 2013 and since then has overseen the expansion of our area into Gloucestershire; the addition of various new, exciting technologies which we have added to our kit.
Her responsibilities include ensuring the best service is offered to customers, ensuring that new and existing clients are offered any of our full range of innovative services so that our customers are aware of everything we can do to help them repair and maintain their property.
Charlotte is also responsible for engaging with customers on our online profiles, through our website and various social media accounts such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
In her spare time, she enjoys baking, creative writing and gaming, often doing all three with her children.
Dean joined the business in 2016 as our Sales Manager after deciding on a career change. He has a first class honours degree from Coventry University and his previous work experience varies from hospitality services, through to working in the public sector, so he has a variety of skills within the scope of customer service.
Despite his relatively short time with us, Dean has already made some great connections at local networking events. He works closely with Charlotte to produce new, informative content for our customers. His role involves some office based work and he also travels out to site in order to ensure that new and old customers are getting the service they need. Whether they require monthly, bi-annually or annual PPMs, or whether they require a one-time quote or whether they need something else entirely, Dean works with clients to ensure their needs are met.
In his spare time, Dean enjoys fishing, drumming with his band and spending time with his family.
Dot joined the office based team in May 2015. She brought a wide range of customer service skills to the job, which combined with an eagerness to learn the ropes, meant she soon settled into the role. Now she runs the administration of the office, responds to queries from customers and organises the plumbers and engineers.
We are very happy to have her on our team and the local birds are very pleased, too, as she often spends her breaks ensuring that their feeders are full!
In her spare time Dot enjoys reading and watching the wildlife at her home.

Tony joined Metro Rod on the 9th of October 2006. He started out as a general assistant gaining experience on the job while helping out the other engineers whenever they needed a second man on a job. After 6 months, and after obtaining his driving licence, he was ready to go out on his own and he’s never looked back. These days he is a highly competent drainage engineer with a lot of experience in the field.
In his spare time, Tony enjoys spending time in his shed, building robots with his children and taking them on adventures.
Paul is the longest serving drainage engineer here at Metro Rod (Oxon & West Bucks). He started with us on the 9th of June 2006 and he started out working on sites, drawing on his previous experience working for other drainage companies while he learned our procedures. Today he is largely office based, focusing on coding the CCTV surveys and fielding technical queries from the other engineers and from clients – as well as eating all the biscuits.
In his spare time, he enjoys tinkering with his collection of motorbikes.
Mark has worked with us since July 2013. He had previous experience from working with other drainage contractors and is always ready with a smile, meaning he is well liked by both colleagues and customers.
In his spare time, Mark enjoys going to gigs and fixing up his most prized possession: his car!
Kier joined us in January 2019 as a General Assistant and after a year in that role, he progressed to become a full Drainage Engineer. He was lucky to learn on the job, gaining real experience while working as an assistant to the other drainage engineers, and now is one of our most competent engineers. More recently he has undertaken pump maintenance training as our business grows.
In his spare time, Kier builds and maintains computers for gaming purposes.
