Jeff Riley

Associate Director

I have been working within the building services commissioning industry for nearly thirty years, being employed by only a few notable companies, with Crosscount certainly being amongst them.

I have now been employed by Crosscount for some thirteen years and can honestly say that I have enjoyed and continue to enjoy working for Crosscount.

Although I did start out on the tools a long time ago I have now earned a senior position within the company whereby I’m involved in the day to day running of the business alongside the Directors as well as offering help and advice to our onsite engineers and more importantly, Clients.

As much as I thoroughly enjoy the daily rigors, challenges, stress and diversity of the position I hold, I do still relish getting back in the field on the front line facing the muck and bullets which I find helps me keep abreast of the industry product changes and advances, resulting in a better understanding when problem solving.
