Managing directors, Geoff and Lee McIlroy, are true Cantabrians; born and bred.
Geoff fulfilled his childhood dream of becoming a builder way back in the late seventies with an apprenticeship for a large construction company. Here he climbed the ladder quickly, taking a leading foreman’s position within four years.
In 1990 he took the plunge into self-employment forming a partnership with a building mate. Fifteen years in this partnership not only provided a good grounding for managing and administering a small business, but also cemented many long term associations with sub-contractors and employees alike.
In February 2005, GMac Builders Ltd was established, with Geoff as Managing Director, and Lee working behind the scenes running the administration side of the business. The company has gone from strength to strength, with the introduction of Contracts Manager, Dom Wright-Stow, and at the forefront a team of quality tradesmen.
