Charles Dowson

Charles Dowson

Finance Director

Charles started life in the Army, having had the edges knocked off there, he started a vehicle tracking business with some friends which was sold successfully in 2009. With two relatively large scale renovation and extension projects under his belt, he joined Mike at DIY Doctor in 2013. Charles has a Masters in Business Administration and looks after all the administration and finances for Foundations Up.

Charles is also trained as a domestic energy assessor, so when we were approved as LoftZone installers, it made sense for Charles to look after this area of the business and conduct loft surveys.
