Having qualified as a naval architect, Gwen started her career in boat building in Plymouth, building and refitting RNLI boats and other leisure craft but on moving to the North West, a change of career was required and construction seemed the best fit. Starting with high speed retail and then into contracting, delivering office parks and schools, Gwen undertook a variety of roles. In 2008, Gwen joined Procure Plus Holdings Ltd, a not for profit regeneration company that creates an income from aggregating social housing construction works and spends it to support those distant from the labour market into work, initially linked to the construction works it facilitates but now across a variety of sectors. Driven by a passion to make business beneficial for all, the group has expanded and now includes an offsite construction house building company, aiming to utilise technology and different skills to deliver more cost effective homes as well as another charity, Women on the Tools, to support more women into construction. As Managing Director, Gwen continues to look for new ways to innovate and create opportunities for the people within the business to grow. The skills Gwen brings to Digartref are; Construction, leadership, management. Gwen believes that everyone should have a safe and secure place to live and as such, we should all try to do something to eliminate homelessness for the future.
