Our Team


Having the right people for the right seats

We believe that to be successful the right people need to sit in the right seats and that’s exactly what our team are. Everybody has the ability to do the job but what matters most is that every team member meets our culture values. Each Sevronian might be an individual but together we work like well-oiled machine, reaching goals fast and effective.

Dale Allen

Dale Allen

Managing Director

I’m adventurous, fun and a little weird. I feel that safety is my life and my vision is to rebuild it by creating the world’s largest safety community called “The Knights of Safety”. I was born and raised in Leyland, Lancashire, England, and I’m still here. I did move to Spain and live in a caravan for a couple of years in the sun, but other than that I love England and missed it too much.

I love playing guitar and piano. I love playing football (amateur), golf (off 23!), sea fishing (or ‘fishing rod holding’, as there are no fish around our shores) and writing music for the world’s first health and safety rock band called “The Knights of Safety”.

Seriously, if you love safety as much as me, get in touch and let’s transform it together.

I grew up in a small town called Leyland where I still work today. I have recently been fortunate enough to move to the south part of the Lake District which is a lovely part of the country. My dad and his wife have just taken early retirement and moved to Devon so I’m is looking forward to the free holidays visiting him and exploring that part of the world.
My weekends and spare time are spent visiting friends and family, exploring the Lakes with my dog, cooking and having a drink or 2 🙂

James Foley

Salesman

I have had many jobs, holidays and life changing adventures in my life but working here with our Sevronian team must be said is the icing on the cake. I was born and breed in Lancashire and love every day of my life taking every day as it comes. I had a serious brain injury in 2005 and have suffered ever since with the trauma it brought me but that is where my passion for health and safety evolved from. It still bedazzles me as to how people at home, work and in their social lives feel that they can take their own lives, or others, into their own hands. Love and respect life before it has gone.

I’m Carl, one of the software developers. Born and raised in the North West, haven’t wandered too far from the nest, and not adventurous enough to have a particularly exciting history to detail.

Jane Walker

Personal Assistant to Dale Allen

Working as a PA for Dale every day is different. I love coming to work to see what challenges are ahead of me, it could be ordering new chairs for the office or researching ideas for our monthly  team building event and obviously organizing Dale! I can honestly say I have never worked with a nicer bunch of people and in such a great atmosphere.
In my spare time I enjoy walking my 3 rescue dogs and looking after my 2 pet pigs, geese and chickens – I’m definitely a country girl at heart. I also enjoy  interior design,  cooking and making jam and chutney from my own fruit trees.
I’m very much looking forward to what new adventures 2017 will bring in both my  work and personal life.

Joanne Marshall

Head of Finances and HR Department

Aside from looking after the finances of the business, I also head the HR Department – I ensure all Severonians are kept duly in line and carry out their jobs with the upmost commitment! 

I like to think I am fun and approachable, and when I am not in work I am looking after my adventurous toddler and handling everything he can (and often literally does) throw at me. If I have any time left at the end of the day, then I like a trip to the gym to unwind and ease my mind.

Rosie

Director of team happiness

I come to work with a cheerful mood, happy so see everyone. My job at Sevron is looking cute, sleeping and being petted which helps bring stress levels down.
I usually behave well apart from once peeing in the software team’s office and now they don’t let me in anymore, I don’t know why… In my free time I like to go for walks, snuggle with my mum and chew on my toys or anything that’s has been left on the floor.
