A former engineer has swapped his toolbox for the opportunity to run his own company after starting out in business as a professional oven valeter.
Bob Knight, who previously worked as a telephone engineer for well-known organisations including BT and the Metropolitan Police Service, in a career spanning more than 35 years, is now the owner of Ovenu Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth.
Bob, 56, who lives in Lowestoft, is also a Technical Member of the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) and was keen to become his own boss, when embarking on a change of direction.
Mr Knight said: “I have enjoyed a rewarding career in engineering, but I felt that it was time for a change. The opportunity with Ovenu is a perfect fit for me, as I actually enjoy cleaning, which might surprise a few people! I am also fulfilling a lifelong ambition to work for myself, so the decision was a no-brainer.
“It will be challenging but I am aiming to hit the ground running and will hopefully create a thriving, small business. I am now looking forward to building a long lasting relationship with my clientele and can’t wait to get started.”
Ovenu Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth serves homes and businesses throughout Lowestoft and Great Yarmouth, including all surrounding towns and villages.
