Lisa Walker

Office Manager

Lisa (s)mothers the team and is the friendly face of the main office and our Rottweiler when we need protecting. The kettle is always on unless work has finished - then after walking Monty, she can be found with a book in one hand and a glass of wine in the other. We all reckon she finishes the wine before the book but that does not make her a bad person.

Marc Chase

Workshop Manager

Marc is the driving force of the service & parts department within Marine Matters. At work he is organised, motivated and a key part of the team. Out of work he loves spending time with his family, walking the dogs or mucking out the horses. When left to play on his own he can often be found with a rod in hand pretending to catch fish. When back ashore (often empty handed!) it is a curry on the menu with a beer.

James Biggerstaff


James loves to get his hands dirty. A valuable member of the team who can often be found in one of our mobile servicing vans when not in our workshop. One of lifes tinkers - he loves to tinker with cars, boats and anything else that has an engine! Outside of work James can often be found surfing although sometimes that is the internet rather than the waves!!

Jaz Willis


Jaz splits her time between engineering and boat building. Enjoying the variety at work, she is as happy to be fixing engines as she is fixing consoles. Outside of work, Jaz enjoys being in the great outdoors, whether that is on or off the water.

Rocco Dove

Boat Buliding Apprentice

Rocco has a great can-do attitude and is a keen learner. Joining the team in Summer 2021, his enthusiasm for any task is refreshing and his sunny disposition never fails to make everyone smile.
Outside of work Rocco can often be found at the gym, albeit not to work out but to watch everyone else! A keen BMX Racing rider, Rocco lives life in the fast lane when he can.

Henry Hillier

Managing Director

Henry still thinks he is an "essence" Royal Marine but doesn't physically look like one these days. He is passionate about customer service as well as maintaining a motivated, happy and committed team. Henry keeps the troops in check or that's what the rest of the team let him believe. Always willing to have a chat but it might take longer than you expected.

General Mischief

Monty is a great dog and thinks the office is his and we all work round him. He absolutely loves it when his tummy is stroked. He mostly sleeps and eats, but sometimes he barks at people if they come into "his" office but, just like the rest of us, he does what he's told and gets back in his bed when Lisa tells him to!
