Our People

NuServe has over 600 employees and we regard every one of them as a valued member of the NuServe family.

We know from experience that people who are treated and paid fairly are more committed, more loyal and more professional. That’s how we ensure the quality service for which we are known and we want to work with clients who share the same values.

A large proportion of our people have been with us for over five years; many have developed new roles and responsibilities within the company; and some, we are proud to say, have left us to take up new opportunities as a result of our investment in their progress.

Senior management team

Simon Duke Managing Director.
Simon Duke
Managing Director

Simon doesn’t like standing still. He has lived on three continents so far and has a compulsion for challenging the status quo. He loves anything that promises innovation, believes bars are for raising and promises for keeping. When he’s not looking for new ways to improve things, he swims competitively (aiming to finish with a GB top 10 masters age group time this season) and makes a mean cup of coffee, having trained as a barista.

Yvonne Duke.
Yvonne Duke
HR Director

Job satisfaction to Yvonne is getting things right first time. As a former guitar teacher, though, she understands the importance of practice and putting in the work to make the performance perfect, a value she applies to getting the best out of our teams. She enjoys reading books that give her a deeper understanding of people, and when she’s not feeding her knowledge of the human psyche you’ll find her feeding someone else with one of her culinary creations.

Dax Goose.
Dax Goose
Operations Director

Singing Italian Opera during his youth, Dax knows just how to keep to the hymn sheet. He lives by the motto “Plan the work and work the plan” and applies this not only to his job but also to his golf game. He once fell 60ft without the assistance of a rope so now believes in being securely in control – with a little help.

Bernard Kirkman
Bernard Kirkman
Regional Operations Director

Bernard loves it when a plan comes together. He takes pride in motivating his teams to meet and exceed clients’ expectations. Having survived close encounters with a rhino, an elephant, a hippo and Michael Jackson, nothing fazes Bernard or dents his sense of humour. In his spare time he enjoys the company of his family, coaches children’s rugby and tests his culinary skills by cooking dishes from around the world.

Richard Lockwood.
Richard Lockwood
Director

Richard likes to stay in touch with nature and is passionate about improving the environment. You’ll often find him researching the most eco-friendly ways to keep our customers’ offices clean and he likes to spend his down time either at the stove with a challenging new recipe or out convening with nature in his camper van. He keeps a global view by climbing mountains and ranks the 4,017m Weissmies in the Swiss Alps as his greatest high.

Georgina Lockwood Sustainability Manager

Adventurous. That’s Georgina. Having cut her teeth exploring the African bush and horse riding in the Magaliesberg Mountains of South Africa, she then took to the world’s oceans as a trainee sailor on a three-masted barque. Her love of nature and the environment is now focused on corporate sustainability, her treasure is a trash report and her hunger for discovery is fed by running through the streets of London.

Wendy Maguire is a NuServe West Midlands Account Manager.
Wendy Maguire
Account Manager

Wendy has always been into her fitness, starting as a child when she was the youngest Coventry Schoolgirls Pentathlon champion two years on the run and even now she attends the gym most evenings. Another interesting fact is that she was chosen to represent the UK in the Junior Olympics in 1976 but unfortunately couldn’t attend as she broke her arm on the trampoline. At work Wendy is passionate about making the job run effectively and efficiently whilst having fully trained staff who are confident and content within their roles.

Cindy Marin
Area Manager

Creativity and attention to detail are Cindy’s drivers. She carries her love of design and innovation into every aspect of life, always looking for new and better solutions and spotting the nuances that open the door to meaningful relationships in and out of work. Relaxation for Cindy is being with friends, enjoying a glass of good wine or listening to the waves lap on a hot summer beach.
