Meet the Team
Carl Raynes - Managing Director
With over 30 years of experience in the industry, Carl began his working life as a plasterer and journeyed through self-employment before trading as Kelray Building Maintenance Ltd in 2004. Since then Carl has taken KELRAY Ltd from strength to strength. Considered very much a people’s person, Carl prides himself on building and sustaining good relationships with both customers and staff. Passionate about boosting employment opportunities locally Carl has also been a visiting practitioner on a part-time basis teaching apprentices and mature students the skill and art of quality plastering procedures and applications. Carl is also an active member of the Four Construction Training Group and values his role as chairperson of the committee. With a higher staff retention and a trusted reputation among high-profile clients Carl is dedicated to developing and planning for the future of KELRAY Ltd.
Emma Raynes - Company Secretary
Emma has had a key role in the success and development of KELRAY Ltd since she joined in the company in 2000. Emma originally joined us as an administrator after obtaining her HND in Business & Finance, but quickly excelled into the role of Office Manager. Emma's continuous experience and knowledge of the industry has equipped her to oversee the company's Financial Management, Human Resources and Marketing as well as planning for the future and development of KELRAY Ltd. Emma and Carl got married in December 2020.
Martyn Morgan - Contracts Manager
Martyn joined KELRAY Ltd in 2006 as a qualified carpenter, bringing over 30 years of experience in the industry. Martyn's natural leadership ability and experience within the field enabled him to train a number of our apprentice carpenters that helped form our carpentry division. As the company grew Martyn was promoted to Site Manager and more recently Contracts Manager as Martyn now oversees many projects at any given time. Martyn is often praised by customers for his approachable attitude - which we deem a valuable strength to have within the industry.
Terry John - Trainee Quantity Surveyor
Terry joined Kelray in September 2020 as a Trainee Quantity Surveyor whilst studying for his HNC Surveying. Prior to joining us, Terry was an excellent plasterer with great knowledge of the construction industry. During his short time in Kelray he has proven himself to be an excellent asset to the team. Fair play to Terry to be having a career change and studying in the middle of a global pandemic! Welcome Terry :-)
