Peter is our Managing Director and joined Mells in 1969 after his time in banking. His initial involvement was office based assisting with payroll, accounts and general office systems. His practical nature soon involved him with site work where he took on the responsibility, under the guidance of his father Bernard Fitzgerald, of surveying and estimating. Peter’s interest in buildings and new roofing systems as well as financial and management, involved all aspects of the growing Mells Roofing business. He is a founder member of the Institute of Roofing and spent 21 years as a member of the Flat Roofing Contractors Advisory Board and 14 years on their technical committee. He continues to contribute to the roofing industry as a member of the London & Southern Region committee of the National Federation of Roofing Contractors. His technical knowledge is extensive and his interest in new materials and systems means that Mells Roofing is continually embracing the rapidly changing roofing market.
