Our Team

David Morris Managing Director

This is David, our Managing Director, FM Consultancy Director and principal tutor. David is the driving force behind the Xenon Group and wrote all of the original course material. A vastly experienced Facilities Manager, David was once credited with providing FM services for Noah’s Ark. Just watch out for his sense of humour in classes!

Sue Morris Director

This is Sue, our Training Director, with overall responsibility for all the training programmes we offer. Sue is a former teacher and nurse, so has the perfect skillset to coax you through your assignments. Don’t be fooled by the friendly exterior though - if your work isn’t up to standard, she’ll be sure to let you know!

Chris Morris Director

This is Chris. No-one is really sure what Chris’ actual role in the company is, but he seems to get involved in nearly everything! Look out for him at IWFM events in London, particularly those organised by the Rising FMs group for which he previously served as Chair.

Sophie Buck Director of Recruitment

As her title suggests, Sophie runs our recruitment division so if you're looking to hire staff or find a new job, she's the one you'll want to talk to. Sophie is incredibly friendly, exceptionally helpful and a true asset to the Xenon team. This description is 100% accurate and definitely not influenced by the fact that Sophie's other half happens to be a student of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

Naomi Birch Centre Manager

Naomi is the Centre Manager for our Leeds facility as well as acting as a teacher, assessor and personal tutor for our qualification students. A former Xenon student herself, she knows exactly what it's like to study for an IWFM qualification and is well placed to pass on her wisdom.

Clare Gairn Customer Relations Manager

Other than our reception team for your initial call, Clare will generally be the first person to contact for advice on our IWFM Professional Qualification training delivery. A very experienced Customer Service manager, Clare has received many compliments for her friendly and helpful advice as to the most appropriate course for you based on your experience and expertise; either as someone new to FM or as an experienced FM director looking to consolidate your vast experience with a professional qualification.

Joanne Rider Finance and HR Manager

As a professionally qualified HR manager, Joanne has recently added managing the Xenon Group Finance and Corporate Governance functions to her extensive commercial expertise. With almost 25 years of connection with the Xenon Group directors, Joanne played a vital role in the creation of the Xenon Group, and brings a wealth of professional experience to the often forgotten but critical back office functions, thereby allowing our front of house team to concentrate on customer service.

Nicki Martin Recruitment Specialist

As her title suggests, Nicki brings solid and extensive expertise to the Recruitment Division. A strong advocate of social media, Nicki has transformed the Xenon Group position in the FM marketplace, having coached some of the Xenon dinosaurs into regular postings on the avant-garde 'FacePage' and 'Linked-Out'. All Xenonites are ‘asked’ to submit their ‘copy’ for uploads twice a week to maintain our ratings. Resistance is futile!
