After a highly successful career in the fashion industry, and as the author of a best-selling autobiography - A Pocketful of Holes and Dreams - Jeff has an innate understanding of what sells. His passion for reclaimed architectural features began some forty years ago, when he refurbished his chain of fashion stores using period features. With an eye for detail and quality, Jeff spends his time sourcing reclaimed materials and fabulous vintage and antique furniture and garden products from all over the world.
Gina is not only our Company Director, she is also responsible for sourcing all the wonderful homeware and decorative items and our fantastic selection of gift ideas. Her greatest challenge, however, is keeping the Team at Reclaimed world in check - especially her husband Jeff!
Phil ran his own successful joinery contracting company for several years before joining the family’s reclamation business alongside his wife Katie and in-laws Jeff and Gina. Phil is the man who never stops! When’s he’s not busy single-handedly building us a new office or showroom, you’ll find him around the yard dealing with our wide selection of reclamation products and looking after customers.
After a fourteen-year teaching career, Katie joined the family business alongside her husband Phil. She’s now our Administration Queen, keeping a close eye on all of our incoming and outgoing stock (and trust us, it never stops coming in!). She also works alongside mum Gina to source beautiful new homeware products for our showrooms.
Ben’s background in the antiques auction world makes him the perfect person to act as ‘talent-scout’ for many of the beautiful pieces at yard. Alongside Jeff and Phil, he’s part of Reclaimed World’s ‘Lads in a Van’ squad, who are regularly to be found travelling up and down the country on the search for fantastic antique and reclaimed goodies to stock our showrooms and garden areas.
With a background in automotive engineering, Martin is a long-term member of the team at Reclaimed World. In his new role, he is responsible for working his merchandising magic around the yard, regularly updating our showrooms and garden areas almost daily to keep them looking fresh and inviting.
With over 30 years admin and customer service experience, Marianne keeps the office running like a dream. She researches exciting new places all over the country for us to go treasure hunting for new stock, as well as looking after customers over the phone and at the yard.
Jordan previously worked building websites for the education sector. He is now doing great work as our photographer and digital marketing wizard, and has even managed to talk Jeff into starring on TikTok! You’ll find him working on the website or running around the yard with a camera, snapping photos and videos of all our lovely stock.
Our talented joiner Olly is the man responsible for many of the unique bespoke offerings at Reclaimed World, utilising and re-imagining reclaimed materials to create stunning one-off pieces of furniture which are highly sought after by our customers. Follow the sound of guitar music to find him and John sanding up a storm in the workshop...
A former professional footballer, Suzie might be getting on a bit these days, but she still has the dribbling skills which would make her eligible for the England squad. These days she can be found keeping a watchful eye over the proceedings in the office and vetting doggy visitors to the yard.
Despite her job title, our beautiful German Shepherd Eco (short for ‘Eco Friendly’), is the living embodiment of the phrase ‘big friendly giant’ – she’d sooner lick you to death than harm you! When she is not eating us out of house and home, she can usually be found basking in the sunshine.
