The Team

Tricia Craig

Managing Director and Business Manager

Delivering great customer service and having a great team are my priorities.

Since 1999, I have seen Metro Rod North East grow from having 2 employees to 20 and constantly strive to increase the amount of work we get in so that I can offer more people the security of full time permanent employment.

It’s one thing to clear drains; through investment and working with our clients, we ensure that we deliver the best possible service to meet their needs. I want to make sure that our clients are delighted with the service they receive from Metro Rod.

At the beginning of 2016, I also opened a further business, Metro Plumb, to offer our customers additional reactive plumbing services.

In 2016 I won an award from the British Franchise Association, where I was named Female Franchisee of the Year. This is a prestigious award and I am absolutely thrilled.

I have 2 dogs that keep me busy when I’m not at work and I love the Northumberland Beaches and to travel.

Amy Williamson

Office Manager

My aim is to ensure that our customers have the best experiences possible; from their initial conversation with our office to booking the works in, all the way through to receiving the invoice.

I work with my team in the office to ensure we are communicating effectively with our customers to give them peace of mind, fast information in real time and transparency in our pricing. All of this means our customers are happy with the service that we provide and return to us time and time again.

When I am not at work I try and do lots of fun things with my son.  I love music and going to concerts; my all-time favourite is Fleetwood Mac!

Geoff Lough

Operations Manager

Since joining Metro Rod in 2003 I have been an engineer and worked my way up to my current position of Operations Manager. I hold an IOSH certificate in Managing Safely and ensure that all of the engineers have the correct training and equipment to work safely.

I am always looking for cutting edge technology to provide the best service possible to our clients. We have recently invested in I-Touch CCTV Equipment which allows for live data transmission between the engineers on site to the office and our customers.

Outside of work I am kept busy by my little boy and my dog. When I get the chance I also enjoy going to various racing events on my motorbike.
