Action Man to Exhibition Man

Retiring from the Marines, and his role as Director of Physical Training, in 2000, Allan, who originally trained as a builder, embarked upon a whole new world away from the forces.

Taking up the role as manager of a landscaping organisation that worked on the glamourous villas in the Orlando area, Allan enjoyed the sunshine, the new experience and a few encounters with some large alligators (enjoy may be a little strong for that last one). But the call of the British weather and a decent cup of tea saw him move back to the UK, and back to the harbour town of Poole, down on the South Coast.

And there he found us. His previous building experience and military ‘can-do’ attitude lend themselves perfectly to exhibition stand building, and the Quadrant2Design team.

“I still have some tricks of the trade to pick up yet” Allan says, “But quite honestly, putting together a Prestige Events System is easier, and far quicker, than even constructing the Meccano kit my Grandson received for Christmas! It’s very simple, and yet looks fantastic.”

We are extremely happy to welcome Allan on board and look forward to working with him at upcoming shows!
