Meet The Team

We are very proud of our senior management team, each one of them committed to delivering expertise in their particular field and keen to demonstrate the company’s commitment to client care.  The management team have been assembled with considerable care, in order to bring to the company experienced professionals with a wide variety of experience.

Since 1979 C.B.S. has been privately owned by the Cripwell family and that still remains to this day.  Although we have a strong desire to develop as a company the values associated with a family business are embedded in our culture.
