Nick Kelly, Managing Director
Nick has worked on all sides of the industry, from supplier to client and latterly as director of a national contractor. In 1999 after twenty-five years in the industry he set out to buy a business which was staffed by competent people who understood the construction process and who could effectively communicate and wanted to utilise the best technology available for the benefit of the project. In the absence of a business that matched this criteria he set up his own.
Peter Jones, Techincal Services Director
After having worked as commercial manager on some of the largest construction projects in some of the world's most exotic locations, including Hong Kong, Barbados and Botswana, Peter decided to return to the U.K. In 1999 after sampling major projects in London, Peter returned to his native South Wales with the objective of forming a company which could offer clients a world-class construction service.
Stuart Epps, Finance Director
Having trained at BDO Stoy Hayward in London and spent 4 years as Financial Controller for M&C Saatchi, the UK's seventh largest and fastest growing advertising agency, Stuart moved to South Wales in January 2001. Here he became Finance Director of the National Britannia Group, responsible for integrating an aggressive acquisition strategy and reshaping the business structure and process. Seeking a new and exciting challenge, he was attracted by the dynamism and growth potential of Opco and joined as Finance Director in December 2003.

Nigel Coulter, Operations Director
Nigel is Operations Director responsible for the Westbury Holdings Project. A building graduate from Ulster, Nigel gained much of his early experience with a national contractor in London and South East before moving to South Wales, where as Projects Manager, he has added a huge variety of building projects to his personal portfolio.
James Coombs, Operations Director
James believes that a successful business is one whose staff share a desire to achieve common goals through commitment, professionalism and a determination to succeed. Clear business processes should lead to efficient working practices whilst contributing to an environment where initiative, original thought and flexibility are encouraged and rewarded. It is his firm belief that individual and organisational interaction with a successful business should be an enjoyable experience for all. James has been with the company since inception and believes the company’s desire to satisfy these basic fundamentals coupled with its willingness to continually reappraise its approach to business has been key to its rapid growth to date and will continue to contribute to its future success.

Gareth Williams, Commercial Director
Gareth believes that high quality people and service are the key to a successful business, challenging preconceptions and standards to improve and develop, but always focussed upon helping clients to achieve their aspirations.

After almost 30 years in the construction industry working in locations throughout the South of the UK and Channel Islands, he decided to return to work in South Wales but wanted to be part of something that was more than a traditional building company. He looked for a company with an approach that matched his values, focussed upon building relationships for mutual benefit and putting people first.

Gareth joined Opco in the summer of 2005.
