Tim Nelson

Quote: "I have achieved over 25 years of marriage to my wonderful patient wife and have 2 grown up daughters I am very proud of. I was seeking a new challenge in life and Aqua has provided that opportunity. The team I work with have strengths and talents that allow us to provide a strong service offering to our clients, and I am happy to add my skills to the mix. I enjoy getting the job done with a sense of urgency to meet client expectations. I like to say I am a bit like the Jaguar E Type Mark classic car - traditional, yet reliable with an engine that purrs and grunts when you put your foot down!"

Alex Ward

Quote: "Being from Northern Ireland, and having the opportunity to compete internationally given our recent political history, I believe is a great achievement. I have also had the privilege of meeting the Queen during one of her visits to Belfast in the mid-noughties and that left an impression. I believe my tenacity in both my personal and business life is a great strength and I enjoy getting things over the finish line. I like to reach for the best for our clients and would see myself operating as a Porsche 911, but if you asked my wife she would say I was more of a BMW 5 Series Estate with ‘Sports’ package"
