So we thought we’d take you behind the scenes to meet the team.

This week, it’s...

Bob Ellis - Managing Director - "The Captain"

Captain Bob has had more vocations than most of us have had hot dinners. Amongst his varied career before taking the helm at Focus, Bob was a...

  • BT Engineer
  • Retail Sales Manager
  • Scrap Metal Worker
  • University Technician
  • Production Controller
  • Work Study Engineer
  • Teacher
  • College Lecturer
  • Business Development Manager and
  • Education Consultant...

'Modest' Bob describes himself as a shy and retiring type, easily manipulated and easy going. The team, on the other hand liken him to a 'Pitbull chewing a wasp' on a bad day. Fortunately, Bob's got a cracking sense of humour to deal with it! (Though that doesn't explain why he has odd provisions such as squid sent via post to the office!)

When he's not moulding the team of the UK's leading fitness training business, Bob can often be found out on the water, boating, fishing, and most likely, eating.

We asked Bob...

Interesting Fact About You...

I was involved in a cave rescue (when I was thinner!)

What three things can you not live without?

Fishing, fishing and fishing. (For survival purposes, we hope he can actually fish!)

How Would Your Friends Describe You?

Very Unlucky

(We asked Bob's team the same question. Their response: Typical Yorkshireman!)

Why do you love your job?

The people, the responsibility, the freedom to say what I feel without reference to anyone, and seeing people grow.

...and grow we do! Aye Aye Captain!
