Bruce Read

As Building Services & Facilities Manager I am responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of the buildings and grounds across five locations.


Prior to joining Gotelee, I worked for over 21 years in United Nations Peacekeeping Missions in the Engineering section serving in Cambodia, Haiti, Western Sahara, D.R.Congo and finally Iraq, where I was Facilities Manager at the UNHQ in Baghdad and was also assigned to the Emergency Management Cell and trained as a Combat Medic and Ambulance driver. Upon leaving the UN, I joined 2623 Squadron, Royal Auxiliary Air Force Regiment and served for three years. Being a Felixstowe boy I’ve also worked briefly at the Docks.

Other Information

Away from the office, I’m to be found most Saturdays on a block of woodland which I co-own and which I’m slowly trying to turn into a Glampsite. I enjoy Salsa dancing, yoga, rugby, squash, weight training, shooting and fishing, making wine, baking cakes and in the Summer, just sitting on the beach sunbathing with my best pal, Uki the Black Lab.
