Witley Jones – Growing a family business

In this episode Ben interviews several members of Witley Jones a UK based manufacture bespoke furniture primarily for the education market.

It’s a family business that’s been going for over 20 years and he wanted to find out how it started, how it differs from a regular business and how they are managing succession.

You’ll be hearing from Chris & Jane Jones (dad, mum, and the original entrepreneurs), Matt Jones (director and eventual successor), Lucy Jones (who manages finance) and Simon Downes (current managing director) in that order.

This interview is a slightly different style from normal which we hope you’ll enjoy.
