Alan began his career as a Property Manager for a CBD Real Estate Company in 1974 and also completed Business Studies and Building Techniques at RMIT University during this period. In 1996, the attraction to being involved in all facets of Commercial Buildings and their Maintenance motivated Alan to run his own Building and Maintenance Business for 8 years until founding Arden in conjunction with Richard Pitcher in 2002. Alan holds an unlimited Commercial Builders Licence in Victoria with mutual recognition in all States of Australia as well as a diploma in OH&S.


Richard began his career in the building industry as a plumber and holds a Plumbing Licence and a Residential Builders (Vic) licence. Prior to the formation of Arden in 2002, Richard successfully ran his own Plumbing business for 12 years and has never forgotten the hands on experience he gained throughout this period. Richard is highly energetic and focused on developing the services Arden provides.
