Mark started the company in 1986 when he was 18. In those days, it was just Mark, a chainsaw, and a massive amount of determination. 30 years later, Knighton Countryside Management Ltd employs over 50 people. Mark oversees everything with his trademark enthusiasm, and somehow manages to be in at least three places at once.
On any given day he will be either in the office quoting jobs, or out on site making sure projects are running smoothly; he will find time to help the apprentices and he will, given half a chance, go out with his chainsaw to clear a fallen tree. Mark is Chair of Governors at the Dorset Studio School, which specialises in land-based education for the 13-19 age group. He is a finalist in this year’s ‘Blackmore Vale Businessperson of the Year’ award.

With over 50 staff, a fleet of 30 vehicles, and a huge variety of specialist plant, the sheer logistics of the task are immense.
