Meet the Team

We are a small team of talented individuals with a wide range of skills and experience. We love what we do, we do it with passion and are all car enthusiasts ourselves.


Director / Marketing / Sales

Founding Ecosse back in the 90’s is now a lifetime ago, yes, yes we are all getting on now!  It was essentially an idea borne from the desire to have an enthusiastic specialist garage that could provide a one stop shop for the discerning customer that loves to modify.  Modifying has changed, but customisation is about the individual, that is certainly here to stay!  It’s been an awesome journey with Diane getting to use her artistic and technical flair on making concepts into reality.  She still loves cars, although they more Porsche based for the driving these days and enjoys a track day when the fancy takes her.  She’s still very proud of her achievements to break into the man motor trade for the ‘wo-man power’ struggle and managing to trade in these challenging times with her top team.

Director / Master Technician

Being the co-founder does make him quite important in this Ecosse journey but it’s his mechanical and electrical knowledge that has created some historic cover cars through the years. Behind the scenes Matt has built a reputation for his problem solving, rally and race preparation skills along with being involved with the racing scene whether its autograss, 4×4, track or competitive racing.  Having the passion for all types of vehicles is a positive but negatively it means Matt is often accused of having a car hoarding problem!

After escaping a Peugeot dealership where he was time served working in a busy parts department, Greg has an unhealthy memory for parts numbers.  He still astounds us with his ability to recite retro throwback part numbers while sourcing parts for our revival jobs.  Slowly, though, his part number prowess is being over written with new part numbers and they aren’t Peugeot.  He’s been here 16 years & counting and still manages to drink at least a lorry load of tea in a week.

Reception & Accounts

This numbers whizz finds nothing more satisfying than to reconcile accounts.  She has been here over 10 years and did her qualifications through Ecosse when she was a young lass.  One thing that has never changed is her die hard love for Liverpool FC but now Rangers seems to have someone there that is partially stealing her attention.  Something to do with a manager?

Master Painter

When it comes to painting, over the years, we’ve seen countless examples of people who call themselves painters but simply apply paint to a car, whereas at the other end of the scale there are quality spray painters who see it as an art which they can hone to perfection, Scotty falls firmly at the high end of the latter category and is the top gun man when it comes to his craft.  He’s been with Ecosse 18 years and counting and although he’s a closet RS Ford concourse lover, we have always over looked this kink.  Since he’s been responsible for colour coating the most famous cars Ecosse have ever produced he’s earned an unrivalled reputation for his quality of finish.

Once upon a time, a fresh faced young boy started his apprenticeship with us. This was over 15 years ago & counting and although his fresh face is now hidden in the beard undergrowth, he has cut his teeth on all things Peugeot and our modifying experience has allowed Hedgie (as he’s affectionately known here, due to his spiky hairstyle back in the day) to think out of the box regarding diagnostics, restorations and track preparation.  He has now extended his skill set to many makes and models. Unfortunately his beard gets more styling than his hair these days, compared to his younger years!

His unhealthy interest in Jap cars is fuelled by his own ownership of a couple of Type R’s.  He has built a solid background that covers all makes and models but excelled in dealerships such as Mazda, BMW, Honda and a tuning specialist.  A constant upbeat optimist in the workshop, never a problem only a challenge!

Creative Media & Motor Mover.

He’s no stranger to the Ecosse name. Tony was with us throughout the Max Power years, starting through work experience as a 14 year old way back in 1999, he was here into his twenties, being heavily involved with creative projects such as the Supercharged 306 Estate and Inti’s Orange 206 Toxic to name a few. His artistic flair and geeky computer skills have never left him. Through the years in the wilderness away from the motor trade, he’s ended up having a bit of an obsession with BMW’s, but never lost touch with Ecosse. Unfortunately on his return we have had to welcome back his dodgy beard and a man band as part of being an equal opportunity employer. To be fair this does apply to the rest of the motley crew.

Bodyshop Technician

Although John is a new addition to the team we have already discovered his secret car fetish is Citroen C2’s which means he’s no stranger to tinkering with French rides in his spare time. Oooh La La! His talented body shop skills are now being plied in house and there’s no shortage of new projects for him to get involved with.

Apprentice Bodyshop Technician

Meet Ryan, our new bodyshop apprentice. Although just fresh out of school he is the proud owner of the largest pair of feet out of us all. Although he doesn’t have a license yet we can see some slight makings of a Jap car affection there so we expect he’ll follow along those lines once he’s passed his test.

General Dogsbody

Can usually be found lazing about the office, he may sometimes appear a little barky and grumpy at first but we can assure you he is a total softie once he’s had some attention directed towards him.
