Meet the #teamPhoenix - Pat Ryan

Here at Phoenix, we are proud of every member of our team. Whether they're in the office or on-site, everyone works tirelessly to ensure that the overall stability and success of Phoenix is always at the highest level.

As we continue to introduce members of our wonderful team we are excited to get to know Pat Ryan , who is a Quantity Surveyor in our Drywall team here at Phoenix!

He is an important member of the team and we are delighted to learn more about him in meet the #teamPhoenix!



How long have you been at Phoenix for, and what do you enjoy about your job?

I’ve been at Phoenix for 28 months working for the Drywall arm of the Business. I’m enjoying helping the team in building a reputable and complimentary function to our older and wiser Brickwork Family.


Describe one of your favourite work memories?

I was working as a main contract QS on a housing development many years ago and we had a temporary site manager for a week of holiday cover. While doing a site visit, he spent the entire day harassing me about UFO’s! Sadly, I can’t remember the guy’s name, but I never fail to smile when I remember to this day and imagine him on a site somewhere right now doing the exact same thing to some other poor soul.


What did you want to be when you were younger?

Different things at different ages, but probably the one that was most consistent was being a Footballer like most of the lads I grew up with.    


Tell us about your first ever job?

If you mean the first thing, I was paid for it would probably be at primary school selling portrait pictures I drew of WWF Wrestlers to other kids.

If it doesn’t involve payment, then it would be helping out on my Grandparent’s farm.


Share the best piece of advice that anyone has ever given you?

‘’Do to others as you would have them do to you.’’


What destination do you hope to visit one day?

I’d like to go to Israel when the kids are old enough to enjoy a holiday that doesn’t involve constant entertainment!


And finally, what does being part of #teamPhoenix mean to you?

Passion, Hard work, Opportunity, Excellence, Nurturing, Inclusivity, X-Factor… ok I had to shoehorn that one in! but you could say our combined offering of brickwork, scaffold & Drywall is one of a kind ?
