Lynn Todhunter - Customer Services Manager

Lynn Todhunter - Customer Services Manager

I consider myself to be a very fortunate person having been born and raised in the countryside of Teesdale.  After leaving college I started work in an accountant's office in the town and spent 16 years preparing accounts and dealing with clients. After a career break to raise my son I joined Enterprise House and have been here since 1998.  I am now Customer Services Manager and have an active part in the running of Teesdale Development Company Ltd as Company Secretary. I am the first point of contact for the tenants and any visitors who call at Enterprise House, which I see as a very important role. I try to make sure that their visit has been a pleasant and memorable experience that leaves a lasting impression.  Over the years I have seen tenants successfully develop and grow their business; of course, there are some tenants who don't make it, but I will always feel privileged to have been part of their drive and ambition whatever the outcome may be.

With Lynn as a role model I hope to provide the same high level of support to tenants and users, playing an important part in their professional lives, and assisting in any way possible.  Having lived in the “Barney” area for 12 years I’m delighted to be involved in a local enterprise with so much to offer.  Being customer services assistant at Teesdale Development Company Ltd is an enjoyable opportunity to be part of commercial Teesdale and its’ future.

Alastair Dinwiddie - Chairman

Born in London I grew up in Ireland, Germany and Malaysia before returning to school in Cumbria. I studied engineering at Edinburgh University, and many years later, business at London Business School. I have worked in the oil and instrumentation industries living a nomadic life covering the Middle East, Far East and Europe before returning to the UK in 89 and settling in Teesdale in 92 where I and my family have been based ever since. Over 20 years in one place, no wonder it feels like home!

I now run Aladin Enterprises Ltd, a business consultancy, working with various local businesses as well as being treasurer of Radio Teesdale.

Being a part of a community is very special after spending less than 5 years in any one place; and where better to live and work than Teesdale and Wear Valley. Great people and great environment.
