Dean Houghton

Managing Director

What are you most proud of at Harris Evolution?

At Harris Evolution I am most proud of the company we have created, the culture we have and the service we offer. I got involved with the business when it was a couple of men in vans and it has been great to contribute and build the business to what it is today and carry on building it to where it will be in the future. Not only has it been great to build the business but it has also built me as a person and I have learnt so much about myself from my work environment which I have now moved into my personal life.

What puts a smile on your face?

Before children I was sports mad and would attend and watch any sport and played competitively in most sports, football was my main sport, playing since the age of 5 and became captain of most teams I played for, this gives me skills as a leader and how to manage a team, also give me the attitude to never give up and push hard/work hard to achieve what you want to achieve. Since children sports has taken a back seat and now, I fully engross any time I have outside of work into my family. Having 2 young children aged 1 and 3 brings a new challenge every day, I get so much enjoyment from watching them grow and assisting in teaching them new things, however, I can never teach them more than they have taught me over the past 3 years.

What do you do outside of work that moulds you to be the person you at work?

Friends, family, growth, achievement, making others happy.
