Mutley is our office mascot. He is a handy dog to have around. He likes to deliver letters if the destination is local to the office and he guards the property at night. He's not officially on the payroll but he seems more than happy with the warm seat and bowl of water that we provide for him.







Jason Stapleton

Jason is our office manager and is responsible for ensuring the smooth running of Beechwood. As well as making sure the office runs efficiently, Jason also has the key role of organising the office parties!
