After studying Design at University Ben continued his passion for furniture and interior Design. He has a wealth of experience in the kitchen and furniture business having worked for Artichoke, a bespoke kitchen manufacturer, Strachan Furniture Makers and Smallbone of Devizes before starting his own kitchen company, Gane Design in 2007. Ben bought and took over CPL Kitchens in 2011. It was an established kitchen firm started in 1980 by David Priest. By amalgamating the two companies Ben was able to benefit from a wider supply pool as well as an increased client contact list. CPL Kitchens was re-branded to Charter Walk in March 2017 and a second kitchen showroom is planned for Summer 2017.
Ben and his wife have 3 children and live in Haslemere, Surrey.
