Contraflex founder John Henry
Managing Director

John Henry

They say that the character of a company is determined by the nature of its  former owner. That may explain why customers find Contraflex so approachable and easy to deal with. You see, when John Henry founded Contraflex in 2000, he brought his own innate warmth and geniality to the company. He also brought rigorous honesty and integrity, characteristics which remain instilled to this day.

Finance Director

Cathryne Mahood

Cathy’ is the financial director for Contraflex and her car number plate really should begin with the letters CCC. That’s because no matter what’s going on around her, Cathy always remains Cool, Calm & Collected! Utterly unflappable, her sane, rational approach to financial issues is much appreciated by customers and colleagues alike, because it makes doing business so much easier for everyone.

Senior Account Manager

Gerry Trainor

Gerry’s career track includes management roles with the BBC, Tesco and a major motor group, but one common theme runs throughout – a genuine desire to deliver the best possible service to every customer. This is an approach he applies diligently at Contraflex. Mind you, Gerry’s immersion in the motor industry hasn’t stopped him earning his sea legs – there’s nothing he loves more than relaxing on an exotic cruise to far distant shores!
