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 which had been 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.
Ben and his wife have three children and live in Haslemere, Surrey.
