WHO WE ARE
Break The Mould was founded in 2017 by Jack Parkhouse and Ben Naylor. After seeing a need to help grow and develop small businesses in the construction industry. The founders met when working for a British based multinational telecommunications conglomerate, and have worked together on various projects within different businesses since.
Jack grew up surrounded by a family run construction company that grew from a sole trader business into a Ltd company carrying out large scale construction projects across Central London. This created an interest in business from an early age. It gave him an insight into how small and medium businesses work, what holds them back and the keys to their success. After reading Economics at the University of Surrey his work life started in telecommunications. In 2012 he went to work for the family business and has helped its continued growth and development, he is still involved and manages the operational side of the business from its base in Surrey. Outside of work Jack spends his time with his wife, and two sons. When time allows, he can also be found watching football or playing golf.
Bens path to founding Break The Mould was one that came from a range of roles within some of the UK’s best-known brands. He has worked for leading names in telecommunications, insurance, and retail. It is this broad range of experience that allows him to offer insight into how ‘big business’ works and help develop and drive Break The Mould clients forward with clear strategic goals in mind. With a background in account management and sales, Ben is well suited to find new ways for our clients to expand their businesses and find new revenue streams. Outside of work Bens hobbies include playing football and travelling.
