Meet the Red Earth team

Simon Friend

Founder of Red Earth

Simon combines the love for his home region with over 30 years experience as a Chartered Surveyor.  Design led development with integrity is his aim.

Simon has a wealth of experience in the development process including battling through the planning system and project management of complex construction contracts.  All projects have been profitable, even during difficult recessionary years.  Simon also provides consultancy advice and has a very successful track record in grant/trust applications. His motto is “never ever give up!”

Simon is keen to undertake regeneration projects working in partnership with community groups in some of the most deprived areas of the UK.  If you are interested in finding out more about this – then please do get in touch.

A 25 year relationship with Uganda has also given rise to opportunities for development, both residential and commercial, in Uganda.  Apart from the business element, Simon and his wife Judy are also keen supporters of charitable work in the country.

Rozi Allen

Chartered Accountant

Rozi is a Chartered Accountant with experience across several large companies.

Rozi decided that the best way to combine motherhood and accountancy was to become an independent advisor.  She now manages Red Earth’s finances.  Rozi was brought up in Kenya and so also has a love for this region of Africa.
