Leadership team

Managing Director

Darrell Cann

With many years of experience as a civil engineer, property valuer and as a company owner, I have designed and built business systems in the USA, Canada, Australia and the UK.

I enjoy leading Apex, developing our young people and seeing them succeed, assessing and developing new technology which delivers real gains to our partners, this is very fulfilling.

Finance and People Director

Lisa Cann

I am a strong and positive person with interests as diverse as gender equality, environmental innovation, politics, and organisational culture through to textiles, history, renovation, reading and baking.  I really enjoy mentoring young adults and providing a strong sounding board for many of our staff.  I take great delight in seeing our younger staff develop and become successful in their roles and to provide them with a forward thinking and nurturing, productive workplace.

Development Director

Patrick Kape

I have been with Apex for over 7 years utilising my organisational skills to develop and maintain project management and delivery systems that ensure we deliver quality projects on time and on budget.

I have recently been involved with the transformation of our project management systems to Agile/Scrum methodologies which has resulted in many benefits to our partners.  I have a keen interest in consistently driving improvements in systems to ensure we are getting the best possible results.

I have strong interests in sport and outdoor activities as well as learning to speak French.

Partnership Development

Steve Gould

I have had a life long involvement in the property industry with both public bodies and private organisations in a variety of positions, including qualified valuer, senior manager, project management and product ownership positions.

I enjoy getting to know people, understanding what they need, seeking and devising solutions to the challenges that they face and then seeing them coming to fruition.  Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, walking, holidays, reading and watching sport – my days of playing are sadly long gone.

Shaping the future

New products, new technology, new services – that’s how we help shape the future.
