The team at Powers & Tiltman Land Surveyors

Powers & Tiltman take great pride in having an experienced and motivated team who are successful at working collaboratively. Below are some of our key team members who can assist you with any query you may have:

Matthew Powers

Managing Director

Having worked for Cheshire County Council as a Civil Engineer for the Land Reclamation Department, Matthew joined Powers & Tiltman in September 1997, as a Land Surveyor. During this time he learned how to run the business in close partnership with his father, Michael Powers. In June 2007, Michael stepped down handing the business over to Matthew. It’s a family run business in the true sense of the word.

Matthew’s considerable experience in surveying both land and buildings has enabled him to provide innovative solutions to seemingly impossible problems and he’s happy for anyone with a land or building ‘problem’ to ring him for a chat. Responsible for the strategic direction of the business, forging new contacts and making sure our clients are kept happy and fulfilled is of paramount importance to him. Since 2007, Matthew has continued using the same ethics and values as his father, focusing on the adoption of the latest equipment and the continued investment in his staff and the company as a whole.

Matthew is currently working towards Member status with ICES.

Lucy Powers

Director and Company Secretary

Following the completion of an MBA, Lucy joined Powers & Tiltman in January 2007 as Business Development Director and Company Secretary. With a background (and degree) in retail and marketing for blue chip retail companies Lucy decided it was time invest her skills in the family business.

Responsible for all back office functions Lucy works closely with Matthew to define the marketing and business strategy, key performance indicators, human resource processes, company certifications and financial parameters of the business. Lucy’s role, in short, is to ‘up the ante’ of the professionalism of a company that already maintains high standards.

Peter joined Powers & Tiltman Ltd in October 1994 and over the last 19 years, he has risen from Junior Surveyor to Survey Manager, overseeing the work that comes through the door and managing the work in progress and a team of surveyors on a day to day basis.

Pete’s focus on quality, along with his considerable input into the compilation of our Technical Manual, means that Powers and Tiltman’s surveying processes are carried out with accuracy, ensuring that all work that leaves the premises is of the required standard. His experience with large topographical and measured building projects and his commitment to ensuring the team’s capability in these areas remains of a high standard, is a reflection of his hard work and dedication over the years.
