Meet The Team
We are the team behind R-evolution. We celebrate passion, hard work and kindness, and we think our differences are what make us great. We also happen to think we're pretty funny, but you can be the judge of that. Here you can get to know us a little better - inside and outside of work. If you see us around the workshop, feel free to say hi - we are always happy to have a chat!
We would also like to say thank you to our 60+ volunteers and trainees who dedicate their spare time to R-evolution.
